I am a genius.

by Megan

As you can see, I’m not much of a “magnet” kind of girl:

I don’t like the front of my fridge to be messy, and I like having things that match my kitchen decor. Functionality is also good. I have a shopping list notepad that I use regularly, the big magnet actually flips up to reveal a list of phone numbers for babysitters, and the circles are buttons that I made into magnets, with colors that match my kitchen, for times when I do need to post something on my fridge. I’m not entirely heartless. I do put up my kids’ artwork from time to time!

But after having our heater fixed the other day, our repair guy gave me this big ugly calendar magnet with his information on it. He’s a nice guy who did a great job (fixed our ac in the summer and our heat in the winter- yes we were that lucky this year), and I do want to keep his information handy, but I didn’t want to compromise the beauty of my uncluttered fridge appearance.

Then a stroke of genius hit! The heater must be magnetic, right?!

BAM! Slapped that baby onto the heater itself, so now his information is not only handy, but it’s right in the place where I would need it and not on my fridge!

Okay, so maybe other people already do this? I don’t know. But it was pure elation when that magnet stuck onto the heater. What can I say, I have a love for organizing!

What do you think? Genius or something everyone already does?

I love the front of your fridge, mine is a hosposh of coupons, to do lists etc.

This IS a genius idea – but I would add some fun magnets to the heater, too….

Good idea. You could also cut off the calendar.

I was already doing this and I hate magnets to be on the front of my fridge
