How to Organize Your Refrigerator

Having an organized refrigerator can complete an organized house. When you open the doors to reveal clean shelves and neatly sorted foods, you can pull a great meal together. It might seem intimidating, but with the right tools, your fridge will be clean just a few hours. Here are the best steps to cleaning your refrigerator.

Toss the trash
Take everything out of the fridge and as you do so, decide if you should throw each away. As a general rule of thumb; if you have not used the product in the past year, also throw away. Once the fridge is empty, wipe every surface down with a multi-purpose cleaner to make your fridge look bright and brand new.

Protect your drawers
Line each shelf and drawer to make the cleanup of soft fruits and vegetables much more manageable. The Container Store recommends using a heavy-duty, water-resistant shelf liner to give your fridge the best protection.

Plan for jars
Group all of the condiments, salad dressings, and sandwich fixings based on their category. After this, take some time to figure out where these will fit best in your fridge. See if you can fit these jars into the organizers in your door. This leaves more room for the bulkier items in the main area of your fridge.

Refill the Fridge
Put all of the food back into the fridge! Create a system to stay organized. Grouping your foods by categories. Snacks should be put in the front for easy access. To save on space, stack bottles or cans. See what works best for you and your home to suit your family’s needs.
