I took a gander through a dollar store to see what I could find for budgets squeezed as tightly as possible, yet brains flowing with ideas. I found a goldmine!
If you can’t afford fancy Moleskin(TM) notebooks and mechanical pencils and portable computing devices, here are a few of my discoveries at the dollar store. Ironically, some of the items in the dollar store cost more than a dollar, but not much more. For a few dollars you can get multiples of these small clipboards, white boards, cork boards, plastic folders, and the like…enough to nicely separate your ideas and all the details about each idea, so that you can organize them when you are ready to tackle one idea at a time.

Challenge to you: Take some scrap paper (or an inexpensive notebook) and go to your local dollar store. Just wander the aisles awhile. Make notes about the items you find that you can use – sometimes creatively – to capture and organize your ideas. I give you all sorts of ideas (pun intended) in my programs available to you at IdeaSuccessNetwork.com for what to use and how to use them effectively.
