1. Rectangular Swivel Lazy Susan: Maximize Visibility with Ease
One of the game-changers in fridge organization is a rectangular swivel lazy susan equipped with suction cups for a secure hold on your fridge shelf. This versatile organizer moves forward, backward, and side to side, eliminating the need to shuffle items around to reach the back. By simply turning the lazy susan, you can effortlessly see and access all items, ensuring nothing gets lost or forgotten.
2. Under-the-Shelf Drawers: Unleash Hidden Storage Potential
Take advantage of unused space in your fridge by incorporating under-the-shelf drawers. These drawers come with a frame that grips the front and back of the shelf, providing stability, while the grooves on the drawers make pulling them out a breeze. This simple addition not only maximizes space but also creates additional storage for items that might otherwise be overlooked.
3. Clear Containers for Freshness and Accessibility
Investing in clear containers for your fruits and vegetables is a game-changer in maintaining freshness and accessibility. These containers allow you to see the contents at a glance, making it easy to locate specific items. The airtight lids help keep air out, ensuring your produce lasts longer and stays crisp. This not only reduces food waste but also encourages healthier snack choices for you and your family.
4. Strategic Bin Organization on Doors: Streamlining Condiment Chaos
The doors of your fridge often turn into a condiment chaos zone. To bring order, divide your condiments into bins based on usage. Allocate specific bins for salad dressings, sandwich condiments, marinades, and sauces/salsas. This not only streamlines your fridge’s door storage but also makes it easy to grab what you need without fumbling through an array of bottles. Apply the same principle inside the fridge by corralling like items in bins for quick and efficient access.
5. Corralling Jams and Jellies: Simplifying Breakfast Choices
Simplify your mornings by coralling jams and jellies in a designated bin. This white bin can be easily pulled out for quick access, preventing small jars from getting lost in the shuffle. By grouping similar items together, you create designated spaces for specific food categories, making your fridge more organized and user-friendly.
6. Free Printable Labels Make Finding Food Easy
I created some FREE printable fridge labels. Just click on the link below which will take you to the free labels. Use label printer paper which prints on one side and then you peel that off and have a sticky side on the back. Then attach those labels to your bins!
