How can I put a calendar and schedule onto our fridge?
I have an industrial sized fridge in my home. The sides are magnetic where I place pictures on. However, I’d like to keep a meal plan schedule and calendar plus a few things in the front but the front is not magnetic and I don’t want to try adding magnetic paint etc for it. Anyway ideas of how I can attach things? Should I use command hooks ?

Command hooks would work great!
Command hooks are the easiest way to go, another suggestion would be to glue velcro to your area and attach the other half of the velcro to what you would like to hang up.
Hi Lisa. I love command hooks as they remove so easily. You can also use low tack tape found at craft stores it if is just a single paper. They come in a huge variety of colours and patterns and work wonderfully (washi tape).
Command hooks should work really well as long as the surface is flat, which it looks like it is. All you can do is try. There are so many hook variations now that you should be able to find something that will look good on your fridge.
If you use Command hooks, wipe the area clean with alcohol before applying the Command Hook. They do not stick to polished surfaces, so make sure all polish or residual kitchen grease is removed first. I would use the Command Hook sticky squares and put refrigerator clips on the frig to make replacing your schedule easy.
Yes, go with the command hooks. There are many kinds and they are easy to use. Post a photo of your finished solution.
If you really want to use magnets, I would attach a large metal cookie sheet or other metal tray using the command hooks and then you can use the magnets on that. Kind of like the magnetic spice rack I saw somewhere on this website.
The also are making those peak and stick calendars . They are at Target. Rolled up. They come off easy too. Usednwith a dry erase pen.
One way is to buy chalkboard contact paper. Carefully mark out a grid and trace with permanent marker, write days at top. Then peel the backing off and put on fridge. You can use chalk to write in events, dates, etc. They also make white board contact paper which might be easier to write on and wipe off.
you can use a combination of magnet strips and command hooks to add the create an entire command center on your fridge. I added a How video link for you to watch and get an idea of how to create your own. It’s very easy and cheap to do.
Command hooks is definitely the eay to go. They hold up even very large calendars.
That is the coolest refrigerator I've EVER seen!! I wouldn't hide an inch of that beautiful appliance w/ a calendar. A few pretty magnets & that's IT. 👍💜
I have a magnetic clip that holds a calendar at eye level. I put a flat advertising magnet I got from my electric company underneath the calendar to make sure the clip holding the calendar does not slide down. Works for us.
Why not use that wall next to the fridge for a nice big frame to group the menu, calendar, shopping lists etc? You can buy paint that has a whiteboard type finish for erasable areas, available in paint colors or clear.
I used chalkboard contact paper on my fridge. I cut it into a cool design, I practiced with a piece of newspaper first then used it as a pattern. I used a white sharpie to draw on the calendar grid and write on the days of the week.
I think I would be tempted to design a calendar grid, or use a page from a calendar for the given month and blue tack to the fridge. This would not cause any marks or damage to the fridge and could be easily switched up.
You have a good-sized blank wall next to the fridge, with just a tiny picture on it.
Buy a nice, big bulletin board, and hang it there. Then, between the side of the fridge and the bulletin board, you'll have plenty of room for posting things.
(There are lots of calendar grids available in office supply stores, or you can print one for each month from online websites. I print them months ahead, so they're ready when I need them.)
You may be able to use Command Hooks to hold them, or otherwise Double sided tape.
Hi Lisa, for sure command hooks will do the trick for you. They are called poster strips
Hop this helps you out
Why not hang you stuff on the wall to the right of the fridge? That way you could keep the fridge junk free and highlight the stuff you want on the wall where they would be more visible.
