Organizing Obsession: Clipboards

Since my days back in politics, I have loved a clipboard. There is something about a clipboard that just means business.

Now in my organizing career, I use my trusty clipboard daily while working with clients to keep our notes and checklists all in one place during a session. I couldn’t live without it.

Clipboards are a creative organizing tool when hung on the wall like in the photos above. How about using clipboards to hold:

  • Client samples and notes in an office
  • Kids’ artwork so it can be easily rotated
  • Important papers for family members (Everyone gets their own!)
  • Photos in your home

If you’re in the market for a clipboard, two of my favorite sites are Macbeth for patterned options and 2 Preppy Girls for personalized options. But of course, Etsy has unlimited designs, so you’re sure to find one you love.
