Open the Door
By Sarah Ortiz
Open the door and you will find out a little more about me. Like the rest of my house, my refrigerator remains simplistic with the bare essentials, yet organized and easily accessible.
The top shelf contains thirst quenchers from the refreshing cold Aquafina to the H-E-B Vanilla Soymilk to the last bottles of Blue Moon and Shiner Blonde (personal favorites). The second shelf holds the blackberries and strawberries for my morning oatmeal or dipped in the Cool Whip that’s right behind the Aloe Vera, which feels best on sunburned skin. The juice box will stay on the shelf until my niece and nephew come over, and since I am not a chocolate fan, the single Nutty Butty bar will be there until my mother visits again. The third shelf contains the bread items (they last longer in the fridge) and half a bottle of Ragu Alfredo, which will go great with the Italian sausage and onion, on the bottom shelf, and some linguini.
Saving money tops the to-do list for a college student, especially one who lives alone and makes do with bare essentials, like breakfast items and sandwich things.
