Snap It - Subject Three - Refrigerator Raider

Every house has one.
We all visit it. (some of us more than others)
We put things in...We take things out.
Its on every episode of Cribs...

That's right...Subject 3 is The REFRIGERATOR. The FRIDGE. The FRIGIDAIRE. The ICEBOX.
Whatever you call it, you have one.

I was inspired to make this our new subject while putting groceries away. I like the way things look when they are all in their place, when the drawers are filled with fruits and veggies - when there is juice, water, diet cokes in their spot. Nice and stocked. Surely I'm not the only one that feels this way.

I also want to look back and remember things that were constants. Things that were ALWAYS in my fridge. Things that my family consumed on the daily. Things I bought the generic brand of, things I didn't mind spending the extra money on. The ingredients always on hand for the meals I made often.

Instead of the inside of your fridge or freezer. You could also take a picture of whats ON your fridge. The alphabet magnets, the to-do lists, the pictures, the fruit stickers, the forms you need to sign, the coupons you've clipped. Believe it or not, a snapshot of whats ON your fridge at the current moment is a beautiful slice of life and will reveal more than you think.

Consider these ideas on Snapping your photo this week:
  1. Snap something you keep in there JUST for your spouse,gf,or bf.
  2. Snap something you keep in there JUST for the kiddos.
  3. Snap something that is such a naughty, guilty pleasure.
  4. Snap something inside that you can't believe you bought.
  5. Take a step back and snap a picture of the whole fridge- with the doors closed.
  6. Instead of snapping a view of the whole inside - highlight something you always have in your fridge.
  7. Snap the front of the fridge - The magnets, the coupons, the pictures - whatever is ON your fridge.
  8. Snap a picture of the whole thing doors open.
  9. Snap a picture of your pantry.
As usual - here is yummy Flickr inspiration.
So I've seen Mariah Carey's, Simon Cowell's, and now I want to see yours.

wondering what I'll cook for dinner tonight,
aw
