I found this How-to video on the Better Homes & Gardens website. Vintage Window = Chalkboard Planner. You could also use this idea for a seating plan at a country style special event (wedding, anniversary, birthday party etc) http://www.bhg.com/videos/m/32071695/vintage-window-chalkboard-planner.htm
"Crap" baskets as the creator calls them... "If I see or collect any one's crap throughout the house, it goes in that person's basket. When they are on their way upstairs, they need to either take their crap or just take the whole basket full of crap with them."
