AIBU by putting everything in the fridge?

I know it sounds bizarre but I like to think I run a tight ship and demand that the following stays in the fridge and find it very hard to control my temper when they are left in the cupboard:

Tomato sauce
Garlic bulbs
Potatoes
Onions
Jars of condiments

Does anyone else do this?

Potatoes? That must take up half the fridge! I keep all sauces in the fridge but not garlic or potatoes

Whatever floats your boat. Personally I don't live in a house so warm that things like garlic significantly degrade if left at room temperature for a few days.

Do you really lose your temper if someone puts the ketchup in the cupboard?

Onions and potatoes and garlic? Nope, not in the fridge.

Potatoes especially sweet shouldn't really be in the fridge, everything else your not unreasonable

Onions, potatoes and garlic go off quicker in the fridge.

Condiments can be kept wherever you like (within reason).

I'm the same.

Potatoes should not be refrigerated.

Other than that, I'm with you, though I wouldn't bother getting angry.

Onions potatoes and garlic are not in fridge. The other stuff is OK out of fridge too unless you are keeping them for months.

Being angry about it that's a bit odd.

I'm the same as you OP, everything in. I like cold ketchup especially grin

DaisyQueen Fri 07-Apr-17 21:38:02

The only thing on your list I would keep in the fridge would be an onion after I have used half of it. Everything just gets put in cupboards but I might start putting things in the fridge so it looks like I actually have food in it for more than 2 days a week!

I refridgerate a lot of stuff that other people seem to raise an eyebrow at. Not for perishable reasons, but because I like the taste of foods either freezing cold or piping hot and nowt in between.

However:

find it very hard to control my temper when they are left in the cupboard

😐

If my husband lost his temper because I put the brown sauce in the cupboard I would not be impressed.

Do what you want but it's unfair to impose your oddities on others and lose your temper because you're going against the storage suggestion.

Your temper issue is far more disturbing that any question about unfridged condiments.

ConfusedDotty Fri 07-Apr-17 21:40:47

You have a temper that should not be brought about so easy.

LettuceMash Fri 07-Apr-17 21:40:52

You demand and find hard control temper over this?

Okaaaaay.

I do nt keep any of those things in the fridge. Onions, garlic and potatoes have become staples precisely because they are easily stored and we're long before refrigeration existed.

Similarly ketchup and condiments were developed as ways to preserve their fruit/veg ingredients, there's no need to refrigerate them.

LemonyFresh Fri 07-Apr-17 21:43:07

Any sauces/condiments MUST be put in the fridge once opened.

Before they're opened, cupboard is ok.

stoopido Fri 07-Apr-17 21:46:57

I don't like cold ketchup so this doesn't go in the fridge. I never put potatoes in the fridge because they don't seem to cook well.
I always put onions in the fridge they last ages then, they do not go off more quickly! .
Garlic not in the fridge.
Jars of condiments - fridge.

I put all my tinned food in fridge also mainly to make the fridge look fuller

Wolfiefan Fri 07-Apr-17 21:49:45

Onions, potatoes and garlic should be kept out the fridge.
The rest is fine.
Run a tight ship. Unclench.

kierenthecommunity Fri 07-Apr-17 21:51:51

garlic yes, to stop it sprouting. (although I tend to buy frozen garlic now as I never used it quickly enough before it went stale)

some condiments yes, like pickles and mustard, although not sauce

a bit shock at 'running a tight ship' sounds a barrell of laughs at yours grin

If you store your onions I fridge they don't make you cry when it comes to peeling/chopping
