Whiteboard

Hello everyone,
I'm looking for some advice on where to find a whiteboard at a good price. On a lot of the garage gym videos that I've seen -- they talk about getting large (4ftx8ft) boards for less than 20$ ... but never mention WHERE they buy them

My friend and I are beginning to gather equipment for a garage gym and would love to get a board to write goals/workouts out

Any info would be great -- Thanks in advance!

Yes, its a good substitue. A lot of boxes I've seen use it. The just use liquid nails or epoxy and throw it up on the wall.

Re: Whiteboard

Another option, and one that I've used, is to find an office sale or surplus sales from large companies. you can get a good sized WB for $10-15.

According to this website (WFS) some brands erase better than others. I'd probably bring a dry erase marker and a rag while at the hardware store to test erase-ability.
