For your toolbox - Chalkboard Tape

I was in Lowes last week and stumbled upon something interesting - chalkboard tape! Maybe I'm late to the game, but this stuff is awesome! What a great thing to add to your DIY toolbox! You can skip the drying time and permanence factor with this little product and jump right on over to using it around your house. Here are 4 ideas to get you started! 

Gift Wrapping

I'm always scrambling around my house to find gift wrapping materials in decent shape, and rarely do I have cute ribbon on hand. Chalkboard tape saves the day! I wrapped this gift with leftover christmas paper and cut out a ribbon and bow to apply to the box. Then I scribbled a quick design to make it look intentional .

Weekly Meal Plan or To-Do List

I'm trying to get better about keeping  a calendar and having a weekly meal plan. The most simple way to keep myself on track is to write everything down! I used a clipboard I had in our office and cut out 5 equal length strips of chalkboard tape. I lined them up on top of each other to create '5 days'. Then I used chalk to write out each meal for the week. It helps my shopping list and and also helps my husband know what to expect.

Labels (DUH)

I'll leave you with the most obvious, but worth mentioning, use for chalkboard tape. Labeling! We don't have a printer, but I like to keep things organized. Jotting a quick label down using chalkboard tape makes for an easy fix!
