I have heard before that the clutter in your fridge is predictive of the clutter in your home. If that is the case, then my home was headed for a mess. While I regularly throw out old leftovers or spoiled veggies, I deep clean my fridge only rarely. This time it was past due for a good scrubbing. It was gross!
In this de-cluttering, I removed everything that could be removed. Everything was scrubbed with soap and water. Then only what was still in date and regularly used was returned to the fridge. Hopefully I'll get to the freezer soon too.
