We’re focusing on our kitchen again this week with the Weekly Decluttering Challenge.
Last week, we cleaned and organized our pantry and food cupboards and this week, we’re going to focus on our refrigerator and freezer.
If you’re participating in the Grocery Budget Challenge, February’s action step is to clean out and organize our kitchen pantry and refrigerator. By keeping our kitchens organized, menu planning will be much easier, we’ll reduce our food waste, and we’ll be less likely to buy duplicates.
5 Simple Steps to Clean and Organize Your Refrigerator and Freezer
1. Remove EVERYTHING from your refrigerator and freezer.
2. Wipe down the inside of your refrigerator and freezer.
3. Discard outdated food.
4. Sort the food by category, such as dairy, condiments, drinks, leftovers, etc, and group categories together.
Does your refrigerator need cleaned out? Take a few minutes this week to do so. Also, if you need inspiration and support with controlling your grocery bill, join our monthly Grocery Budget Challenge. Our next meeting is February 28.
