Organization: Three By Three Magnetic Boards

This Summer, I bought a long, thin white magnetic board with a handful of strong magnets which I mounted above my desk (and new white Imac). It’s a nice little place to tack up business cards and other things that are inspiring. I have a larger Ikea magnetic board for full pages, but the small one is nice so the tiny stuff doesn’t get lost in the shuffle.

The boards are made by Three By Three Seattle and their product line is fantastic; besides long magnetic boards, they make round ones and even heart shaped red magnets! Needless to say, I’m hooked. The quality of this stuff is amazing.

Of course the board can be used in a much less cluttered way than mine; It’s just that I like everything tacked up to mine so much that it’s impossible to declutter.
