The dining room whiteboard has a section for kids to leave notes about things they need. If all of your socks have gone missing, you can put "socks" on the whiteboard. If you borrow money to buy something while we're at Target, you need to make a note of it on the whiteboard so I can move money around between our accounts. That kind of thing.
One of my kids does not need any new underwear or towels or boring stuff like that. Do you know what he needs? A Hieronymus Bosch painting for the living room, that's what.
