How did your spring cleaning go this year? Didn't feel like doing it as the temperatures were still cold and there was snow on the ground. Well, if you live on the East Coast like I do, this may have been the case...I know it was for me and many of my friends and family. We only started to wear t-shirts and shorts the past couple of weeks. So, now we are in the midst of spring/summer cleaning, where we are washing everyone's winter clothes to pack and store away until next season, as well as start looking through closets, the attic, garage, etc. for items that can either be donated or sold at an upcoming yard sale.
This year, we will be having a few yards to try and get rid of all the girls' baby stuff, that seems to be filling our spare office in the basement. While it is hard to part with their toys and baby furniture, as it means we are done having children, it is bittersweet in that we know the girls are growing up and we have so many great memories to make with them as they become more and more independent and continue to grow and learn. Can you believe Savannah will be in Kindergarten in the fall, and that Bella will be starting pre-school? Where did the time go? Oh, how I wish I could snuggle them in my arms and hold them close. Instead, I am chasing them around the house or asking them to pick up their toys or clothes - sounds like your house? :-)
But, when it comes to spring/summer cleaning this year and preparing storage containers for storage, donation and yard sale, I will be reaching for Chalk Ink to mark my plastic containers. Have you heard of Chalk Ink before? If not, you will want to pay attention to this post, as these markers are really neat and a must have for families who are looking to get organized this summer, as well as for back-to-school in the fall (sorry, know you don't want to think of this yet).
So, what is Chalk Ink and why do I and so many others love them, including many Fortune 500 companies including Starbucks, Whole Foods, Panera Bread, Peet's Coffee, Trader Joe's and others? To start, "Chalk Ink is the highest quality chalk marker you can find. It works like a paint pen, yet looks like chalk. No dust and no smearing once it's dry. You can use it on any non-porous surface and it wipes off easily with water or Windex."
Chalk Ink is available in either a 6-pack great white or 8-pack classic color set. The classic color set, which I was sent to review retails for only $35.99, which is a steal if you ask me.
Chalk Ink helps you color your world while making your mark.
These chalk markers can be used on smooth non-porous surfaces, including glass, metal, plastic, granite, glazed ceramic, as well as Chalk Ink chalkboards, Chalk In wallpaper, Chalk Ink dry erase wallpaper and Chalk Ink chalkboard paper, that you can purchase online at http://www.chalkink.com/default.asp.

As for my husband and I, we constantly find ourselves grabbing one of the eye-catching color Chalk Ink markers to write our daily to-do lists on the bathroom mirror while getting ready, on the counter top like you saw in the above video, or wherever we find a blank space. Once our lists are made, we snap a photo of it and wipe it away. My husband is also getting good at writing on the fridge door what we have run out of, so that I can pick up the next time I go food shopping. This alone makes Chalk Ink a must in our house, as I could never get my husband to leave a note when we would run out something. But, he loves writing with these chalk markers and thinks that it is cool how they can wipe off for a fresh start. :-)
The video above also showed how Chalk Ink are great for wedding and birth announcements. I also see them coming in handy to celebrate service men and women returning home this year as well as congratulate a recent high school or college grad by creating fun, colorful signs for the special occasion. How will you use Chalk Ink? Get creative and have fun with these cool chalk markers. You may even find yourself doodling along with the kids, as they are just so much fun to use. Or, finally remember your daily lists once you jot them down in plain sight. I can't wait to hear how you and your family use Chalk Ink markers. Be sure to share about these chalk markers with family and friends, and again when back-to-school shopping begins. I will definitely be sending Savannah into school with these for the teacher to use. :-)
