Fridge Organizers/ Storage
It's mesmerizing to look at well-organized, color-coordinated refridgerator . But actually, an organized fridge also saves time and money. If you know exactly what's inside, grocery shopping and mealtimes become way more efficient, with less food waste and unpleasant smells.
To get started, I recommend prioritizing the foods that you reach for most. From there, categorize items into groups and place them in clear containers (key word: clear) for a more uniform look. The rest is up you: Stock up on different storage solutions to help combat rolling soda cans, and overloaded snack drawers.
When placing items on shelves, consider what makes most sense for you — and for the food itself. Most people keep milk on the top shelf or in the door but it should go on the back of the bottom shelf where it's coldest. Same goes for eggs: Store eggs in their original cartons on middle or top shelves where temperatures are more consistent. Reserve the fridge door for condiments, butters, soft cheeses, and processed juices.
If you have young children, stick their go-to snacks at eye level so they can easily grab them without making a mess. You can reserve a special bin for each kid or throw all the snacks in one spot for people to pick from because, well, sharing is caring.
When you buy something new — a fresh gallon of milk, for example — rotate the older items to the front so that they can be used before the expiration date. Keep an eye – not just a nose — on leftovers: Toss fish after one to two days, meat after two to three days, and veggies or grains after five to seven days.
Before you start clearing your fridge, stock up on these must-have storage solutions and gadgets.
