November 15th is Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day
“The origins of National Clean out Your Refrigerator Day are not entirely clear; one Web site pins it on a Whirlpool Appliance Ad campaign from years ago, while other sites say it’s to make space for Thanksgiving provisions. more here…“
To help you out –> here are Mike’s top five tips for cleaning out the fridge…
#5. Throw out that salad dressing bottle that’s upside down in the door rack – if you haven’t used that last little bit yet, you’re never going to.
#4. That foggy Tupperware container that’s in the far back corner, that no one knows what’s in it… –> throw the whole thing out, Tupperware and all – before it climbs out of there on it’s own and eats the dog one night.
#3. Do it before you eat anything, so nothing comes up when you gag.
#2. When checking best before dates…. remember to check the year too.
#1. Get the job done quickly and don’t get wrapped up in that game where you open the door really quickly to see if you can catch the light still off. –> kept ME goin’ for hours!
