Clean Your Refrigerator Day

Sharing is caring!

When's the last time you cleaned your fridge? www.nogettingoffthistrain.com

So is anybody else like me, where you stick things in the fridge and promptly forget about them for like a year? I’m so guilty of this! I collect food and then never use it. Luckily, I saw that November 15th is Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day, so I took this as the perfect chance to purge all the expired food I have! What did my fridge look like before?

So the inside of the fridge isn’t too bad, although you can see a ton of leftovers. We try to use those up before they go bad. My problem lies with the inside door; 2 large jars of pickles, a jar of caramel sauce with a thimble-amount of caramel in it, and a jar of salsa that I don’t remember how long it’s been in there.

Wow, I had a few things in here that were fairly past their expiration date. Oh hey, there’s a jar of chili sauce I haven’t seen in awhile, I wonder how old that–

OH DEAR LORD what have I done with my life. You can tell how long it’s been since I’ve done a purge.

This looks so much better, and now I know everything in there is within its expiration date! I even gave myself ideas for dinner this next week after looking at the teriyaki sauce.

So how does YOUR refrigerator look? Is it as bad as mine? Take some time today and clear out any expired items, or find still-good items that you can use up this week!

I never would have thought of that! Pretty useful tips! I plan to clean my fridge soon and I feel overwhelmed when I think of how much work is to clean the fridge. I definitely need to make a list and have a good plan before I start. Thanks for sharing!
