[Day 2] Top of Fridge: Kitchen Clutter Clear Out

Do you have clutter on the top of your fridge?  It’s really hard not to use that space for storage clutter.  It’s a flat surface, out of the way, and perfect for the stuff you can’t fit into a cabinet.


Unfortunately, once we put stuff up there, we tend to forget about it.   Has this happened in your kitchen?  Follow the steps below and clear out the clutter.

  • Remove everything from the top of your fridge.
  • Toss stale food and put away things that don’t belong up there (toys, clothing, trash, papers).
  • Wipe the surface; there will probably be a thick layer of kitchen grease and grime.
  • Be selective when you put items back.  Don’t let the clutter return.
  • Use baskets or bins to contain items.
  • Repeat this process a couple times a year.


You may find some treasures while clearing the clutter off the top of your fridge.  What is the most unusual item you found?
