A Bit of Organization

A few weeks ago, I decided I had had enough of the mess all over my refrigerator. You know how it goes...a random collection of magnets, children's artwork, doctor appointment reminders, random photos...everything gets put on the fridge. So after seeing this idea on Pinterest, I decided to go for it!

All it took was a package of 4 12"x12" cork board squares, extra adhesive, some push pins and the inside of 2 of my kitchen cabinets!

At JoAnns, I had the option of the normal cork board (light brown) or this darker color. The squares measured 12"x12" which were a tad too long to be stacked on top of each other and still fit. A quick measurement and cut with a utility knife, and I had a perfect fit! The package of cork board does come with self adhesive, but it was nowhere near strong enough. I don't know how many times the cork sheets fell off before I got around to getting better adhesive. All I got was a small roll of double sided, wall safe, adhesive from Wal-Mart. It's worked like a charm!

I added some adorable pushpins from Sideproject Designs on Etsy, and started transferring everything from my fridge to the inside of my cupboard.
I love it! And my refrigerator is so much happier! This particular cupboard is right next to the fridge and the phone. So, all of the emergency numbers and information for babysitters (including instructions for child/infant CPR and the Heimlich maneuver) is right there near the phone.
Now to get the rest of the house so organized!

Looks great! What a great idea to help contain some of the clutter the frig tends to attract!
