I made one mistake this:

#5 Not very, I throw out... should say Very, I throw out...

It's very clean because it's new and we haven't had enough time to get it dirty.

Between us, my wife and I keep our primary refrigerator tidy and well organized.  The refrigerator in the little kitchen, however, is not quite as tidy because the overflow items we stocked up on when Publix had them buy one, get one free go in there (no leftovers).

That’s right, yours is new.

I wasn’t sure if I meant cluttered or clean.  A refrigerator can be poorly organized with things piled up, but still be fresh and clean without any spoiled food.

I approached it from the cluttered aspect.  It's also clean

Good!

It was packed full a week ago. Now, I'm finding stuff that is still OK and we have been eating that. The goal is to draw down the stuff in the fridge and freezer over the coming month, and get things better organized.

I got the big fridge for $150 at an estate sale 3 years ago. It has the large door pockets that can hold multiple gallon jugs of stuff, and the shelves are loaded with probably too much stuff as well. So, I'm trying to reduce the volume.

I have an empty "dormitory sized" fridge that is going into the shop building when I get enough space organized in there, and that may become a staging area for freeing up space in the big fridge.

There are also two freezers that are nearly full and about half full respectively. I was digging in the chest freezer today and discovered probably a couple years' supply of butter. Such is the legacy of having to rush through grocery shopping and not having an accurate inventory of a good list, racing against the tyranny of the clock, and pouncing on seasonal price drops of things that can be frozen and used safely years later.

Today I found some individually wrapped salmon filets and some tilapia filets, so I fixed one of those for "brunch" using a spare crock pot set up outside to keep heat out of the kitchen. Just pour in some water, set it on medium heat, drop in the sealed frozen fish in its package, and set the timer for a couple of hours. It's thawed and fully cooked and the boiling water doesn't mix with the fish.

I also found a case of Klondike ice cream bars. It is now a case minus 2 bars. Yum.

Why don’t I ever find forgotten Klondike bars in my freezer?
