I just did the most thorough refrigerator cleanout I think I've ever done. I had no idea that the shelves could be disassembled so thoroughly. I was also reminded, as I am every time I clean the fridge, that many of the shelves slide forward. I don't believe I have taken advantage of that feature a single time since we bought the appliance.
Lots of suspicious jars of food went in the trash. I married two partial bottles of ketchup and threw away some horseradish sauce that expired in 2008. I kept a random selection of really horrible beer despite my better judgment. I keep thinking someone is going to drink it, but if history is any guide, I'm very wrong about that.
Before I did the fridge purge, I tidied up two of our lower sets of cabinets that were so messy that either the doors wouldn't close or things would fall out when you opened them. I even fixed the rail of a sliding shelf in one of the cabinets, if you count propping the rail up with extra slate tiles as "fixing" it.
So now I'm one step closer to being able to make candy and other holiday goodies. And I'm tired. But it's a good tired.
