I know I’ve said how much I love cleaning and organizing. But there’s one room in the house that I just can’t ever clean or organize like I want to. The kitchen. Specifically, the fridge and pantry. I don’t know why but it literally takes weeks to throw out old, expired food.
Half the time, it’s me telling the boyfriend, “Ehhhh…I wouldn’t eat that if I were you.” And the other half of the time is the boyfriend pulling stuff out of the fridge, “October 18th! That’s definitely expired,” and then puts it back in the fridge! We’re the worst when it comes to that!
But, on the other hand, I’ve got some good stuff in there too! So here’s a little bit of the good, the bad, and the ugly.
1. String cheese for days
There always seems to be a lifetime supply of string cheese. It’s just too easy of a snack!
2. Salsa from a couple of weeks ago
Well it came with our burritos from the Mexican restaurant down the street and I didn’t get to try it that night. So I guess I’m just saving it for a rainy day?
3. Flaxmeal from about 2 years ago
I bought this bag when it said ‘April 2016’ was the expiration and that was super far into the future. Look at it now.
4. Salami and Laughing Cow cheese
My staple after work snack. I actually just rush home to eat a bunch and then put it all away before the boyfriend comes home. Then we head out to the gym 😉
5. Rice cakes from last month when I was on that “cleanse”
Those are most DEFINITELY stale by now. Okay, fine. I’m throwing them away!
6. A million bags of rice
Because I can never remember if I had any rice at home! Then I bring the new bag home to put it with its 4 other buddies. Yup. I had rice.
7. Plenty of beer for a college party
Okay not really, but we were suppose to go camping, so we stocked up and then it got cancelled, so now our fridge is seriously stocked!
8. Possibly spoiled milk
That neither the boyfriend or myself can bring ourselves to do the sniff test to see if it’s actually gone bad. It’s a week past it’s prime, but I’m terrified of pouring out milk and there being chunks in it. So I’ll just leave it!
9. The super sized box of popcorn
Because I could eat popcorn everyday. So I gotta buy that shit in bulk.
10. Champagne and OJ
Simply because you never know when you’re going to want a mimosa or need some champagne to celebrate surviving another day!
What oddball things to you find in your fridge or pantry when you finally get around to making more room for new snacks? Happy Monday my peeps! 🙂
