Life Should Be Simpler

It’s been two and a half years and I still haven’t mastered organization of my side-by-side freezer/refrigerator. Rather than having regular shelves, the freezer has wire racks and is almost too narrow to hold a pound of bacon crosswise. Containers that are not in rectangular boxes just seem to slide right off of each other. Therefore, having a neat freezer or putting certain items in logical places is nearly impossible. And I may as well forget keeping my 22-pound Thanksgiving turkey there or storing more than one half-gallon flavor of ice cream. Fortunately I have a whole freezer in my garage!

But, every time I come across a problem like this, my first thought is, “It must have been designed by a man!” Granted, I do not own the largest version of this refrigerator/freezer because I am a one-person family. That doesn’t mean I should have to tolerate a messy unit.

I'm still trying to catch the frozen stuff before it slides out to crush my toes.
