The Endless Fridge Debate: To Clutter or Not To Clutter?

A couple of my friends had decided it was time for a new refrigerator. As they became increasingly interested in a particular model, the salesman warned them about its downside — it wasn't magnetic. Downside? They were sold! It now sits, tranquil in their kitchen, with not a party invitation, wallet photo, or dry-erase board in sight. And they couldn't be happier.Personally, I tend to keep my refrigerator door pretty neat and tidy. Usually, all you will find on it is a small calendar for coordinating family schedules and a recent party invitation tucked along the top of the calendar. Just the same, it's very freeing knowing that if I wanted to plaster the door with photos, magazine clippings, and magnets, I could! I don't think I could be content with a non magnetic refrigerator.

Is your fridge door neat and tidy, or cluttered and busy? Would you be able to live without a magnetic refrigerator?
