Meet Allison of Fridge File

What is your business and where can we find it?
My product is called the Fridgefile™. It is a product that I have designed, manufacture and market myself. We sell wholesale, retail and as a fundraising product. It is sold mostly on the internet; however, we have been featured on QVC and in national catalogs.
Is it mom-owned, invented, created . . .?
My company is a mom-owned company with a mom-invented product! I am a certified Women-Owned business as well.
A little about your entrepreneur journey so far…
It all started with an idea. I was tired of papers hanging off my refrigerator and piling up on my counter. I had an idea of a product that would alleviate that problem. I began researching on the internet, meeting up with inventor organizations and asking a lot of questions. Eventually I wrote my own patent, set up my company and began marketing it myself. I eventually struck a deal with a British company and wrote the licensing deal myself. Now the Fridgefile is sold in the US and Britain! It has not always been easy, but there were so many people who were willing to help me. I couldn’t have done it without them.

The folders are perfect! I'm tired of all the papers on the fridge and having to hold them up with magnets. This would be a big help as we are expecting our 2nd little one anytime now and need to get the household organized!

Since I have 3 kids who are constantly bringing home papers to sign, book orders to return, practice schedules, etc. I would use one pocket for each kid and have a much easier way to keep track of their stuff!

We could use this to organize the front of our refrigerator. While refrigerator magnets are cute and all that we have stuff stuck up all over the front of the refrigerator that could be neatly organized in this neat gadget.

This is such a great idea!!! I could really use this to help clean up my kitchen counter. My poor son had to sit in study hall for 3 days because his slip was buried in my pile of papers. I could put that in the Fridgefile and would see that it needs my attention right away!!

Courtney said...

I would love to have this because the kitchen is where everyone hangs out in my home and I am always fumbling for a pen or a scrap of paper to write something down. I could be far more organized with this! Thanks for the giveaway!

suzie said...

I could really use this to help get myself more organized. I am always rushing around in the mornings because there is something I forgot to sign, put in a backpack, etc. and I have to hunt around for the papers. Thanks for the opportunity.

Danielle a.k.a Yellie said...

I just got extremely excited when I saw this! This is exactly what we need. We are constantly losing important papers, permission slips, etc. of the kids' in the shuffle of all the paperwork we end up with around here and this would give us a place to put each of the kids' papers where we will be able to locate it easily!
