Windshield notepad

When I'm driving, it seems that I always think of things that need doing or supplies that need picking up at the shop. And now that I have an accursed cellular phone in my truck, people always are calling me, and I find that I need to write down even more stuff.

I'm left-handed, so those suction-cup notepads stuck on the windshield to the right of the steering wheel don't do me much good. And there's really no room to put one on the left side of the steering wheel.

Recently, I bought some dry-erase markers, the kind that people who run seminars use to list important thoughts on glossy white presentation boards. With one of these markers, I can jot notes to myself right on the windshield. When the task is accomplished, I can rub away the words with the heel of my hand.
