Cereal on top of the refridgerator

Inspired by a thread a made the other day, I decided to buy some cereal and put it on the top of my refrigerator as a prank. My wife saw it and we both had a good laugh but then we started to wonder why extremely poor households put cereal and other pantry items on the refrigerator. Does anyone here do that and why?
