Who would be the nutcase taking pictures of their fridge?

Ummm...that would be me.
But in my defense, it is Wednesday.
Works for me Wednesday.
The day we share a tip with the world, or in my case, my 3 readers.
My tip for the day is a labeled fridge!I bought a label maker quite some time ago, and I label EVERYTHING!!
This helps in the fridge for several reasons.

#1. I only find sticky jelly on the second shelf of the door. Unless...some crazy person decides not to read the obvious label and puts it on the top shelf where the sour cream is supposed to go and I have to get a step stool on cleaning day to try to scrub it out!! And do you know how hard it is to get jelly to come off...especially the kind that has bits of strawberries with seeds!!

Sorry, got a little carried away.

#2. On cleaning day, I don't find leftovers from 1825 tucked away in the far corners of the universe I call my fridge.

#3. It is easy to find things. When Phil wants his salami and cheese, he knows exactly where to find it. And...he knows exactly where to put it back...if by chance he chooses to put it away. :)

If you are weird like me, and would like to see how someone else does their grocery shopping, you can click:

to read and see how our shopping day goes on a cold Winter day here in Montana.
If you have a post of how you do your shopping...Puuuuleeze, leave me a comment so that I can visit your blog. I love to see how others do it and I am always trying to master mine!!

This is a little picture of PART of the end result of a once a month shopping day.

I really like this idea...I might use it for my new frig when we get the kitchen remodeled. Sadly, there is only 2 readers in my family right now...soon 3, but only 2. And that's the adults in the family....

I wish I had time to have a routine. I don't get home until 6pm and once I'm off work, I have no idea where I'll be. A friends house, dinner date w jody, relaxing at the house, trying to catch a football game or bball game. If I could stay home long enough, I would at least make my bed!

OK, I am weird too cause I have a labeled fridge! :) But everyone laughs at me when they open the fridge. I think it is quite helpful!! I also clean out the fridge on our kitchen day and put back any misplaced items! :)

Hey Rosie, I love your blog and thanks so much for the Christmas card. Love it! Also I was praying for you guys the other night about the different trials that you have been through. On another note love, love the label maker. I have one, but have not done labeled my fridge but I think that is a fabulous idea.

I´m crazy too :) I have labeled my three fridges as well. We don´t have such huge fridges in Germany so we have some more. Don´t want to go shopping twice a week! :) I would love to have a pantry next to my kitchen but we don´t have that in Germany either. So I have to store our stuff in the basement. Lots of runing up and down. Keeps you fit ;)
