I can be such an impulsive shopper. Poor Chris just shakes his head. My most recent purchase is called a Fridge Coaster. I call it an excuse to clean my fridge. And they’re cute. Mine is teal with medallions, chevrons and polk-a-dots.
I chose the fridge pack which comes with an assortment of colors and sizes. I figured that I would try it out first and then buy more if it’s working out.
The concept is pretty simple. Put an absorbent, recyclable board under your food and you will have less mess to clean in the end. The fridge pack covered most of my shelves, but not all. I could use a couple more large coasters for the top shelf and very bottom shelf.
Luckily my fridge was fairly empty when I took my pics so you can see what they look like.
I put two smaller coasters together for the long shelf.
As you can see they’re a little small for the crispers.
According to the FAQ sheet, Fridge Coasters:
- are good for 120 days unless you spill raw meat on them
- can be wiped down with a soapy sponge
- will not lose their form, swell, or fall apart when they get wet
- will not bleed ink even when submerged in water
I’ll keep you posted on how they hold up over time. Maybe they’ll work out so well that Chris won’t roll his eyes at me next time a mysterious package arrives on our porch.
What have you bought lately on impulse?
Have a great weekend.
