|After a good cleaning and organization|
I got really annoyed every time I needed to get something and told Mj he needs to organize this fridge. Not because I didn't want to. I've done it before...and look how that turned out. I just thought it might be something that he'd maintain if it was his project and he did it himself. Well, not surprisingly that didn't happen and I finally had enough. I got tired of cramming things in, wrenching things out and digging around whenever I needed something. Our refrigerator is a good size, we don't even have THAT much food and there is no reason that everything shouldn't fit. I announced that I was fed up and couldn't take it anymore. Not only was this refrigerator getting re organized but it's dirty and it needs a good cleaning. I took everything out including the one removable shelf and the drawers. Mj washed those out while I went about scrubbing down the shelves. One by one I put every single item back and a miracle happened. Everything fit with room to spare. We'd only removed a few items and trashed them so basically the same amount of food that was crammed in there before now fit with no problem.
That very night Mj threw an onion in the door after he used it. "Why did you do that?" I asked. "I don't know." He moved it. Then, he caught himself as he was about to put the lunch meat in some random place. Progress. I'm hoping that actually seeing how non functional our refrigerator had become will get him to see how the simple act of putting stuff back where you got it can make a big difference over the long term. I can always hope right?
