Fab Find: Wear Your To-Do List

bandsList makers take notes everywhere – on receipts, sticky notes, napkins, envelopes or even on the back of our hands. Anything that can be written on, will be. However all these scrap pieces of paper can be difficult to keep track of.

I’m bringing back “Fab Find” because I found the perfect solution on KnockKnockStuff.com.  Wearable wrist bands! I think they are great for anyone who is constantly losing their lists! Just write on the band, wrap it around your wrist, and voilà—your to-dos are literally at hand. Why not keep a few wrist bands in your bag just in case you need to jot something down?  They cost 6 bucks for 25 bands.
