I would get a big basket to put everything in

You could line it with fabric to match your kitchen's colors.

if you can't lie no better than that......you might as well tell the truth.

This is another one of those areas where you could use an old dresser drawer (measure drawer before taking to make sure it doesn't "overhang" the fridge or not fit under the cupboard).  Paint it to match the fridge....and you've effectively camoflaged the clutter!

Target and Wal-Mart have really pretty lined wicker baskets for as low as $9.99 and you can use them as portable junk drawers.  I use them for everything now and you can make a pattern from the fabric lining that comes w. them to use w. any fabric you want.

I'm almost done with my kitchen clean-up (makeover) and the fridge was part of it. Get brand names out of sight, so stash them in a cabinet or transfer the contents into another label-free container (like the Krispies cereal, for example). I've turned to glass containers for coffee, powder creamers and all oils that usually stay on countertops. Might want to remove the smaller items from the fridge top too. They're so easy to lose and hard to see up there. One basket to hold everything is a great idea.
