When a fridge gets full, it can be hard to keep track of all of the food items in it. You may have bought sour cream for a Mexican dish a month ago. Then you forgot all about it. Or maybe you brought home leftovers from brunch last weekend. But you never got around to eating it. That’s why it’s good to do a fridge check every now and then. Throw away items you no longer need, along with any items that have gone bad. This can help declutter your fridge. And it can also help you avoid getting sick.
