Signs of the Times

fridge door

So I stand in front of the fridge door. Yes, possibly going for the Pinot Grigio, why do you ask? And I look at this mess of a fridge door. It’s been this way since the boys were little. Bits of their artwork, magnets from trips, notes, pictures. All in a jumble of memories.

I stare at it and think I should straighten it up now. Get rid of the “stuff”. Make it pretty. A few cute things left neatly in place. I’m sure your fridge door looks pretty and decorated, right? Or at least you’ve gotten past this messy artwork/note/picture phase if your kids have moved out.

What to do? What to do?

Heck, I’ll just open the door and pull out the wine. No need to make too many life changes at one time, now is there? :beer:

Right now, mine’s got nothing on it because of our recent move. And know what? I’m kinda linking it this way.
But yes, I think most people’s frig’s look like this.
I’m not sure if I want to put anything on mine at this point. Maybe if I have grandchildren! YIKES!!

My fridge rivals your. I have no plans to declutter its facade. I say, “Enjoy the wine!”

I just took a picture of my fridge the other day, to do a post on it!!! (great minds,and all that shit.) I LOVE to see the people i LOVE everyday. :beer:

Why would you take it off? It’s not a law, LOL. I keep lots of magnets of trips and places I’ve been on my fridge, pics of the kids and all kinds of things. I love a cluttered fridge door.

No life changing decisions at least until AFTER the wine. :rofl:

My fridge looks like that too!

Oh, I would just ponder it for a long while. Don’t do anything rash. Cheers!

My fridge is a jumble of pics, artwork, notes, school calendars, etc., etc. I like it that way. :rofl:

I wouldn’t get in any hurry to change it. When we moved here we tried to keep the fridge clean and pretty. But it’s slowly returning to its cluttered persona.

Are you sure you didn’t sneak into my home and take a pic of my refrigerator? Leave it be till it seriously bothers you.

My kids have been out of the house for years and I still have a messy fridge door – don’t have the heart to clear off all the clutter.

Oh dear, kacey, you definitely need to keep that as is for awhile… in the meantime, maybe you could take up a hobby, like photography… oh, wait…

Well, hang in there!

I try to keep my fridge clear (no little ones so we never had to worry about the artwork) but there are times …. drink the wine and forget about clearing it off.

okay everyone voted for drinking the wine and just pondering the fridge door situation. I can do that… :mrgreen:

looks like a happy fridge door to me 😉

i actually did declutter mine just last week for real estate agents coming through, and to my great surprise, I really like it bare! but I always loved it cluttered too and wasn’t looking forward to having it bare, so clearly I’m just really easily pleased 😆

Yup, way too much thinking. Wine oclock, definately.
