Catching Incoming Items: Tools for Shower Thoughts

by Margaret Lukens, New Leaf + Company

When the water spray hits your face, does your brain go into overdrive? Some people get their very best ideas in the shower. Here are two ideas for catching those “shower thoughts”.

At just 4 ½ by 3 ½ inches, the miniature diver’s slate doesn’t have a lot of real estate, but it’s enough to keep some priceless thoughts from going down the drain. The cost at is about $30.

My thanks to Jeri Dansky and her blog Jeri’s Organizing & Decluttering News for this smart idea.

For the real shower-stall Archimedes, here’s another method. Though cheaper, simpler, and more effective than the dive slate, it is not for the fastidious. In fact, I hesitate to share it. Okay, you’ve pried it out of me: keep a supply of Crayola washable markers in the shower and just write on the shower door.

Got any ideas for capturing shower thoughts? Record them here before they evaporate.
