National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day

In an attempt to bring you correct information, I have scoured the Internet looking for the correct date for National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day. Some websites say it's November 14th or 15th and some say the holiday was declared to be the third Wednesday in November by the Whirlpool Corporation (which would make it the 18th this year).

Regardless of the exact date, it's a good idea to clean out your refrigerator from time to time. Believe it or not, food can be clutter. Don't you have to make room for the Thanksgiving turkey and all the trimmings, anyway?

A while back I wrote an article about this very topic. If you're not sure where to start, check out my article, 6 Tips for Organizing Your Refrigerator.

Bonus Tip: Use a marker or pen to write the 'I opened it' date on food items you don't eat often. This will prevent many a stomach ache from food that's been around too long.
