The first time I heard about a vision board was at a blog conference. I was having a hard time discovering what passion was driving me to write my blog. She suggested creating a visual representation of the things that make me happy, feel inspired, and motivated. Since the conference, I have taken this idea to the family level. It helps our family connect in a fun and creative way to share our goals and dreams, as well as accomplishments.
What is a Besso Board?
A Besso Board is a combination whiteboard and cork board that can be used for home or office in multiple ways. The board measures 36″ x 24″, equally divided. Along with the board, you receive and easy-to-hang kit (including anchors), a pen tray, set of thumbtacks/push pins, two dry erase markers, magnets, and dry eraser.
The whiteboard side has an anti-scratch coating that allows for smooth writing and cleanly erases. It’s also magnetized to hold notes that you don’t want to put a pin hole in on the cork side.
The pinboard side is made of self-healing cork which is designed to withstand countless push pins or thumb tacks and pins. It will also hold sticky memo notes!
Our Family Vision
For 2019, our family has numerous goals including growing my blog for added income, sticking to a healthier meal plan, staying organized, and taking a fun vacation or two. By planning our meals and noting it on the board, I am reminded to thaw meat in advance and do any prep work to make dinner night easier.
I also like to keep a running list of groceries that we go through during the week. As soon as we run out of something, it’s added to the list so I don’t have to try and guess what is needed at the grocery store. I can also pin coupons on the cork side and avoid forgetting where I put them.
The Besso Board helps you save money!
Planning has saved us a lot of money; but after moving, we let bad habits creep in. One of the worst was forgetting to thaw meat for supper and making a quick stop for a meal instead. Now we are back on track with eating healthier, pre-planned meals and avoid eating out.
To encourage our entire family to use our Besso Board, we have our boys participating by adding their own notes to keep on track of sporting events, fundraisers, school projects, etc. Have you had your kids tell you about a school project that they needed a poster board for last minute? As soon as my boys get home from school, if they have a project announced, they’ll add the supplies needed to a list and pin it on the board with the grocery list.
Visualize vacations, special events, + more!
Our family is planning on taking a vacation this year; however, we haven’t completely decided where we would all like to go. As we come up with ideas, we can place pictures on the board with hopes that one will stand out more than the others.
If you’re getting married or planning a birthday party, use the whiteboard to write down resources you want to check out and pin inspirational pictures to the cork side. You can keep track of what you’ve ordered to make sure you have everything needed by your deadline!
However you use the Besso Boards, you’re sure to quickly discover an assortment of benefits. In a home environment, we consider it our hub. It keeps our entire family on the same page, saves us time, and money! At the office, the board is great for organizing current projects, schedules, and more.
