34 Weeks of Clean: Week 4 - Fridge, Freezers, and Floors

This week I was excited about this challenge.  I dove in face first last week as soon as I knew what the challenge was.  The freezer in my kitchen fridge was in great shape.  I only keep a few select items in it that are used frequently.  I cleaned my quickly emptying fridge, since I knew I would be going shopping the next day.  I also looked over the front of my fridge and cleaned off old and useless items that went straight into the trash can and wiped off the dusty top.  I also found a few items that hadn't been used and were beyond usable.

The rest of the week I kept thinking I need to get to the other fridge and straighten up the upright freezer and wash the kitchen floor.  Sadly, I didn't get to it, but we did enjoy a birthday celebration day and had company for dinner one evening.  I also planned to finish taking down the Christmas stuff from week one.  I didn't finish that either, but I did pack up all our Christmas books and put them away in the closet for next year.  One small step in the right direction is better than none.  I usually tackle the upright freezer in the spring when it is warm and I can defrost it before I have my garden providing produce that I want to freeze.  I know I'll get to that.  The garage fridge isn't too bad.  The floors still need washing, since they only usually get spot washed as needed I'm sure they are pretty dirty.  Hopefully I'll do better on next week's challenge.

  1. Suanna, A good reminder that small steps still count as steps! And I think you did a great job! Love your cute helper! ;) And yes, doing the freezer in the garage in SD in the winter was not the smartest idea I have had lately! brrrrrrr!

    1. Thank you, Michele. Clark likes to get in my pictures when he sees me with the camera.

  2. ha ha - I have a child that loves to jump in front of the camera a lot as well. :o) I also waited for my fridge to be on the emptier side before doing the challenge too.

    1. It is definitely easier to clean out the fridge when you've used many of the items up.
