Top 10 Items That Don’t Require Refrigeration
Keep your fridge more organized by not storing these items in there. Article by Windtraveler.

Step 1: Took the trash & recycling to the Dump/Recycling Center (that took a week+ to complete).
Clutter Resolution: Start a new habit of removing the recycling/trash weekly instead of every 6-8 weeks. Don’t let it pile over.
Step 2 : Found a better place to keep the recycling instead of in the garage. By practicing step 1 the trash won’t need to be stored in the garage either as long as there is room for it outside in the cans.
A Better Place to Keep the Recycling:
I googled ‘How to clean your garage’ and below are five easy steps. LOL. I also received a tip from a blog follower ‘Go Vertical‘! What you can’t see in the photos is that the walls are loaded with shelves to the ceiling but they are not the most organized since I no longer can really get to them. Before I can plan out how to organize the garage I need to be able to walk through at least one side of it and get the piles of stuff lower!
Step 1 is to take the trash and recycling out of the garage and keep it out of the garage for good. Need to find somewhere to keep it though.
Another photo of how Trash and Recycling clutters my garage:
My New Years Resolution is to clean my severely cluttered garage! This is a major project – not just a simple cleaning day. I got to thinking that there must be others who have endless clutter in their garages so I’m starting this Blog Category ‘Garage Project ‘ to share my tips (after I discover them).
Here are some photos of my garage as it is today.
Stringing Hot Peppers
It can take up to two weeks of drying time if hung up inside. Once they are totally dried you can push them together and keep them hung up somewhere or store in an onion bag. Some people store in a glass jar but its not necessary.
Using this method to dry hot peppers does make them a little stiff on the outside. They are great in chilies and hot sauce but not probably not the best method of drying if you want to keep your peppers soft.
