52 week challenge week 23: Refrigerator (inside and out)

Back to the kitchen for a while…

Time to get the refrigerator cleaned up inside and out!

First, take everything out. You can do it a shelf at a time, or just grab it all and go. Wash down the shelves and drawers, and then start putting things back.

But be wise and sort well! Anything left from Shavuot has reached the end. And despite trying to keep track of everything, I often find something at the back that I forgot about. Plus, getting deep into the fridge helps you remember what you have and make plans to use it!

Once the inside is cleaned, it’s time for the outside. Again, take everything off the fridge. This tends to be a hotspot for many homes – once something is put up, it often takes huge amounts of time to get it back down. Like that calendar of events…from last year? Or a photo card where the kids are several years younger than they are now.

Time to make room for summer activities and foods!
