Hooray, we’ve got even more FLYgirls taking the Scaredy Cat Challenge! Liz and Sheryl have now joined myself, Lesley, Lee, Candace, Asfora and Emma. Are you next? 🙂 Remember, it can be anything you like – something you want to do but are having trouble starting. We’re here to hold your hand! 🙂
Today I’m starting a new Scaredy Cat Challenge. Something I’ve been putting off for months…six months, to be exact! Oh, the shame! 😉 We remodelled our kitchen at the end of last year (it’s all here on the blog…) and I got a brand spanking new ‘American’ fridge. Which to those of us in Europe means b-i-g. The old fridge went out the front door and the old freezer was moved to the basement – just in case. I was glad to get a fresh start with my freezer because, although I’m getting really good at meal planning (thanks to the Flylady, I’ve been planning meals for over 30 weeks – go me!), I’m really bad at forgetting what’s in the freezer. And not using it. And buying more. You get the picture?
After 6 months, my new freezer looks like this. No rhyme or reason any more to how things are stored…just shove them in! 😉
The old freezer (you remember…the one we kept, just in case) is also full of food!
Though in my defence, at least the baskets are marked with categories: meat, bread and pastry, vegetables. And the most imporant one with all the goodies! 🙂
Did I tell you that we also have another little freezer space? The little box on top of our very first fridge – which we also keep in the basement. This freezer is very occasionally used for ‘stash and dash’ but most of the time it’s left completely to its own devices – eek! 😉
Many moons ago I used an inventory – I just typed up a list of the main things that were in the fridge (minced beef, lamb steaks, frozen peas, etc) and crossed them in and out. So I think that’s my first task. Any ideas welcome! And if you want to join me on this, or any other challenge…join up with the MckLinky below!
Have a super Sunday! 🙂
