Searching for June Cleaver

W.W.J.D.: What would June do?

The October issue of Real Simple has an excellent article in “The Guide” section called “The Secret Life of Your Fridge.”  So far, it has been the most helpful read of my young, bachelorette-pad inhabiting life.  Following a few easy steps, I was able to completely reorganize my fridge to maximize energy and keep my food fresh.  I also learned some fun facts – for instance, did you know that you can keep cologne and eau de toilette in your refrigerator to retain their scent? (Don’t get too excited… keep your perfumes at room temperature!).
