Task lists are great but sometimes you want a reminder that's right in front of your face to be absolutely certain you don't forget something on the way to the office. Use a dry erase marker to leave yourself a mirror-note.
Lifehacker reader ayellen shared a great, if unconventional, use for dry-erase markers:
I write my to-do list on my mirror. This way, every time I walk by the mirror, I see what I have to do. And the only thing more satisfying than crossing something off a to-do list is being able to watch yourself smile while doing it.
We tested the trick out by writing on a bathroom mirror — see above — and expanding it by writing on a glass door. If you're short a glass door to write on you'll just have to go the traditional route and stick a small dry-erase board on the door.
Have a clever trick for jogging your memory — especially during rushed mornings? Let's hear about it in the comments. Thanks ayellen!
