How often do you clean out your fridge/ freezer? I happened to have a mostly empty fridge at the start of the new year, and thought it would be a good idea to eat everything, clean it out, wipe it down, and start fresh. Including the freezer. I have a ton of stuff shoved back in the freezer that just sits there while I replenish the stuff in the front. Then a year later I'll pull out a freezer-burned chicken breast that I didn't even know was in there.

The last time it was cleaned was when Ike hit and everything spoiled, so I figure it's time.

I also need lots of gluten free goodies to fill it back up with. Giant shopping trip, can't wait.

Well...the freezer gets cleaned out when something goes wrong--like a few days ago when I got home from vacation and realized that the breaker had blown on the circuit with the freezer. Luckily nothing was really ruined, but all the old nasty stuff (and things that will never get eaten) got tossed.

Fridge is more frequent--but still normally waits till something spills. I happen to be a klutz, so that happens about every other month. That also is when I try to get rid of I just hope that the really nasty stuff is in a container that I can toss!
