According to the National Day Calendar, today is National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day. I guess this could a legit day to do just that. Not sure it's what I would call a celebration, though. More like a pain to clean it out.

We all (OK, maybe some of you have pristeen refrigerator insides) can relate to this issue. I know I do. But I'll admit that if something is going bad, like milk, I don't let it rot away, I get rid of it immediately.

If you have company over, for some reason a few make it their business to open your refrigerator door. Not sure exactly why, but if that's going to happen, I want mine to be clean, spoil free and not smelling like something died in there.

Now, if only that were the case at work. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. We have full size refrigerators on both floors of our radio stations, and the one nearest our studios is full of stuff I can't identify.

Normally, I don't use that refrigerator, but once in a while I bring in a drink and put in the fridge to keep cool. Problem is, our refrigerator is so full, I have no place to put one drink in there. There are bags upon bags of stuff on the shelves and the door shelves taking up all that real estate.

Nothing smells in there, but I have a feeling that whatever is in those bags, was placed there a long time ago and forgotten. I would bring up the subject to co-workers to clean out stuff they own and don't plan on eating anytime soon, but you know the saying "pick your battles." Yea, this is one battle I'm staying away from. Happy Refrigerator Cleaning Day.
