You would never guess what I have been doing every New Years Day for the last 5 years……… cleaning out my REFRIGERATOR! I know it doesn’t sound glamorous but it’s a great way to start out the new year.
First I get rid of everything that we haven’t used in a long time. Then I get rid of anything that only has a small amount of the contents left. Then I get rid of anything that is expired. That right there clears up a lot of new space. I then wash all the removable shelves in warm soapy water, put them back in the refrigerator and start organizing. I decided that it makes more sense to store the milk and juice in the door (where it should have been all along). I like to see what I have — so I’ll use it!
Everything is sparkly clean – I love it!
