Last fall when I was hitting the back to school sales to get the few things I didn't have already stock-piled; I discovered Dry Erase Crayons. Not sure how long these gems have been around but I found that they don't smear, are easy to clean off, super vibrant color, & are fun to use minus the awful & strange smell that your typical dry erase marker gives off. Have I mentioned before that I have a SUPER sensitive sniffer? Well these babies are wonderful. I have recently been using them on my Daily To Do list & it makes marking each item off even more fun...especially when it is in beautiful colors.
