Tuesday’s Tip: Upgrade your office for under $15

An easy way to increase your productivity is to get your thoughts out of your head and written down. According to Lifehack, it can even change your life. There are lots of options, including tools like Evernote and low-tech options like pads of paper. My personal favorite is a giant whiteboard. This is especially helpful when thinking through the flow of a new Infusionsoft campaign or prepping for a sales call.

Unfortunately, big whiteboards are expensive. A large board ranges from about $150 to over $500 on Amazon. But with a trip to your local home improvement store you can get a functional whiteboard for less than $15.

Nearly all home improvement stores (such as Lowe’s and Home Depot) sell large 8 foot by 4 foot panel boards. These boards are coated with white acrylic that works well with dry erase markers. You’ll have to clean your board a bit more often than if you bought a real whiteboard, but you’ll also save hundreds of dollars. If you have the space, you may even want to buy two or three!
