Good morning. Over the holidays, we really let the fridge go. Between hosting and kids being out of school, it quickly went down hill. I decided to let it go and knew that I would do something about it in January. That time came and I emptied the entire thing. It felt wonderful to give it a good scrub, go through our items, and get a handle on the organization. I am sharing the update version with the three things that have made a huge difference for us.
A PEEK INSIDE
I didn’t run out and buy coordinating food and beautiful produce to make these photos magazine worthy. This is the real deal of what is in our fridge so you can get a good idea of how these products might work for you. Our drawers have most of our greens, eggs, and protein products for the week.
ONE | PLASTIC BINS
These plastic storage bins(4 for $19) are wonderful. They are a game changer in the fridge. They pull out like drawers and hold so much. One of them holds everything we need to make a sandwich which is so convenient. They would be nice on a pantry shelf, too. Great or school lunch prep or snacks.
*These are also great under the kitchen and bathroom sinks to hold cleaning supplies and necessities.
TWO | LAZY SUSAN
Where has this been my whole life? Oh my goodness! I love it so much I bought two and have them on the top two shelves. When I cleaned out our fridge I couldn’t believe how many expired items were hiding in the back of these shelves. No more! This Lazy Susan is designed to take advantage of more shelf space than a circular one. It suction cups to your shelf and it easily slides out and turns so you can see everything. Genius product.
THREE | AIR TIGHT CONTAINERS
We have had these air tight glass storage containers for years now. Still going strong! We love that they stack and you can see exactly what you have. I use them for food prep and for leftovers. They also stack very well in the cabinet when not in use. Easy to toss in the dishwasher and really a great way to stay organized.
TRIED & TRUE KITCHEN STORAGE
We have all of these and love the organization they provide. Highly recommend them all.
- ONE: Glass Containers – have used for years
- TWO: Plastic Bag Storage – wonderful way to stay organized
- THREE: Spice Jars – these make me happy every time I open the drawer
- FOUR: Tall Plastic Bins – use in our fridge and under sink
- FIVE: Short Plastic Bins – great for pantry, too
- SIX: Stacking Bowls – use multiple times a day
- SEVEN: Lazy Susan – we needed this years ago
I hope this is helpful if you are wanting to organize your fridge a bit more. So far so good over here and hoping to keep it looking like this for a very long time. Next up I will share how we organize some of our kitchen drawers and cabinets. Are you working on any of yours spaces?
