How do you keep track of your schedule? I’ve experimented with several different organizing systems over the years, but I always seem to return to a pen and paper calender. It’s not high tech by any means, but it gets the job done.
Lately, I’ve been into the whole idea of paper mousepads. I tend to eat at my desk more than I should, so my cloth mousepad is always grungy looking. Having a mousepad that lets me jot down my schedule and rip off the top sheet of paper whenever I need a clean surface makes my day a tiny bit less stressful. It also helps conserve some space in my small office, which is always a good thing.
There are several companies that make paper mousepads, but I like the fun design of this paper mousepad from Knock Knock. The hand-lettering is a cute touch and the week at a glance design makes it easy to quickly identify whether or not your child’s after school activities are going to conflict with your own work appointments or your husband’s night out with the guys. There’s plenty of room to write, so you can even jot down shopping lists or small reminders if needed.
Knock Knock actually has several different lists, memo pads, stationery sets, and organizational tools with unusual themes, so this would be a neat place to order a few Christmas gifts from when you’re picking up your own paper mousepad. Shipping is free on orders of $50 or more.
