Tagged: My Refrigerator

I've been tagged by Gayle to take a picture of my refrigerator and tell about one thing on it and one thing inside it...

As you can see, I have nothing on the front of my fridge. I like it this way. I just have an aversion to clutter so I can't bring myself to even display a picture on there. I've never really had a thing for magnets so that's no loss. But, in truth, I do have one thing on my refrigerator...just not on the front. I'll have to take you around to the side to see it...

It's a magnetic writing pad or what we call in the Cooke household, "the list." I'm always saying to Casey, "put it on the list" whenever he asks me to pick something up for him. I can't trust myself to remember everything I need to get (especially at the grocery store) so anytime he runs out of razors or needs a new toothbrush or something like that, he writes it on the list and then when I go to the store, I just grab the top sheet. Of course I also write things on there that I need to remember like toilet paper, a certain kind of cereal and other things I don't always catch when I'm making my grocery list from my weekly menus. It works really well for us and for that reason, it is allowed to remain on the refrigerator...but it will be forever relegated to the side.

And as for one thing inside...I always have milk. Casey must have it for his cereal and I must have it to drink. That's boring, I know, but I just don't have anything fascinating either on or in my refrigerator. Sorry!

Looks like we agree on the "no clutter" rule! :)

Thanks for playing!

Ohhh, you would hate my house! I am clutter queen and NOT proud of it. :( I have been trying to de-clutter the closets this week, but it has only produced more clutter. My hubby can't STAND it! My refrigerator currently has 19 things on it, and that's after I took down a bunch of invitations!

I do not like clutter either but you will notice my fridge is cluttered-- b/c I let the kiddos play with their magnets. It is really fun for them so I don't mind it - it won't be forever. I need to do lists - I just can never get a notepad to stay on the fridge without falling down (off the magnet) b/c it is too heavy - how do you get yours to stay?

About the elevator and giving blood...I looked to see if there were any warnings about that on my follow-up sheet and there weren't. I think I'll mention that to them the next time I give blood!
