It's the Fridge Challenge!!!

As a group mini challenge at Make Yourself a Priority we have been challenged to do the unthinkable. Share photos of the contents of our refridgerators with the blogging world. I've been looking at everyone's fridges and they all look so nice and neat. Mine is nothing of the sort. You can't even see a lot of the stuff in it. And that isn't likely to change anytime soon. Here comes the ugly!!!



There is the door. The hotdogs in the first picture are my husband's. I very rarely eat them. And the cheese is low-fat Bordens. I just love it. In the second picture, the only things that I use often are ketchup and low-fat Portmans Italian dressing. And the chocolate syrup is regular Hershey's. But I actually haven't had any in over a month. It's there for treating myself.









This is the top shelf of our fridge. 100% Dole fruit juice, unsweetened tea, 2% milk, and a couple of bottles of wine are the things that I mess with. Back in the corner are pickles and things. And the Mountain Dew is my husband's. He loves the stuff!







This is the rest of the fridge. Sandwich meat, and onion, wheat rolls, and my husband's dish of chili make up the first shelf. The second has his left over pizza from the other day and a container of peas that is probably too old to eat! The drawer is stuffed full of fruit, mostly oranges. GOOD STUFF there!








This is obviously the freezer door. On the top is an ice back and two corn dogs in a zip lock bag. And the bottom is a selection of frozen fruit, and boxes of butter and margarine. The butter isn't any diet friendly stuff, but it is what the mother-in-law picked up for us right after we got married!






And here is the main freezer. I have bags of frozen chicken (some patties and some I bought fresh) and ice cream that really show up in the picture. The Blue Bunny ice cream, both boxes, is fat free and really good. I don't eat it very often though so it lasts forever. The other box of ice cream is my husband's peanut butter fudge. I haven't tried it. Other items stashed away include a bag of sausage links (the hubby's), a box of corn dogs for when I'm busy and have some points to spend, and a 5 pound pack of hamburger meat for our next group dinner. I think there is also a lot of flavor ice and some meat my mother bought for me hidden away behind the ice cream!

Sorry if anyone is disappointed with my not so neat, and not so healthy, fridge. The husband likes a lot of stuff that I have no problems not touching.

And thanks for coming up with this challenge. I didn't have anything to do in my fridge, but this prompted me to clean out some of my kitchen cabinets tonight while my husband was fixing a camera/computer communication problem with my laptop. There was A LOT of stuff that the hubby had put up there that needed to be thrown away! And maybe our kitchen cabinets would be a challenge for later in the year!

I feel so much better now - finally someone who's NORMAL! hahahaha - no pristine fridges here either. I was starting to feel way intimidated to post pictures tomorrow.
Good that it's easy for you to resist the hubby's food! That's something I really struggle with :)

I see you met the challenge, congrats!

Your fridge is not bad. My husband is very anal about having the fridge clean so I can't do anything less. I had just cleaned it on Tuesday and emptied out old foods and replace them with new foods. I stocked up on veggies and fruits...now only if I eat them.

Don't feel bad Cory! My fridge was clean because a bottle of cranberry sparkling cider exploded at Christmas, so I took everything out and completely washed the inside of the fridge. Add to that the fact that I've been car-less for a week and haven't gone grocery shopping. :) But now at least you can wow us all at your transformed fridge in a week! Plus you went a step ahead and cleaned out your cupboards - great job!!

The only reason my fridge is remotely organized/clean right now is because we were out of town for 10 days so I had to start from scratch!!! I'm SO glad you posted even though you may not think its the prettiest fridge ever :) A challenge is a challenge after all!

And I cant wait to see your after pictures. I need to clean out my cabinets too... they're a DISASTER!!

My fridge was not clean. There is a ton of stuff I have to throw away. I found stuff in there that I can't remember buying, WTH?!?!

Don't feel bad about the butter...I use about 5 flexies a week on it becuase I love the stuff!

Here's the link to the exercise log I bought (and like so far):

I guess you'll need to copy and paste it....
