Cleaning out my fridge’s freezer was crazy.

Finally the day came that I cleaned out my fridge’s freezer. It was very scary. Two bowls of compost made it outside. Lots of plastic bags were recycled. A few twist ties and bread tags were thrown in the garbage along with some mystery food items. It was so eye-opening the wastefulness of it all. Why did I have so many bags of half eaten loads of bread? There are still some convenience foods in the freezer. There are no longer any items in the fridge’s freezer that I don’t remember when they were bought.

The next step will be my fridge. It does get way more attention than the freezer. Still items get hidden in the corners and back until they are no longer edible. Then the deep freeze in our garage (that still isn’t fully painted).

One day soon we will need to replace our fridge. This is the one I want but in white.

Or maybe this one… http://bigchill.com/site/shop/big-chill-fridge 

This is the fridge we will probably get though because the other ones are $3690 American and they don’t ship to Canada. So unless we win the lotto and drive a pickup to Boulder, Co then we’re stuck with a normal not retro-cool fridge.

The one thing I know for sure is that if it’s not the cool blue one up above than it needs to have the freezer on the bottom. I’m tired of not seeing all the stuff in my fridge without bending down. There’s also the fact that they are more energy-efficient too!

Have a great weekend!
