Alright, now we’re in the midst of Seven Seconds Scullery Scaffolding.         What in the world does scaffolding have to do with the Scullery??         Well, here’s my take on it.     Google defines it as “a temporary structure on the outside of a building, made usually of wooden planks and metal poles, used by workers while building, repairing, or cleaning the building.”         So, I’m taking the cleaning part, and applying it to the fridge.           Got it?      No, not that it matters to you.

So, the inside of the fridge is a fright!!

This is the top shelf.      Can you see those open cans??      Look behind the pie!

                                                            Yeah, had to trash those!

And later, I found out, thanks to PP’s discriminating taste buds, that the milk was rotten too.       Sorry, baby!       Omie didn’t mean to!

     (If you squint, can’t you see how the wire shelves look like scaffolding??)

Second shelf, the 2 dozen eggs that I bought for DD2’s birthday breakfast.       On Feb 23.      At least it was 2017!!       And at least 1 of the yogurt boxes was completely empty.      Huh.         And more open cans.        Can you say yuck!!          I thought ya could!

The 3rd shelf.        Green eggs, (I’m sure by now)   and ham.     (At least I think that’s ham, all bundled up under there.      Probably it’s green by now too.)          And that yogurt is at least 7 months old.       Another toss without opening.

slob, humor, icky shelf

Close up of ickiness.

Yay!     At least 2 cleared, if not clean, surfaces!         Oopsie!      That cantaloupe is way past it’s prime.     Unless old as the hills is prime time now.       Poor PP, never got her ‘loupe.

Why do I have 2 lemons, for goodness’ sake??         I don’t even remember buying 1!     And I sure don’t remember using it!        But, it was amusing when PP opened it, and tried to drink it!       Bless her little heart!!          Oh, since I don’t remember which one it was, guess I better ditch both then.         Probably for the best!       And sadly, that Fanta is not peach.         It’s mango.      What a nasty trick to pull!

slob, humor, rotten food

All this goodness (note the sarcasm) that I was “shelf”ishly keeping all for myself!     

slob, humor, dehydrated mandarin oranges

I’ve never seen flat mandarin oranges before…

I didn’t even bother recycling those cans.      They just all went to the trash.       I do recycle, but I have my limit!

slob, humor, empty box

The aforementioned empty box. Recycled, of course.

The mac n cheese didn’t look so, so bad, in the first pic, so I had to dump it out some.        Now you can see the true depth of the nastiness!

slob, humor, moldy can o' food

You can see the nastiness of this moldy mac n cheese, even with your eyes closed!

     Yeah, the red stuff is cranberry sauce, from Thanksgiving.       (I’m thinking about just chunking those 3, without even opening them.)       Wise move, I’m sure!

So, that took the whole 15 min.      Pulling it all out, and dumping it.       I’m still dithering about the 3 plastic containers.

But, since a sweet lady at my church just gave me new ones last Sunday, I think I can probably just let them go….

So far 3 hrs 17 min Scullery Time, plus today’s 15, equals:  3 hrs 32 min  

 House Time was 5 hrs 28 min.    Adding today’s 15 , Total House Time: 5 hrs 43 min

Wow, this scaffolding sure needs more support!

  1. Lucy,
    First of all congratulations on getting the job done.
    Second, I think your fridge must be huge to hold all those things.
    Third, I think you have too much of money to be able to buy all those things or were they all gifts from others ?
    Please only buy as many things as you will need for about 3 days at a time. I am just like you in this refrigerator business and I learnt the hard way about hoarding. Now I make things in small amounts and buy things in small quantities too. Visits to the grocers, I try to make, as few as are necessary to prevent hoarding and subsequent wastage.

  2. I have a secret way to keep my fridge cleaner. I put potentially messy, spilly things into plastic box containers I found at Ikea. All the sauces are together, the salad dressings, the condiments, the jams and jellies,,,(you get the idea). It’s a system that’s working pretty well for me.Your work looks like it really paid off. Great job!

  4. I love that you always find a place to clean that I dread doing! Maybe the frig in our house will get cleaned while I’m off next week – or not! I can’t believe you are up to almost 6 hours already – it will all be decluttered in another hour! How exciting!

  5. I wrote a post on the refrigerator and freezer when I started The Comfortable Coop – Now I’m afraid to even look in either fridge! When the power went out we moved stuff to try to save it and now both look like a tornado did the arranging! But you convinced me it’s time to get everything straightened out again. Darn you! lol
