What's on top of your fridge? - Page 4

post #61 of 76
A cute radio and 3 wooden trays that we use daily.

The wine rack, temporarily. Soon we're having a built-in unit made for the kitchen and it'll have an integrated wine rack so there'll be nothing on top of the fridge.

A cabinet. In that - nothing. I'm 5'2", I can't even SEE in the cabinet let alone reach it.

Ditto. 5'4" though.

A flower pot that used to have a plant since dead, make that 2 pots minus dead plants...a basket with misc. paperwork, my food processor, a decanter, and a print out of exercises that I put up there for easy access and haven't used since...

The microwave, a giant canning pot and an Ikea file box for all of DH's pocket contents that I find all over the house.

Before I moved the microwave there it was a disaster.
Now there's no room for junk on top of the fridge, and we gained two extra feet of counter space.

3 empty egg cartons that will go back to the egg people when we go get more

We actually have a cabinet directly over the fridge, so the egg cartons are blocking the doors to that cabinet right now. That cabinet holds all the kitchen stuff we rarely use, but aren't ready to get rid of yet.

Bezark, how do you use the microwave when it is so high up though? I have to stretch to reach the top of my fridge, and we use the microwave for a lot of cooking, not just reheating, so it wouldn't work. Sounds like a good idea if it works for you though!

Seeing this thread every day is making me think I really need to clean the top of the fridges soon. I have one upstairs and one downstairs, plus a small one under the house, but that one is more DH's domain.

I keep cleaners that i don't want DD to be able to touch (windex, dishwasher powder), my digital kitchen scales and an empty paper towel roll hjolder.

I should move the roll to the basement which is certainly NOT decluttered, LOL

I don't use it very much.
When I do need to use it, however, I just kick over the step stool we keep in the kitchen for DS.

Also, because I keep the box and the pot behind the microwave, the microwave is pushed to the very front of the fridge so it's really not too bad.
For something like soup that could slosh and boil me, of course I use the step stool, but for something like a plate of dry chicken nuggets, I can usually manage on my own.

Nothing on top of my fridge... but like SAHDS I have a cabinet over the fridge in which I keep a few large platters.

3 airtight containers we use for cereal, a large jug of pretzels, my tea bin, the "medicine" bin, and assorted vitamins/suppelments. I know there is other stuff lurking behind all that, but it's all safely contained by the aforementioned fortress of stuff we actually use.....now, what's _on_my fridge is something I really need to work on

Our fridge is in a cabinet, with a cupboard on top. We keep booze in that cupboard.

I only read a couple of comments but I'll answer the original question: nothing.
There used to be some clutter collection on top - it's a free-standing refridgerator, no cabinets on top or at the sides. After looking at this junk for a couple of months I decided that it needed to go. Some things got a new home but most of them just left the house.

The refrigerator in my kitchen is built in so no storing junk on top of it. The one in the laundry room(have two because they are small European sized ) has my blender, rice cooker, and huge bin of rice on top.
