Freezer Clean Out

So, for my Thursday (March 21st) project I defrosted my freezer.  Sorry I didn't take a before picture, but here are the after ones.  It was 20 degrees out, so it was a nice cold day so my frozen stuff would stay frozen.  Defrosting the freezer is not a favorite thing to do.  Not so much because of how difficult it is, just that it takes some time.  My freezer has a tube out of the bottom so the water can drain out.  I also put a board underneath the front so it would be tilted back and drain through the hole, and not out the front.  I also turned on a space heater and cracked the door.  It took about 6 hours to totally defrost, about 20 minutes to wipe out and about 1/2 hour to move food out and back in.

I love how clean it looks now.  I also brought in a couple of wire shelves--it really doubles the space on those shelves

Here is the door.

Another view of the whole freezer.

Top shelf--prepared meals and my frozen diced peppers.

Shelf 2- Ice cream, ice pops, frozen fruit and several meatloaves.

Shelf 3 - My bin of cheese, beef sticks, bread, cookies, frozen raw rolls, frozen raw cinnamon rolls and below is my meat drawer.

Happy cleaning!  ~Deborah
