I don’t know about you, but I hate it when I need to pull just about everything out of my freezer just to see if I have something on hand. This week, I needed frozen corn for a recipe and I couldn’t remember if I had any on hand. Well, I checked in my disastrous messy freezer and didn’t see anything so I picked some up from the grocery store. Well, while I was putting the corn away guess what I came across? Two frozen bags of corn…uuugggghhh!
This is exactly why it is so important to stay organized when your a couponer. When you are trying to maximize every inch of space that you have, sometimes things can get overlooked.
I decided after the corn incident that it was about time to clean out my refrigerator and freezer for a fresh start this holiday season. Turkeys will start to go on sale in the next two weeks and I want to be ready and able to snag a few! It took me almost two hours to pull everything out, clean the inside and put it all back in, but now that it is done I am SO glad I took the time. I wish I would have remembered to take a before picture, but I did take an after picture and that is what you see above.
So…I know you saw it coming…this is your challenge this week! 😉 Clean out and organize your refrigerator and freezer. Even if you do it little by little, set aside a few hours this week to get the job done. Next week I’m going to be posting about freezer cooking and I want you all to be ready.
Please leave a comment when you are done this this challenge. I’d love to hear how it went for you. Perhaps some of you are already on top of this and can check it off your list right away!
