Organizing TIp #2 === Cleaning Fridge and Freezer

Keeping your fridge and freezer clean will help you out in several different ways. One it will help you cut down time in meal prep by being able find ingredients quickly and easily. It may also cut down on your grocery bill by not over buying products you all ready have or wasting products that you don't know you have.

To start you need to find out what is in the fridge or freezer to do this you need to take inventory. Discard items that are out of date as well as items that you will not use.

If your fridge has adjustable shelves and drawers be sure to get the most use from them Organize food items by size which will allow you to function for each shelf and make it much easier to locate your small, hard to see items. One good tip is to store jars and bottles in the fridge door and bagged items in the freezer door.   Keep the most often used items in front for easy access.

To help control odors keep an open box of baking soda in the back corner. Vanilla extract on a cotton ball or paper towel and placed on a paper plate can help add freshness to the fridge. When the ball is dry remove it.

Add the chore of cleaning out the fridge and freezer once a month to the list of chores.
