I have another awesome way to use dry erase markers! On your washing machine! You think I'm crazy, don't you!? Am I the only person that loads the washing machine with good intentions to take out such-n-so to air dry/ hang dry/ lay flat and totally forget in my rush to throw everything in the dryer?? I do that all the time! Well, today I decided to write it on my washing machine when I loaded the washing machine so I would remember what I needed to look for when I switched the laundry over to the dryer. I got this idea when I saw on etsy the other day, decals to put on the washing machine... like contact paper! It was so cool looking, but it mad me think of dry erase markers. Here's what I put on my washer this morning...

Time for a tip!!
I love dry erase markers. They are one of my secret tools! I don't go shopping very often, especially with all of my kids. But, occasionally, I will run into a store and find something I want to try on. You want to know my secret weapon for fitting rooms with 3 small children!? That's not fair, you had hint. That's right, dry erase markers. Give them over and let them go to town on the mirror. They can draw silly faces on their reflection or I ask them to draw what I have on... It will give you a good couple of minutes to throw your clothes on! I also keep them in our church bag. I just read a tip somewhere yesterday (maybe Parent's magazine?) that said to rip out the pages in those workbooks that cost like $20 for a book of mazes or capital letters... pop each page in a page protector and let them work them with a dry erase marker. Then they can work them over and over again.
