About a week ago, we lost our power. With temperatures going down into the teens, it wasn’t a fun situation to be in. From experience of living in Michigan almost all my life, I knew this one could be a tortuous situation lasting days. And it did. Once power came back on, we were faced with a fridge and freezer filled with food that had to be tossed. I’m not a fan of food poisoning and didn’t want to take any chances- it all had to go.
Imagine my surprise (not) when I found packages in the freezer labeled 2015- and some even older than that. Time to roll up my sleeves. But as I thought more about this, I realized that by being a freezer hoarder, I had used up precious space for items I’d probably never re-heat or cook. I mean- “Cowboy Lasagna?” Complete with crystals in the plastic baggie!
So…I started my research and found some great ideas online. Some are not ADD friendly, so don’t even attempt the tips that you know won’t work for you. But here are some good ones: Organize Your Freezer.
For starters, try dry erase crayons to label your containers. You can find them here.
Don’t wait until you can’t fit more food into your freezer or if you have a power outage. Clear out the unneeded stuff today! Need help getting motivated? Join me and the queens at the Queens of Distraction! Spring special savings end soon! Join me today at www.QueensOfDistraction.com.
