Are You Obsessed With Pretty And Fun Fridge Magnets?

Aug 7, 2008
Have you ever been to someone's home and taken a look at their fridge magnets and wondered, "What are they thinking?" Do people wonder that about you? People tend to collect refrigerator magnets without even realizing it.

Promotional refrigerator magnets are probably what start your collections. You get promotional fridge magnets from the pizza place or in the mail and they go right on your fridges. Good marketers know that most people don't throw away promotional fridge magnets because they could come in handy to hold up the kids' latest artwork or your appointment card for that dental appointment in six months.

The refrigerator is one of the few places that you know you will look at several times a day. This is the reason that you hang reminders on the fridge that you know you would forget otherwise. The other place you are sure to be each day is the bathroom and in front of the television or computer. It doesn't make sense to hang things off of the television because it will get in the way of your view. Everybody knows that magnets cannot be near the computer, so that's out. And you might need to use the bathroom mirror every so often, so you don't want to hang a bunch of stuff on it.

Once you have a few promotional fridge magnets up, you then decide that the fridge looks cluttered with all of those advertisements. Then you start to look for fun and pretty refrigerator magnets to adorn the fridges with and offset the billboard look. Now your collections have become a habit, or even an obsession. You look for fun fridge adornments everywhere you go. You can find them at the grocery store or the dollar store. Some gas station quickie marts have pretty fridge magnets you can buy, too.

Many people even trade fridge magnets with their friends. This kind of activity can make the hobby even more fun. If you get tired of your fridge adornments then you can take them to your circle of magnet obsessed friends and trade for their pretty fridge magnets. You might find this hard to believe, but people have been known to make a party out of refrigerator magnet trading. You can do it, too. Invite several friends over for drinks and tell them to bring their fun fridge magnets that they are growing tired of and soon you'll each have change the whole look of your fridges.

Even if you're not fridge magnet obsessed, chances are you have more than a couple on your refrigerator right now. Where did they come from? Do they have any special meaning to you or are they promotional fridge magnets with telephone numbers on them that you don't want to lose? You can make use of refrigerator magnets, too. They are easy and inexpensive to order. Send out pretty fridge magnets to promote your business or to announce a new baby. You can bet they will end up adorning many fridges.
