We had a bit of an ongoing problem with food spoilage. I’d go to the farmers markets on a Sunday and buy up big but by Wednesday I’d forgotten what I’d bought and come the following Sunday some of it would be ready to go out in the compost bin. Solution? A blackboard where we list all the fresh food we’ve purchased as well as some dinner ideas and space for a shopping list. After searching around for something suitable (and having next to no luck) we decided to make our own and it was super easy. All it took was a piece of MDF from the hardware store, some blackboard paint, and a piece of wood to hold the chalk.
