Tracking your family’s schedules, let alone your own, isn’t a small task. There’s not one person who can keep mental notes on where everyone is and manage every appointment they have on their own, but there are some quick and easy tools you can introduce into your life to make it a cinch. Whether at home or at the office, one of the best things you can do to save your sanity is to install a whiteboard at your desk or wherever you need to see it most so you can keep tabs on to-dos, grocery lists, and important dates at a quick glance.
The best part about most whiteboards is that they use dry-erase markers so you can easily erase and start over if you mess up. Plus, by not using paper, you’re also helping out the earth a bit, so it’s also an eco-friendly decision you can feel good about. So whether you need a whiteboard to write a quote of the day or to track important reminders, there’s really nothing one of these can’t help you keep track of. Below, we’ve rounded up the best whiteboards to help you out with scheduling.
