There is this awesome paint made by Rust-Oleum, where you can turn wood, metal and other surfaces into a dry erase board; most people use this for their kids room, or their home office. The paint allows you to turn the smallest of objects, or large ones, into a canvas for those smelly markers we love to use. Be crafty by turning a paper sized part of your desk into a “sketch pad”. Or, if you have more room on your desk you’re willing to sacrifice cover a bigger portion for big sketches and mind maps for class.
The price for the paint is about a half tank of gas, maybe less, but the outcome is pretty amazing. Consider switching up how you write out your ideas or topics for class.
