Here are 8 things to write on instead of paper!
1. Your hands
The best part about writing notes on your hand is that it sometimes will transfer to your face while you’re sleeping. Double the reminder!
2. Your abs
Because sometimes you don’t want to write a sad poem on your hands where everyone can read it.
3. Your buddy’s face
The forehead works particularly well, as it is typically the firmest part of the face.
4. Your desk
For extra permanence, use a knife. Your boss will commend your resourcefulness.
5. Your jeans
Because we are all 16 year old girls at heart.
6. Your shoes
Only acceptable if you wear Chuck Taylors and really really need to record your favorite song lyrics on them.
7. Your phone
A permanent marker works best on gorilla glass.
8. That dirty car window in your parking lot
Clean it and then purchase some glass etching cream.
