How to become a grown-up in 468 easy(ish) steps.

Step 85: Maintain a clean fridge for 30 days

In the past few weeks, I reorganized Chernobyl Closet and got everything out from under my bed. I have tamed the wild and lawless parts of my apartment … except the refrigerator.

True confession: Sometimes, after I have let something go really bad in the fridge, I just throw out the Tupperware rather than deal with it. I KNOW. I know this is the worst thing I could do. But it is something that I do, sometimes. And this is not adulting in any way, shape or form. 

So I’m going to get my fridge shipshape and Bristol fashion. And then keep it that way for 30 days. Let’s not get too crazy here; I can’t commit to always having a clean fridge. But I can for 30 days. Aiding me in this quest will be StillTasty.com, which is an amaaazing guide to the shelf life of every single kind of food in the world. Like, how long will fresh, raw organic apples stay good in the freezer? StillTasty knows!

Except … I’m going to embark on this tomorrow, since I’m kinda hungover from a Halloween party and that is not very conducive to fridge cleaning.
