Kitchen Freezer Clean Out: Shelves #1 and #2

I have a lot of freezer space here.  We have one deep freezer chest in our guest room and another in our kitchen.  We also have a freezer in our refrigerator in the kitchen and in the refrigerator in our garage.  Because I have all of that freezer space, I tend to neglect my kitchen refrigerator freezer.  Junk Food just seems to pile up.

I recently saw that The Frugal Girl is doing a freezer challenge where she is trying to eat up all the odds and ends, and I decided that is the kind of challenge I also need to do.

Just to give you an idea why, here is part of the inside of my kitchen refrigerator freezer:

See?  I can’t find anything in there.

So, I pulled out all of the items from the bottom two shelves, and this is what I have:

  • 3 popsicles,
  • frozen juice cubes for smoothies (which I won’t be using up because my blender that I bought at a garage sale 20 years ago just bit the dust.  I’m still mourning.),
  • about 1.5 cups of blueberries,
  • 1.5 bags of green peppers
  • 1/2 bag of green beans,
  • 1/2 bag of peas,
  • 1/2 bag of riced cauliflower,
  • 10 homemade turkey sausage,
  • 1 bag of collard greens,
  • few slices of raisin bread,
  • 4 raisin cinnamon bagels,
  • 1 bag lima beans,
  • chicken bones for broth (in the tin foil),
  • 2 burritos,
  • chili from 2015!!!!!! (I wanted to throw that away, but my mom said she’d eat it),
  • 1 pkg. beef jerky,
  • 1/2 bag of chicken broth cubes,
  • 1/2 bag of shredded chicken,
  • granola crumbs,
  • small container of leftover smoothie

Over the next week, I’ll try to use as many of these random items as I can so I can clean out the freezer.

I also had frozen bananas mixed in there (about 20 to 25), but I’m in no hurry to eat those.  We’ll use those up for smoothies (whenever I get a new blender), muffins and bread.
