I know the primary use of chalkboard is in the office but I decided to have one in my kitchen. Lately, chalkboards seem to have made a comeback as a decorating tool. Why not really? They’re cute and functional. Many stores have them out in very beautiful frame, and the color palette for the chalkboards themselves is stunning sometimes. If you are thinking you haven’t seen anything like that then you should take a trip to a nearby TJMaxx or Marshall stores.
I got my chalkboard at TJMaxx for $29.99. I like all the colorful chalkboards they have but I like this one the most for both its size and color. Black is simple and sophisticated no matter what, and it goes well with my white kitchen in the apartment (the one I can’t do anything about since I am renting it). I fell in love with it the moment I set eyes on it. I actually saw a similar one with a blue frame a few week backs, and that’s what gave me the idea to buy a chalkboard in the first place.
Anyhow, I want to have the chalkboard in the kitchen because it will help keeping me organized. I am a college student who is taking 8 classes this semester so being organized is very important. I also realize that when I have the meals for a whole week planned out, I am less likely to go for fast-food (not that I go for those very often). Since I planned what I will be cooking for each day, I don’t have to worry about standing in my kitchen at 7 p.m being frustrated because I don’t know what I want for dinner. It happens a lot to people who have to cook every single day- not fun. Another plus of having this chalkboard is it will help me save on my grocery bill. When I know what I am going to cook, I will only have to get the exact ingredients for those meal, and not wasting time and money on something else. Since I put it up, my kitchen looks so much cuter, and I know I won’t have any more headache about what to cook for dinner. So what do you think?
