At only 5 ft 2 & 3/4" I can't see the top of my fridge. One time, one of our very tall friends was over for supper and I realized his head stood higher than my refrigerator. I said to him, somewhat embarrassed, "You can probably tell it's been a long time since I've cleaned the top of my fridge." To which he answered, "It's been a long time since ANYBODY has cleaned the top of their fridge!"
Like this picture.
To be fair to myself, most of the stuff up here was crafty items that I didn't want my four year old getting into. But since I have been reorganizing my cupboards I had some some space freed up, so it was all safely put away. Also, do you notice another pen that escaped my Pen Gathering?
It was time for a clean sweep! Everything got put away in proper spots, and the grime wiped away. This was one of the quickest declutters yet!
My goal now is never to put anything on top of my fridge. It looks too cluttery, and also blocks the cabinet doors. So, if you're ever over at my house, and see something on the top of of there....give me the shakey fist!
