On the front of the frig is our dry erase calendars. I use to have a whole month calendar but decided it was just to hard to keep up with a whole month at a time. Now we do two weeks at a time. I also hang any important invites that I need to remember for the calendar on the front also.
On the side of the refrigerator is the main command center. I have two dry erase boards. One is for the grocery list and the other is for the weekly menu. The silver magnet containers hold safety pins, paper clips and binder clips.
In between the two dry erase boards I have a roll of tape I glued magnet strips to and a calculator I did the same with.
Under the dry erase boards is a note pad I made myself, using Kid #5's recycled school papers. Anyone else think the amount of paper work that comes home with an elementary age child is unbelievable??
I also have the school lunch calendar and a magnetic basket to hold pencils, pens, dry erase markers and a pencil sharpener.
Last but not least in my command center are the magnetic boxes I made from some recycled boxes I wrapped in wrapping paper, glued heavy duty magnets on and added labels too. One is for the junk mail that goes int the recycling bin and the other is for the bills that need to be taken car of or shredded.
So here it is just one more time
So far it has been working well for us. I am sure as time goes by I may add to it or take a few things way, we will see :)
