The Friday Fluff Up: Cleaning Out The Freezer

  • Sumo


The days of accomplishing an amazing craft or huge project in my home may never return (at least through four more weeks of summer), so I’m still sticking with a few tiny accomplishments each week at our house.  Yesterday I managed to clean my oven (thanks to all your great tips along with a brillo pad & some elbow grease!), as well as get my freezer cleaned out . . . WOOHOO!


I know, it’s really, really sad when tackling those two monsters is all that exciting, but if you have three little monsters running around your house, I’m sure you understand. 🙂



Here’s what the freezer looked like before . . .



And here’s the after picture . . .


What was most exciting was finding lots more food in there than I realized I had, including a ton of bananas perfect for banana bread making, as well as a few loaves of bread dough to make these Almost Homemade Cinnamon Rolls So, here’s what I baked this morning to clean out that freezer a little more . . .


We have just a regular side by side freezer to store all of our stockpile in, but we seem to do okay without a large freezer. . . I just can’t justify the expense (and space!) that a larger freezer would bring.  Even us passionate penny pinchers can make it just fine without a huge storage space for frozen food!

Have you done any organizing or a fun craft project at home this week? I’d love to hear about it, so leave a comment to share!  See more previous Friday Fluff Up projects and ideas . . . and Happy Fluffing!

    Something happened with our freezer and I lost all my stockpile. Today. 🙁

    • Oh nooooooo, Lori! That happened during our tornadoes here, and I think it made me really consider how much I keep in the freezer. Some insurance companies will pay for the amount of food in your freezer, it’s probably not worth the claim, but if you have a huge stockpile it might be worth looking into! (I’m so sorry!!!)

  2. on that note….VERY important to have one of these…. a inexpensive FREEZER ALARM can save you SO much heartache! a MUST HAVE for any stockpiler!
