The number of items you have stuck to your refrigerator indicates whether you have a cluttered home or an uncluttered home, according to UCLA social scientists.
Social scientists at UCLA have written a book about “Life at Home in the Twenty-First Century ($25, UCLA Costen Institute of Archaeology Press). The book says that the more cluttered your fridge is with coupons, calendars and other stuff, the more likely you are to have a cluttered home.
According to the October issue of Food Network Magazine, the average family fridge has 52 things stuck to it, but they don’t indicate if that is high or low.
I tend to layer things. Also do alphabet magnets count as multiple items? That’s definitely hurting my average.
How many things do you have stuck to your fridge? It is more or less than 52? Does it accurately reflect how cluttered your house is?
