Clean out your Fridge or Freezer ? It always seems like there is Crap in the Fridge, 6 bottles of Salad dressing, 2 bottles Ketchup... You know the Leftovers you were going to eat 1-2 Years ago !!!!

Anyways , My wife is gone for another day or two and I'm taking EVERYTHING out ofthe Fridge, Everything out of the Freezer and Cleaning up stuff.

Just wondering if any of you do that or How long it's been ? Someone should try to look at the Salad dressing bottles.. I'm almost Afraind to say What I've found in there !!!

Mine doesn't ever get cleaned until my mom or sister come over and I play the sympathy "but I don't know what's still good, I'm just a boy" game. They always fall for it.

We clean out all the left overs the night before the trash goes to the end of the street for pick up.Now wiping all the shelves off is about once a month.

Hummmm........I'm not sure how often we clean it out, but I know IF it smells bad and has things growning on then I throw it out. But as for washing off the shelves and such I have no clue.

At home the wife handles it. Up at the hunting shack i do it every time i am up there. It seems that salsa jars, catsup bottles, and small milk bottles multiply up there as friends visit. In the fall i pretty much clean it out completely because anything in there would freeze and break.

Here at home The Wife takes care of it; I don't really know how often she does it.

At work, though, I'm called the Refrigerator Nazi.

I volunteered to manage the 'frige in the break room after getting pissed off about not having a place to sit a Coke for 3 days in a row.

Now, I require that each item in the 'frige be labeled with date AND initials. The first couple of days I did it, I threw out anything that wasn't dated for that day or w/o initials...then I backed off to twice a week, and now it's more like once a month. But baby, when I clean out the refrigerator, I CLEAN it. Anything w/o dates & initials gets thrown away (except Tupperware, which gets piled on the counter for claiming). Anyone who leaves anything in there long enough to get moldy or smelly gets tracked down and shown what it looks like. Anyone who beotches about it is told to go see their supervisor or The Boss, who back me up 100%.

When it comes to refrigerator upkeep, I AM THE MAN.

Ours is bad. I also have to wait for the wife to leave in order to clean out the fridge or the freezer. There is stuff in the freezer that is unidentifiable, it is so freeze-dried or freezer-burned. My wife has the best intentions of using every spec of food, even if that means "later." The dogs do enjoy it when she leaves for a day or two....

Wife cleans the refrigerator every week, usually Saturday after grocery shopping, before putting the new vittles in. The big freezer gets cleaned once a quarter. I don't know how she remembers it. I had to ask her when she cleans it......first I got the look, then the question why. When I explained she just rolled her eyes, and told me. Like I shoulda known that. Yea, like she knows when the rut kicks, or when squirrels mate.
