Boogie Board

Hi friends,

I'm really not one to write reviews about products, but wanted to show you a gift I received recently called a "Boogie Board".  Have you ever heard of them?  It's essentially an electronic version of a magic slate.  You do remember those, right?

I just love it!  It does nothing but let you write on it, then erase.  So simple and easy to use without having to plug in or recharge - yea!  It uses zero power except when erasing the slate.  I know some of you may be laughing at me right now (Jimmy ... I know you are!)

This little board allows me to leave notes for my husband in the morning, before I leave for work, or jot down reminders.  It comes with a stylus or you can even use your fingernail to write on it.

The erase feature is neat.  All you do is push a button and the LCD screen "wipes" clean.  I have it hanging in the kitchen where hubby can see it.

Just think of all the paper I am saving!  Well, not really since I make cards and have tons of cardstock so we won't go there.  I do recommend if you purchase one from Brookstone be sure to buy the one with the replaceable batteries.

Thank you for spending a few minutes with me today.

Well that's a neat gift Donna - I liked the part about using it to leave your hubby notes...his honeydo list?
There are so many ways to save paper except for cards and letter writing, we have to keep these alive.

What a weird thing! We bet our cats would love to leave pawprints on that....

This looks really really neat!! I LOVE new gadgets!! I was super excited about an awesome fridge calendar I recieved for Christmas. It doesn't take much to please me. I'll have to give this a try. A good idea for Gavin's chor list...
