Kitchen Chalkboards & To Do Lists
Even the most organised minds need little reminders of what needs to be done. Leave a message on a kitchen blackboard or magnetic notepad and you can keep organised with style! We have lots of notepads for you to choose from, with each one bringing its own fun and colourful character. Animal lovers will have lots to get excited about, with magnetic notepads featuring illustrations along their borders of foxes, horses, dogs, chickens and more.
The benefits of a to do list
It is very helpful to keep a to do list not only for productivity but for a sense of peace among all the rushing around of the day. Studies have shown that the brain loves ordered tasks. Psychologists have observed that writing tasks down makes it far easier for us to both remember them and, crucially, to get on and do them. But, perhaps more important than that, scientific studies have also indicated that stress and anxiety levels about work and everyday tasks can drop markedly when we simply make a note of what needs to be done in the day. It is the act of writing them down which tells the brain that things are manageable.
Many of the notepad designs you see here have been created by Little Blue House of Hatley. Their first range began to take shape around 40 years ago, and was focused on the kitchen in the shape of some fun and colourful aprons. The love of all things natural, as well as a general sense of warmth and high spirits, has stayed with them over the decades. This much is evident in this collection. These notepads are not only practical, but they will also light up the kitchen with a sense of joy.
Animal themed magnetic notepads
The designs in this collection can't help but make you smile. Take a look, for instance, at the leisurely otter floating on his back above the to do list space. Or look at the helpful little beaver with pencil in mouth ready to help you with another 'dam list'. These furry creatures are always there to brighten your day when you are getting on top of things with a bit of organisation. The funny puns which accompany the notepad such as 'Making a list and chicken it twice' also make these magnetic to do lists a nice little present for a fellow animal fan.
