Organizing Task of the Day- The Dreaded Freezer

If you read my blogs on a regular basis, you know that I am addicted to A&E’s “Hoarders”. I have no idea why watching other peoples mental disorders intrigues me, it is kinda like slowing down for a car accident, you know you shouldn’t look but you can’t help yourself! I stream them off the website and the one I watched last night touched a little too close to home. This crazy old bat hoarded food….everywhere. There was gross rotten food everywhere in her home, no, that is not what touched close to home… it was her freezer!

Saying that my freezer is full is the understatement of the century. It is a crammed full death trap and I actually make sure my kids are not under it when I open it for fear of them being impaled by falling frozen meat tubes… which fall out on a regular basis…along with cans of juice, boxes of chicken nuggets and bags of frozen veggies. I have no idea what is in the back of this food crypt and I’m sure some of it has probably been there since I moved in…4 years ago. So, if you’re asking yourself why I am writing a daily organizing blog while my own freezer is a horrible disorganized mess… the answer is…. I am a total organizing fraud!  I need help just as much as the next guy, but as I struggle to keep my own home is order I can share the tips and troubles I experience along the way.

So, today is a great day to tackle that freezer of yours. Take everything out and only put back the stuff you would actually eat. Good luck! Wish me the same!
