“The refrigerator is one of the hardest working appliances in your home — and one that often takes a beating. It’s subject to spills, varied odors, and overcrowding, and it’s the one appliance that never gets a rest. A clean refrigerator promises to keep food fresher, so do your best to maintain the cleanliness of this kitchen workhorse.” -Martha Stewart
End of the month is always a great time for myself to clean the inside of my fridge. To me, it is all about preparing for the coming month.
Wednesdays I usually clean out spoiled food and wipe the shelves down one shelf at a time. I call it a ‘Refrigerator Boogie’. It also has other benefits.
- A great time to take inventory of items on hand before the weekly grocery shopping trip.
- Prepares the fridge for the food one purchases.
- Makes dinner preparation easier.
However, the end of the month is when I have the least amount of food in it and I take advantage of removing what is in there and mixing a solution of baking soda and water to give it a good wipe down.
I always have my running grocery list nearby to jot things down as I think of them during this time.
Now, the only thing I have to wait for is ‘Pay Day!’
