what are your strange fridge habits?

I'll start the list off:

  • We keep beer in the crispers.
  • My husband once cooked and ate a ham that he had in his freezer SIX YEARS after the expiration date. For him, food has no expiration date; when it goes in the fridge, time stands still. I, on the other hand, will throw away anything that is over a week old, regardless of how it looks or smells. As you can probably guess, this creates a great deal of conflict in our house. My husband, whose attitudes towards wasting food are on par with someone who lived through the great depression, will fight me tooth & nail over emptying out the week-old leftovers from the tupperware. I will lose, and the tupperware will sit in the fridge for another month or two, untouched, & sprouting a thick beard of mold. Then, when the hubby isnt around, I don a hazmat suit, grab the tupperware-gone-petri dish with a pair of salad tongs, and throw the whole mess away.
  • For my entire married life, there has been a jar of capers in the fridge. Neither of us knows where it came from. We even brought it with us when we moved into our new house in 2005.
