Clutter, clutter, clutter, what will I do with you? Clutter seems to pile up everywhere. My office - yikes! The end tables in the Living Room. The stairs leading up to the second floor. My nightstand. Clutter is ineveitable, why freak out over it? Usually I don't.
However, one of the places where I just cannot stand clutter is in the kitchen. I have to have clear countertops, an empty sink, a clean stove. The rest of my home? Not so much. My kitchen? Must, must, must. It's just a thing with me.
One area where I fall short in my kitchen decluttering is my refrigerator. Just look at it. A big, ole' cluttery mess. Is cluttery even a word?
But then I take a closer look:
I see Lizzie's cheer magnet and that cute pic of her with Ozzy the Cat when he was a tiny kitten.
I see my neices and my goddaughter's First Communion pics. My grandmother - I miss her!
The invitation to the Wedding Shower for Lizzie's dance coach - we are so excited about that event!
A sweet thank-you card from my SIL for the beautiful necklace we gave her for her 60th Birthday.
Can't forget that notepad for the neverending grocery list (love The Office!)
The schedule for the Autumn events in our Metroparks.
See that magnet at the bottom? It says "M is for Mom, NOT Maid". Ain't that the truth!!
Here is the other cluttered door of my fridge:
I'm a Braves fan - aren't you?
Another cute cat - hey, we are cat people, what can I say?
We pick up magnets when we travel.
We love the memories from Orlando, Disney, & Cincinnati!
What's that you say? You are in suspense? You just MUST see the side of my fridge?
More magnets for important places like pizza parlors and veterinary offices.
Mmmm...there's that recipe that I printed out for The Farm Chicks Apple Butter.
A sweet note from Kathy at Creative Home Expressions. I won a giveaway on her blog.
Oh, cheerleading. Oh, dance. Oh, cheerleading. Oh, dance.
Where would we be without our cheer & dance monthly calendars?
That's my fridge. That's my constant kitchen clutter.
And you know what? I wouldn't have it any other way!
This is us. This is our life.
It's who and what we love, it's where we've been, and where we have yet to be.
Isn't Life Beautiful?
I am joining Melissa at The Inspired Room for Beautiful Life Friday.
