Week 6:     February 3rd - February 9th **Freezer/refrigerator**  This is the place where we don't think of organizing until we go to open it?  In my house it's a good idea to wear steel-toed boots when you open up the freezer.  Never fails - something that resembles a frozen rock always seems to fall out when we open the door.  Don't get me wrong,  I have good intentions, I buy my meats in bulk - my kids love hot pretzels, ice cream, and of course things like french fries and mozzarella sticks.    I think of my freezer as the abyss - once it goes in - it seems to disappear :)  This week's challenge is to empty out your refrigerator & freezer.  Clean it and grabs some bins/baskets - whatever fits your needs.  On my Internet travels I found a website that sold "refrigerator coasters"  as I thought this was a unique idea, my mind instantly went to those rubbermaid shelf liners (the rubber feeling waffle design one that glasses grip to in your cabinets) I think I may purchase them and line the insides of my door baskets and vegetable bins.  My idea is to take some wax paper. make a pattern by etching the wax paper to make a template, trace it onto the Rubbermaid shelf liner and cut it out.  Another suggestion I came across is to use a "Lazy Susan" in the frig to house items you use frequently. This contains those items and stops knocking over and moving items to get what you need.  Now I use "Lazy Susan's" in my kitchen & bathroom cabinets, just never gave it a thought to use inside my refrigerator.
