28 Days Purging Series: Day 2

Welcome to day two of this purging series. Today we are going to be doing the freezer.
If you missed yesterday’s Day 1 you can find it here.

Our goal is to spend 20 minutes or less on this task. Throughout this series there may be tasks that only take 5-10 mins and that is great and gives so much motivation to keep on with the tasks in the days ahead.

With the freezer it depends what kind of freezer you have, if it’s upright and side by side of your fridge the process will be similar to what we did in our day one The Fridge. If you have the bottom drawer style freezer or the top door one it will be slightly different in how I am explaining it in steps, but the process will be to declutter & reorganizing. No matter which you have it should not take long.

If your freezer is the side by side, you can start at the top shelf area and work your way down and then to the door. If your freezer in the kitchen doesn’t need to be done and you have a deep freezer or another kind you can choose to do those instead. Organize items as you go thru putting them in order &/or in their correct spot. If you have a top or bottom freezer I would take everything out and put items back in once sorted. This will make it easier for you to know exactly what you have in there. It will also make it easier to regroup the items you want together. This should not take long enough where items can defrost.
Start with the items that can’t be out long like ice creams, popsicles, etc… You want to look for items that have been there way too long. For freezable meals (frozen pizza, microwave dinners, chicken nuggets), check the expiry date. For meat and fish, look for items that have been there too long or have freezer burn. Depending on how long they have been there, if you decided to keep it then insure you keep it on the top or/& front so they can be used. You can also look for items that you bought, but didn’t enjoy and are still in there, now is the perfect time to get rid of them and make space for things you use. Tip: I have a deep freezer in my garage, before every shopping trip I go thru that freezer and move what I need into my kitchen freezer so I am not one, over buying and two keep a good rotation. Also, when putting away items I have bought I make sure to put it at the bottom &/or back of the freezer and move what was there forward &/or top. This insures that I am using “the older” ones (which is not really old but you know what I mean).

A great organization tip, if you need some structure in your freezers, I use plastic bins from Dollarama, items I do not keep in their boxes can be put in them. It’s organized and easy to find. My freezer has sliding bins which is where I sort my fish and my meats. I have one shelf where breakfast items are stored and the other for things like frozen vegetables, fruit, fries, etc.. Bins work even better for those bottom drawer freezers & top freezers. It’s a great affordable way to have an organized freezer. You can also find similar ones at Dollar Tree.

Also, during these daily tasks for our purging series if there is a day where it does not apply to you or that place does not need it you can select another area to do with the same idea of 20 minutes or less.

Comment below and let me know if you took part in today’s task. I am loving these tasks, keeping it simple without the overwhelming feelings is great motivation.
