Refrigerator Magnets

Refrigerator magnets are almost a necessity for moms, dads, uncles, aunts and cousins. For me, refrigerator magnets bring back memories of art class in first grade. I recall painting a very shoddy horse with water colors one afternoon in art class. I was quite proud of my accomplishment. To reward my artistic expression, my parents proudly secured this drawing to the refrigerator with a very generic looking refrigerator magnet.

The refrigerator is one of the most looked at pieces of furniture in the house. It represents an opportunity for parents and family to express their love for their children, siblings, nephews and nieces. My refrigerator is blanketed with pictures from the holidays and my cousin's drawings. It's my way of acknowledging and supporting my family. It also reminds me to keep in touch with them.

Refrigerator Magnets Should Be Strong

How many of you have weak refrigerator magnets that can barely hold up a Polaroid picture? This is frustrating. I get a little irritated when I magnetize one of my cousin's drawings to the refrigerator and find it on the floor the next morning. When you buy a refrigerator magnet, make sure it's strong, like neodymium magnets; otherwise, you will find your pictures and drawings on the dirty kitchen floor.

Actually, my kitchen floor is rather clean, but I think you get my point. If you place a premium on acknowledging your loved ones, then purchase a product that's in line with how strongly you feel. The last thing I want is for my cousin to visit me and discover his drawing mingling with the tiles on my kitchen floor. He's only four years old, but he can give a guilt trip better than anyone I know.
