I love a clean refrigerator, of course who doesn’t, right? Before I go grocery shopping, I like to give my refrigerator a quick clean up before I load it back down with my purchases. It’s the ideal time.
I have been known to clean a family member or two’s fridge. A few weeks ago I couldn’t resist tackling such a fridge with permission from such a loved one who wishes to remain anonymous (Big smile).
This is the before shot of said refrigerator, and in all fairness, if you come to visit this person, she always has food on hand to prepare you something yummy and delicious.
Incidentally, she has a side by side refrigerator, and I’ve always wanted one, but when we bought our home, the space allotted for the refrigerator was not wide enough. However, all the people I know that have one seem to be disappointed by the narrow freezer, so I am curious as to what your preferences are?
Ok back to cleaning the fridge…
First, I disposed of the expired items, then I gave the shelves and inside a wipe down with hot soapy water, and then grouped like items together.
All the cream cheeses and jellies went together, and salad dressings and condiments.
The doors actually look fuller, but since like items are grouped together things should be easy to find.

We had an empty back of the pantry door spot, so I utilized the unclaimed space.

I’ve mentioned this before, but this file folder caddy is so handy, and it sits on my kitchen counter for a quick mail sort.
