Whiteboard + Easel LOVE IT!!!

Well I love whiteboards in general. I find them perfect for quick brainstorming, making ongoing lists and ToDos, mindmapping, and just general catch-alls for information and planning. I have one on my wall at work, but at home there is really no place to have a permanent board. Besides not having an attractive place to mount one the wall, I rarely work in the same room twice. This is where the combination of the whiteboard and an easel comes in.

Having a small, portable easel to set up a whiteboard is probably the handiest thing I have come across in a quite some time. No matter where I am (even out on the patio) I can set up the white board and get to work generating ideas or mapping our a project. Not only is it portable but there are other convenient properties. For instance you aren’t stuck with one format to work with. Mindmapping works best in landscape for me, but if I want to make a list, I can just flip the board around and, voila, instant portrait format. Not just format, but size. I have several whiteboards from large to small. I can swap them out as needed. And several whiteboards plus several easels makes a temporary brainstorming nest!

One tip, I found that small, portable, folding easels are quite a bit cheaper from an art supply store than from an office store.

BTW you can expect the next few posts to concern whiteboard hacks.
