Remember Shelf

3D to-do list.

This shelf and notice board makes it easier to remember all your chores, tasks, and items, especially when heading out the door.

The soft and somewhat flexible knobs allow you to attach items of various sizes and shapes so you'll bring them with you.

The white surface doubles as a whiteboard for messages to yourself or your loved ones, and the slide-knobs allow you to keep track of recurring tasks, items, or chores.

Even the most experienced airline captain has to run through a checklist before departure: this shelf becomes your dumbed-down checklist.

It will save you many trips back inside to pick up forgotten items, turn on the dishwasher, or turn off the TV.

13" x 8"; knob length: 2".

€24.95 (items pictured above on shelf not included).

Lightweight Travel Clothesline

2alttl461r_lg

For the strength to hold all your wet laundry, forget those cute little suction cup clotheslines.

The Flexo-line holds up to 12 pounds of wet clothes thanks to its surgical-grade natural latex rubber tubing which is woven in THREE braids — not the usual two.

Features and Details:

• Holds up to 12 lb of wet clothes without clothespins or hooks

• Three strands of surgical-grade natural latex rubber tubing

• Loops around a doorknob, hook, shower head, or rod

• May be washed in mild soap and water

• With proper care it will last for years

• Will not snag delicate fabrics

• Weight: 1 ounce

$10.50 (underpants et al. not included)
