Shopping List Magnets....

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

I had one of those "I could really do with something that...." moments this morning when I was writing my shopping list, usually when I have those moments they end with ".... I know! I'll just make it!" which is how nearly all of my products start. I get so sick of writing lists for the weekly shop that fall off the fridge or get lost in my bag (which mainly consists of scraps of paper, so you can see why more lists would get lost) so I thought why not make something that solves this problem for me?

Enter my new and rather special magnetised shopping list cover! It sits on the fridge nicely, and when you go to pull it out of your bag at the supermarket, you can actually find it and have something pretty in your hands. The paper I made up with scrap paper and it tucks neatly inside — so a great way to recycle things around the house. It's got the little elastic loops for your pen or pencil (mine are slightly too large for this pen, but it's my favourite pen for lists) and closes with a little button and ribbon.

I'm thinking about making these for the shop and the markets. Would you want one? Would you use it? Do you know someone who might like one? I'd love the feedback! I would have them with short pencils inside, I love a sharp pencil! In the meantime I'm going to make a couple more and I'll figure out a really good price and might even give one away at some stage...

I like that the magnet is covered, I don't put magnets on my fridge as a rule as they always end up scratching the surface (yes I am anal) but that this is a covered magnet is a brilliant solution!

Its a good one! (idea)
So much better than carrying around a scrap piece of paper - that has been known to get lost!
