Households often use their fridges as noticeboards, sticking up photos, memos, invitations and pictures drawn by children.

Do you have many magnets and things posted on your fridge, or do you rather keep your fridge free of clutter?

I'm collecting magnets from places we visit. I am hoping there will be no space left on the fridge one day.
I do the same. Good way to know where I've been and they're not that expensive - maybe $4-5, and small to bring back!

My fridge is covered with magnets, usually souvenirs from places I've been.
I have a ton of magnets on my fridge, and lots of papers stuck under them with appointment dates.
I have it clear for now, don't know how would it look like in next few years.

Totally clutter free...for me!

I really hate the look of a fridge with things on them, makes me feel 'messy'.
I know what you mean, but I still keep things on the fridge. Otherwise the mess would be on the bench, lol.

Our fridge doesn't have a metal door, so we can't stick any magnets on it! I do have several of my son's paintings blu-tacked to it though. I love having his drawings up as it makes the kitchen look cosy and homely.
We used to try and get a magnet from every place we visited! So we have HEAPS of magnets on our fridge and heaps that are not on our fridge!
I have about two magnets as magnets do not stick to my stainless steel, dull finish.

This is actually good or else I would have it covered in things, and I really do not like this cluttered look.

I do have some on my freezer, which is white, and which is in my garage.

yes, have some , even a compass to tell me which way is north. the grandchildren like to give them to me for their drawings or just to look at

I don't really like anything on the fridge. It gets in the way of cleaning. My daughter has lots of magnets inter alia on her fridge which is white. She has little children and I always think it looks tacky, unclean, particularly in summer. The fridge needs to be clean and easy to clean -after all it is the biggest food container that you have. Use some blutack on the walls for the things that kids bring home from school (full of all that bacteria etc.).
I've an 'owl' & a 'Cappucino' as magnets, the rest are those magnetised 'labels' from business'. My whole collection takes up one row at top of fridge!

The rest of fridge front is clear!
I have just bought a new fridge so am trying to keep it pristine and magnet-free, for the time being anyway. My old fridge, however, had heaps of magnets from travels all round the world. Also had a few magnetised photographs of family and friends.
I like that idea, norma - having magnets from travels is cool.

Yes Vee - went through a big phase of collecting magnets wherever I went, some really interesting ones too from overseas particularly. It was an easy memoir of a holiday and very small to put in your luggage. One of my favourites was "The Alamo" magnet - I was a big western fan when I was young. The problem is getting them off the fridge.Once they have been on for a while they stay stuck hard.
by norma
Oh, that doesn't sound good, lol. I take it you have to pry them free?
by Vee
Yep Vee, and believe me it's a job and a half. Have had the new fridge for a couple of months and still pristine, ie without magnets. How long that will last who knows?
by norma
Oooh I looooove me a magnet! However, I recently did a magnet purge and only have a few now. I replaced them with slogans to help me keep on the straight and narrow re junk food etc.

YES, I do love my...60 or so fridge magnets from all of our/s travels, plus other ones I've got on there as well. Yes, they do look very messy, with very old bits of paper under them There's even a baby photo, sent from a Perth friend, & I'm guessing he'll be starting high school next year. (No date on the back of the photo!) I really must clean up the front of our fridge. My husband even mentioned last week, how messy it was looking! (Me thinking, "If only I could leave these AA questions alone!!!)
by Miro
Haha! AA is so much fun. The fridge can wait.
