WFMW - Tidy Refrigerator

We've got three budding little artists in our house. Their art project production would shame any professional artists. We also have several lists that keep our family happenings, well, happening (menu plan, grocery list, etc.) All of these things must be displayed on the fridge. Yes, it is law that drawings by your five year old, scribbles by your two year old, Sunday School papers, grocery lists and whatnot grace your fridge. This used to bug me until I found these little treasures.

These are chrome plated magnet clips, available at any office supply store. I have three on the freezer door and two on the side of the fridge (which is hidden). One clip for Polly Art or papers. One clip for Tigger Art or papers. One clip for things Mommy needs. If the clips are too full, it's time to purge something. It keeps the fridge looking tidy, without too many novelty magnets and these things are strong

The bottom of the fridge (aka, kid level) is another story, what with its alphabet stickers (uppercase and lowercase), Leap Frog barnyard animals... Hey, we are homeschoolers after all! So, magnet clips work for me. Find tons of great WFM ideas at Rocks in my Dryer.

Great idea! I like the clean and tidy look, the uncluttered. Thanks for sharing.

I love strong magnets, I leave one on my (metal) milk box incase I'm not home/available when the milkman comes, I'll clip his check or a change order to it. if I'm not going to be home I'll stick it to the inside of the lid, but if I'm home, the boys get the milk and the milkman never sees the inside of the milkbox. so I leave it on top.

Just found you through WFMW--

How long have you been homeschooling? your girls look so young! (And look near mine in age-- I've got three from 1-4ys old) We plan to start next fall and will be "second generation" too.

Was it an automatic choice b/c you did it growing up? How was starting the first time?

Thanks for the comments! As for homeschooling, my oldest is 5 1/2 (going on 25!). As far as I'm concerned we've always homeschooled. We did start Saxon Math last fall and Jessie Wise's reading program this spring. So far, so good!

I'll try to think some more and make a more complete post about my homeschooling philosophy soon.
