I never thought I'd be able to have a magnetic dry erase board in my office cubicle. That was until I discovered the Officemate Verticalmate Magnetic Dry Erase Board while I was searching online for one that would hang in my cubicle. (Don't miss the YouTube video below of me hanging it in my office cubicle.)
When I was a manager a few years ago and had my own office with a locking door and a window that opened to let in much welcomed fresh air, I also had a dry erase board. But, since I have been relegated to an office cubicle I didn't think I would be able to find one that I could hang in that space. But the Officemate Verticalmate Magnetic Dry Erase Board makes my life a lot better in my cubicle.
I love making lists! OK, maybe I'm a little bit weird. The reason I love lists is that when I check off the items on a list, I feel as if I am actually accomplishing something and being productive. I distinctly remember my Dad in retirement keeping a list of things that he wanted to accomplish each day and this would also be a record of what he actually got done. I certainly take after him when it comes to lists. I need to know that I am getting things done or I don't feel that my efforts that day have been worthwhile.
This Officemate Verticalmate Magnetic Dry Erase Board is pretty much made for the fabric of a cubicle wall but it also has the ability to be hung on screws in a conventional office with plaster walls but I used it in my cubicle. Please check out the YouTube video I created showing me unwrapping it and eventually hanging it in my cubicle. Note I use my Hanging Pencil Cup to hold my dry erase markers. It's the perfect accessory for this dry erase board.

Don't think that you have to be a second class citizen in an office cubicle. You too can have a really important magnetic dry erase board in your own office cubicle. I use mine every day and I do think it has helped me stay on track with what I need to work on each day. I also love crossing off the items I get completed before the end of each day.

After I wrote this article I couldn't really find any good quality markers at work so I decided to look for some on the web. I found this Quartet 2 in 1 Marker Starter Kit that comes with double-sided markers, an eraser, and a dry erase cleaner solution. The double-sided dry erase markers allow you to write with a chisel point or a fine point. This is a quality set for a reasonable price.
