This is my new system, inspired by one of Harry's christmas presents to me (you know, the one with the Orla Kiely bag). She gave me three little blackboard hearts with a peg and magnet on the back. I have hung this one in the kitchen, on the knife rack and pegged some sheets of scrap paper underneath.
I have a tendency to arrive at the supermarket and then berate myself for not having taken a list. I then usually phone home to see what we need. Yes, I know this is not domestic goddess behaviour.
So this is where my 'Out of...' heart comes in. Throughout the week when I realise we're close to running out of something I'll put it on the list, and then when it is time to hit the shops I'll just grab the list. I know this will only capture the essentials we're out of, but those items give me most headache when I come back and realise I've forgotten. Obviously this system is in its infancy........I'll report back!
Any ideas for the other two hearts?
