It’s National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day!

November 15, 2012

Time to make room for your Thanksgiving prep items because today, November 15, is National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day!  Trash that takeout box full of sludge! Chuck that chunky quart of milk! Banish those bottles of beer!—No, wait! Not those! Sorry, we got carried away. But you can see our enthusiasm for this weird holiday. With many tales of food follies from our college days, we now offer you a few words of wisdom, a proposal to help harden your stomach and numb your olfaction before you venture into the abyss you call your fridge for those unclaimed cartons of moldy goo.

  • Be prepared to see colors you didn’t know existed.

As a matter of splatter, anything and everything you toss into the trash will add to the interesting display visible even through the opaque white trash bag in every standard kitchen. Might we suggest something a little less offensive? Bin Bags from Suck UK with either a fun goldfish print or Christmas pudding effectively mask its contents while offering a quick chuckle. Plus, it’s best not to let others know you still had those Fourth-of-July leftovers.

  • The stench will be nauseating and, yes, oxygen-depleting.

You know those moments when something just sucks the breath out of you? Be prepared for that to happen repeatedly. At that first whiff of rotten cabbage or sour chicken juice, a can of Just Oxygen Canned Oxygen will at least freshen your next inhale. The menthol scent also invigorates, so you’ll get an extra push to shovel out what might be left.

  • Be sure to reward yourself for a job well done.

Hey, you worked hard, now you play hard. Have one on us with a Bottle Opener Fridge Magnet, also from Suck UK. Once you can see the back of your fridge, your Bin Bag gave you a lighthearted smile, and your canned oxygen uplifted your spirits, it’s time to make even more space by having a cold brew or four. Self-motivation is key!

Now let’s see how long it will be before your Thanksgiving leftovers see daylight again. Happy National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day!
