For all of you embarking on the Empty Pantry Challenge Adventure! this month the first thing I wish I had known was to organize my fridge! It’s not exactly dirty laundry but here’s my very dirty fridge before I started in November:
I have no idea what that goopy stuff on the bottom was but it’s clean now. This was my $40 garage sale fridge so please note the missing shelf on the door. Those bottom shelves have broken tracks but it’s cold and clean so that’s all I need.
Once everything is out start throwing it all back in. This was my snacks/dairy shelf which is up near the top since I can’t find the little containers in the bottom behind something else. Milk, water & juice occupy the top shelf.
Next, lunches. The pb&j shelf.
Special shout out to Honey, a good friend who taught me how to make my own raspberry liqueur this summer. So good. And I use organic raspberries so it’s healthy, right?
And I organize the door shelves with condiments, salad dressing
And there you have it, a slightly more organized fridge, proof I don’t need more salad dressing and one of the best tricks to emptying your pantries – knowing what’s in there first!
Now wish me luck, tonight I tackle the freezers!
