And Now, We Freeze…


So, as promised last week, we are tackling the freezer side of the problem today. Well, actually, it was Monday that I needed to clear out the freezer to go to the grocery store, so I took some pictures and saved them for you.

Let’s get started.

I actually forgot to take a shot before I started, so this is after I had finished the door.

As you can see, the freezer is a mess. Disorganized, in need of scrubbing, and full of outdated food.

I threw out everything past its expiration date…

And that was only the first bag…

Once everything was cleared out, it was time to scrub things down. We went from this:

To this:

Yes, there is still a bit of gunk around the edges, but getting it that far wasn’t easy.

TIP: Get the gunk wet with the sponge and let it sit for a minute or so. Much easier to wipe out that way.

So, here is the final result:

Before the grocery store, that is. Everything remaining is under the expiration date (and those dates are facing outward for easier visibility.)

I have all my “meat things” on their own shelf, so my vegetarian husband won’t accidentally grab one of them.

And there is room for the vents to work correctly.

Here is the after the grocery store pic:

As you can see, still work to do in the kitchen, but the refrigerator is now clean and full of healthy food.

Here’s hoping we can keep it that way!
