Thanks to our fridge breaking down, we made an unplanned appliance purchase last weekend. Our fridge was not super old, but not super new by any means. You can see the old fridge from this post about fridge organization. (Scroll down to see mine – a white double-door fridge.) As you will see from the photo, I used the outside of the fridge for pictures, reminders, lists, calendars, menus, etc. (Admittedly, the outside qualified as visual clutter, so it will be nice to have that out of the kitchen…)
As much as I love our new [stainless] fridge, it is not magnetic. Now I need to figure out what to do with all of the stuff that used to be displayed/stored on the fridge. I need help! I put everything together in a tray (that is normally used for when we eat in the living room) to keep it together…here it is:
The photos and wedding/birth announcements are things that I looked at (ENJOY) the most. The two things that hold my sharpies and other pens and paper is probably the thing that I USE the most. Having it on the outside of the fridge (it was on the side) was super convenient because we are always using pens and paper for reminders and lists. Now what do I do?
Any ideas on how to store these items to still be super convenient – aside from putting them on the counter? (I loved that having them on the side of the fridge kept the clutter off the counter.) Here is where it WOULD go if it could…
Any suggestions? I am really anxious to get this tray off the counter, but I need to figure out where everything will go first
