Tackle It Tuesday - The Attack of the Fridge Door!!!

Tackle It Tuesday Meme


Wedding invitations, doctor’s appointment card, birthday invitation, CVS receipt, munchkin’s artwork, Tot-Lok magnets, random photo magnets, grocery list, and other random magnets: What my fridge looks like on a good day! A magnetic fridge provides you with a place to display and organize papers – the key word there is organize! My fridge looks like a tornado came through and threw-up!

Today I will tackle this fridge door! I will throw away the invitations of events that have already passed, old receipts, and the hodgepodge of other unnecessary random things!

I’ve done some searching and have found some items that will help my fridge door become and stay more organized. A start with any fridge door organization is to have the proper tools – magnets! Currently I have a random assortment of magnets. From my college days (beer openers) to the various calendar magnets sent by local real estate agents to the 10 local pizzerias! This abundance of magnets is hurting me! I’ll weed out the real estate agent calendar, keep just one. I’ll toss the phone numbers to the pizza places we hate!

I’ve ordered some new magnets (yippee!) to help give a cleaner, more unified look!

Another item that I CAN’T WAIT to use is a Real Simple organizer.


I found this on Amazon. It looks perfect for my needs. It has lots of compartments to hold papers that would normally cover every inch of the door. It also includes a notepad, perfect for writing up grocery lists and such. I can’t wait for it to arrive!

So is your fridge as sloppy as mine? Do you have a systematic way of organizing your items? Please share!

Next week I’m thinking of the organizing the inside of the fridge ---- Help!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sadly mine is even more sloppy,lol...and I just cleaned it off recently. I was just weeding through all the paperwork hanging there the other day and it's all current, ugh! I should get a paper organizer like that, I'm addicted to buying organizing items,lol.

We have tons of magnets because we always pick one up as a souvenir from our trips! So almost all my magnets on my fridge have meaning :)

Your fridge turned out great!

Oooh I like the Real Simple organizer.

Well I don't put a lot of stuff on our fridge besides the kids' art and a few things. It's the desk in our kitchen that is full of junk. Miscellaneous papers, bills, etc. Ugh.

Great Tackle! It's amazing how things just seem to gravitate to the front of the fridge isn't it?
Happy Tackle day :)
