I had been admiring The Fridge File (pictured above) as I thought it would be a wonderful way to get rid of the pesky papers that always seem to pile up on the table. But I was finding it difficult to buy one, since I’m in Canada!
I thought I could easily make one myself and save some money while I was at it! (The Fridge File is normally $13) Here’s my version:
I bought three file folders (with flaps) from Walmart, then used some hot glue to hold them together in a staggered position. My Mom happened to have a long magnet strip that I cut up then hot glued to the back. Finally I added three labels, my name, my husband’s name and Coupons. Obviously my husband and I get our own folder and the Coupon one is for restaurant coupons, Canadian Tire money, gift cards…etc!
I think it will work great for the papers we need to access on a frequent basis! Especially for less then $6!
I’m thinking of calling mine the “Dryer File” as it’s stuck to the side of our dryer since our fridge is only apartment sized. 🙂
