Refrigerator Space Issues--what MUST be Refrigerated?

Funwithfood | Jul 26, 200605:59 PM     39

After experiencing a 60 hour power outage (horrible!), I'm cleaning out my refrigerator and garage freezer.

What struck me, is when I discarded the perishables, the fridge was still quite full.

What I mean is, between the open jars of olives, sun-dried tomatoes, peppers, pickles, maple syrup, myriad of condiments, salad dressings, Rose's lime syrup & grenadine, etc., there is little room for anything else!

What can I either move to the pantry or freezer to make my refrigerator more "user-friendly"?
