Lots of fruit and cheese. Your typical condiments, as well as butter. Cartons of milk with various - and sometimes scary - expiration dates (those things expand, too; it's scary). A couple of plastic containers I'm afraid to open.

There's also a can of Milwaukee's Best Light and a couple of candles in the back that may date back to the nineties.

I've read/seen it multiple times for years.

Here's the first link I found. Results seem mixed but marginal at best, with manufacturer FAQs highlighted.

We searched on "batteries freezer" and also looked at several battery manufacturer's web sites to find the answer to this question. The search results led to a very detailed frequently asked questions (FAQ) page about AA and AAA cell batteries, as well as its related battery myths page that provided a plethora of information about batteries.
According to these sources, storing batteries in the freezer (or refrigerator) will make them last longer, but it depends on what kind of battery you're using. And in the long run, it may not be worth the hassle.

For alkaline batteries (the most common kind of household battery), putting them in the freezer will extend their shelf life by less than 5%. And cold batteries can't be used immediately -- you have to wait until they've warmed up to room temperature first. If you need those batteries for a flashlight in an emergency, this could prove problematic. When stored at room temperature, alkaline batteries retain 90% of their power, and the average shelf life of alkaline batteries is five to seven years.

For NiMH and Nicad batteries (often used for electronics), storing them in the freezer might be more practical. These kinds of batteries lose their charge after a few days when kept at room temperature. But they'll retain a 90% charge for months if you store them in the freezer. Just like alkaline batteries, you'll need to wait until they've warmed up before using them. However, this isn't a problem when you need new batteries for your digital camera or other electronic gadget.

Battery manufacturers tend to agree. Kodak says "refrigeration is not necessary, nor is it recommended" and "freezing is not recommended" for its alkaline batteries. Duracell advises: "Do not refrigerate Duracell batteries. This will not make them last longer." Both recommend storing batteries in a cool, dry place.
And here is Snopes on the matter.

Semen. Lot's and lots of jizz in unlabeled milk bottles takes up half of the fridge, milk takes up the other half. I cannot tell you how much cereal I've had to throw away over the years.

Re: What's in our Fridge?

What kind of NiMH batteries lose their charge after a few days at room temp? They'd be worthless if that where true.
