6 Fridge Organization Tips You Can Try Today

2. WORK OUT WHERE EVERYTHING SHOULD GO

Did you know that actually knowing where to place items in your fridge is super important? Yup, me neither but turns out this is crucial in ensuring the prevention of cross contamination and spoilage of food. Home Solutions 101 shares a great info graphic below and also goes into so much more detail on their blog.

If you want a quick unabridged version:

  • Raw meat and seafood should be stored on the bottom shelf.
  • Avoid keeping milk in the fridge door -the temperature in the door fluctuates and typically isn’t cold enough to keep dairy products at their best.
  • Store food leftovers in  BPA free plastic tupperware or glass containers  Move them to the front of the fridge so everyone knows they need to be eaten…like now!

So now you have a rough idea of where things should go in your fridge, making sure food doesn’t go to waste should be much more easier …right?

 

3.BUY FRIDGE STORAGE BINS

Purchase several identical plastic or glass baskets from your local store. Use them to group similar items together i.e condiments in one and dairy products in another.

4 LABEL CONTAINERS AND DOORS

My little sister is training to be a chef and she says  everything in her work place fridge has to be labeled (expiry date and all). Whilst that might seem slightly time consuming to begin with, in the long run it saves you time. How? Because you know where to look for things.

 Head over to Clean and Scentisible to print out these labels..today (I’m not kiddding about the ‘today’ thing)

Labelling shelves and compartments  also avoids items getting trapped in the back of the fridge for months.
