That second fridge will be handy, but will also run up the utility bill if it is not used to full capacity.

When I was fridge shopping when buying this house, I found this fridge as a Whirlpool at Lowe's, Maytag at Home Depot, and Kenmore and Whirlpool Gold at Sears. The only thing that they changed was the emblem on the front! There was actually nothing different about the "gold" version at sears except that it was more expensive than the Kenmore version.

We kept a small white board on our old fridge. We used it to build weekly shopping lists and leave notes for each other.

When we bought the new fridge, we got a new white board. It's magnetic but won't stick to the front of the fridge strongly enough. The metal on the doors is curved so the the flat board can't make contact.

I had to fortify the white board with added magnets to get it to stick to the side of the fridge where it now lives.

Not a problem you expect to have with a new fridge.

I'm so glad I can get all my magnets to stick on my fridge.

It's nice to see that there are those that see what's important in life.

I use magnets to hold recipes on the fridge while I'm cooking. Yes, they are important.

A flexible magnetic dry erase white board ??? Do they make one? I'll check China's Alibaba. If it's conceivable, Alibaba will have it. You just need to order a minimum of 1000 units.

We get one every year in the mail from a local funeral home Just stick it on the fridge. It's our daily morbid reminder.

Easy to make. Laminate a stiff piece of paper, stick on some magnet pieces from the magnet tape you can get at Walmart or any craft store, and put on a small piece of stick-on velcro to both your washable marker and the laminated paper.

The front of the fridge is normally magnetic so I can stick all kinds of magnets to it.

I glued some magnetic strips to the white board and it now sticks to the less magnetic side of the fridge.

Caslon, you can also go old-school, and use a little chalkboard. There's also chalkboard paint you can spray on just about anything, like a piece of cardboard, and attach aforsaid pieces of sticky magnet tape to the back and apply to your fridge.
