That time I took a picture of my fridge...

....and pretended like I was an organized, got-it-together homemaker type? Yeah, that would be today.

I'm tired lately. I have big projects to finish like painting the laundry and pantry doors in the kitchen, grouting the last part of the back splash, and building the railing for my deck to name a few. Those things are overwhelming me. So in an attempt to do "something" every day, I've been organizing like a crazy woman. Last night's project almost didn't happen, but while I was waiting for my frozen pizza to cook, I actually got something done. I organized the fridge, and since I have a little girl, I used that as an excuse to use HOT PINK baskets.

These Pins are all over Pinterest:

I didn't get a before picture of the fridge, but here's a current picture of my freezer (gulp), and the fridge was similar (i.e. lots of piles, especially since my brother is staying with me):

That is a dried up carrot on the bottom, a left over gift from a certain cute little girl.

I'm pretty good about wiping down the shelves before I restock with new groceries, so it wasn't actually too dirty. I did take everything out and give it a good scrub down, though. Then I organized all the food by leftovers, pre-packaged foods, bread, milk, fruits, veggies, meats and cheeses, glass jars, and plastic containers (down low for you-know-who). I love, love, love the baskets! I am slightly obsessed with having an organized fridge. Cooking should not be stressful! Mine may not be quite as pretty as the original picture above, but it's organized and it's pink. :-)

Now I need to go back to Gibson's in Kerrville to get some more baskets for the freezer! What a lovely excuse to go see my Grandmother.

Doesn't it feel good to organize something? It always makes me feel like I've accomplished something. I love pink (2 daughters). Might have to give this a try!
