Clean Out Your Fridge Day

November 14 is National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day. Check the nooks and crannies of your fridge - waaaaaaay in the back. Is anything growing there that shouldn't be? How about a container of left over grapes or apple slices that have shriveled past the point of recognition? Find the grossest thing you can and post it in the comments below - then throw it out already!

Here's a good article on how to best organize your fridge. Read it here.
