In our last house we had a different fridge. We unfortunately couldn’t take it with us because it wouldn’t have fit in our new house. It was a pretty good fridge & I really miss it. Wahhh. I think this fridge that we have now is from my childhood. The one before that was avocado green! I secretly wish we still had it.
Our fridge now works for the most part and we’ve been living with it (it leaks and makes really loud noises!) but I feel like it should be called the GREAT FOOD HIDER. I swear, I never really know what I have in there because I have to stand back 5 feet to see way in the back of it.
I was having a really good Sunday in the kitchen last week and decided to go through my fridge again and weed it out & set the tone for the week. Sometimes that’s all it takes to get my head back in the game.
Here’s the kitchen. This is the kitchen I learned how to cook in! It’s changed a lot over the years.
Are you ready to see inside? It’s kinda packed. Go ahead…snoop!
There’s really no rhyme or reason for anything. I’ve been living in the SHOVE stuff in here mode.
It’s not really that fun. I have no idea what’s in there half the time.
So I started sorting everything.
And cleaning…a soapy rag makes a huge difference.
Especially with the yucky parts. Dang jam!
We also have a part of the fridge that leaks…water collects down here and I have to use a turkey baster to get it out every other day. YIKES!
This is the current sate of our fridge. Things are way more organized. I also weeded out a bunch of old stuff.
I probably could have done a better job “styling” the drawers but THIS IS REAL LIFE.
All it takes is meal time and the chi can get disrupted.
Have mercy! There’s actually some empty spots to put food now.
I bought a few pull out bins from the Container Store. They’re fantastic.
This bin is for tubs of things–like cream cheese, sour cream, dips, etc.
This narrow pullout bin is for almond butters & such.
I sorted all of my jars/condiments and created sections for myself.
I’m sticking to it!
I really hope that I can keep this up! The freezer is next!
