There's Nothing Hairy In My Fridge

Ivy and I are leaving for a two-night trip tomorrow and today I stocked up the fridge with all my boys' favorite goodies. I thought this would be a good time, too, to check in on the new Frigidaire. [For a recap, Frigidaire gave me a brand new Frigidaire Gallery to keep, in exchange for a few posts about my experience and their More Me-Time Guarantee.]

As I was putting everything away, I realized that since I've gotten the new fridge, I've been way better (
waaaaaay better) at disposing of leftovers, expired foods, moldy things... you know. (You do know, right?)

The Gallery doesn't have many blindspots, so my fridge is pretty much always clean. And since I've had it, there's not been one un-identifiable thing growing in there.
Yet.

I
really had to get used to the way the shelves were positioned and spaced, and originally thought it was a drawback. What I have found is that it actually has the most usable shelf space compared to other counter depth side-by-side models, allowing me to keep a good inventory on everything in there which has come in very handy during my make-whatever-we-have-on-hand dinners. (Which happens a lot.)


So I just showed you the inside of my fridge! And I just might have kept some of our guilty pleasures from your view (they were in the door.) And the freezer just might be stocked with lots of convenient dinner options for Daddy to make while I am gone. I do always make sure we have lots of green and red grapes and strawberries. We eat lots of veggies & dip, too. And chips and salsa (you can see my new favorite- Mike Ditka's Beach Bum salsa (who knew?) up there.)

And, even though I just went to the store and filled this fridge and all my cabinets, I have absolutely no clue what I'm making for dinner. Oh, and I haven't even started packing either.

  1. I love the fridge! And I know what you mean about left overs; we have an OLD OLD fridge, and there are many blind spots. I found something earlier today as I searched for lunch items that was SO BAD, I just threw the whole tupaware away instead of risking opening it...:) lol

  2. So that's how to stop having hairy things in my fridge... convince Hubby that I need a NEW one! :)

    So glad you've been blessed with the Frigidaire.

  3. Wow can a new fridge do that? Amazing. I wonder how many hours and how much nausea it would take to make mine look like that? I am not posting any pics to help you guess :).

  4. Don't you LOVE a clean fridge? Ah. Lovely.
    Our babies are really close in age, and we have very similar parenting philosophies. I really identify with some of the things you talk about. :) So, "Hi".
    Have fun on your trip!

  5. I like how you keep the iced chai and the whipped cream together in the fridge, front and center. Priorities!

  6. Oh, I so want the gallery. It matches everything else in our kitchen and we don't have the fridge.

    Oh, and where are you going? I need a getaway. Can I hitch a ride in the suitcase?

  8. This is a weird thing to notice, but where's the milk? It's funny how much I loved looking inside your fridge! I guess that's MY guilty pleasure! -Chan

  10. Glad you are enjoying your fridge. :) Just a silly question - you DO know you can adjust the shelves so you can make whatever spacing you want, right? ;)

  11. Toni, ha yes! But in order to keep at least one area tall enough, I don't have that many options other than removing a shelf and I have figured out how to make it work this way so far! I might change it up a bit now & then, tho!

  13. It looks great! Lots of space in there!

  14. Who knew looking in someone's fridge could be so fascinating? I actually enlarged the photo (does that make me totally weird?). ;)

    Anyway, I'm impressed by the healthful foods inside, but now I'm curious what is in the side doors...
