Day 11 Lots O' Nothin'

Yipee...  I completed day #11 of The 21 Days To Getting Organized Challenge! Well, it's actually only day two for me {remember}, but who's counting?  All that matters is that I'm gettin' it done.  

So... my freezer isn't huge, thank goodness, but it sure was packed with a bunch of junk! It was very obvious that we don't use half of the things we freeze once I started taking them out today. I'm not even sure I want to tell you some of the {dates} I found on a few packages.  Let's just say many, many months... years even?

Though my freezer looks small, it's pretty deep!  Guess what I found in the back? Liquid Gold  Yes, you heard me right, my liquid gold... {a.k.a breast milk}. Ughh... I worked SO hard to save it for Peek-a-Boo and there it sat.  All 500 ounces of it!  Yep that's right folks, 500 ounces.  That's 100 5oz bags!  How the heck did I miss that?  I'll tell you how...  lack of organization.  Fooey... 

I'm sorta sad about the waste, but happy to have an empty freezer.  Now I've got a great reason to whip out my coupons, head to Target, stock up on a few baskets, and some frozen grub!

Thanks for stoppin' in!  Wonder what's in store for Day 12... stay tuned!

So sorry for your loss! Those 500 ounces were hard earned! Nice to have the free space in the freezer though!

Oh man! That's awesome! Getting organized feels good!

I have all this liquid gold that just plain went bad. In like 3 months. The Lanisoh bags are to blame I believe. I still can't get myself to toss it. I'm silly.

I totally understand the need to clean out the freezer! I did a major overhaul yesterday, trying to add my groceries and found a couple things I thought I was out of.

BTW, I'm a new follower from Friend Finding Friday at Supermom's site.

I am gonna go clean mine out, too. Why is it so hard to throw it out? We know we are never going to cook it at some point. Craziness!

Brooke said...

Man, I should check out that 21 day thing... I haven't heard of it! I am soooo envious of your freezer. Thanks for motivating me.

Holy cow! What a difference. I wish my fridge looked like the "after". Thanks for sharing this. It definitely makes me want to clean out my fridge. Okay, maybe not. Ha! Looks GREAT!
