Do magnets litter your refrigerator door? Dare I ask what kind? Yep. "What kind of magnets?"

What about post-it notes, doctor's appointment cards, or grocery lists?

If I visited your kitchen, would I find treasured crayon art masterpieces worthy of a gallery?

What do you store in your refrigerator that others find odd? I have Easter candy from last year in my freezer.

My ex stored film in our freezer. Did you know you can store film in your freezer well past the expiration date? You need to take it out hours before you load it, though.

Inquiring minds want to know.

    Mary, Fun post...I have a picture of my granddaughters and a program from a small community theater in Montana that used my Chicken Soup story as a reading in their original play.

    You can't find magnets on my fridge door because it's stainless steel and they don't hold well. Bummer, I had lovely ones from all over the world, and had to give them away. So no stickers, no pictures. Hubby is so pleased because it's neat. I hate that unpersonnal neatness.

    Apt. cards, GD's artwork and little love notes, a small calendar, magnets from Greece, France, Spain, Italy, Austria and various spots across the US, phone numbers I can't remember. Had heard about the film in the freezer, but with digital film is going the way of the so many other things that have out-lived their time.

    I used to post everything from kids' artwork to a calender on my fridge, but for some reason I now find it annoying to see all that stuff clutter it. Now I just have one thing--a picture of the grandkids.

    Glad you liked it, Judy. Those are treasures!

    Sorry, Mona. I understand, since I like to put my personal stamp on things in my house. Of course I no longer share my house. A good husband is worth more that a cluttered refrigerator.

    Scarlet, I also make sure appointment cards are on the fridge door. The perfect place for memories.

    Hey, Pam. None of the son's art work?(Just kidding, her son is grown.)

    I have several magnets though I'd sworn I wouldn't litter the surface of my fridge. I have the cover of Black Swan. One that says "we only serve fine wines here. Did you bring any?" And another that says, "When in doubt add more wine."

    I like those, Linda! Good start.

    I have a stainless steel fridge, also, and can't stick a magnet to it.

    Did you realize that when you bought the refrigerator, Joanne? so where do you stick the things that would go on the door?
