I’m not really here to talk about how the fridge looks though, but rather the going on’s inside said fridge. For want of a better word, it’s a little chaotic in there. It’s not uncommon to find mouldy food tucked away in corners or out of date items buried under bags of fresh vegetables .

Which of course all then gets thrown in the rubbish bin.  Then I feel guilty, for being so wasteful. So I eat a tub of ice team (only just discovered behind a bag of opened frozen peas) to make myself feel better. Then I feel guilty again for my glutinous tendencies. Do you see where I’m going with this?

Better fridge organization is obviously the key here to saving me from poverty and a growing waistline. Here are a few organizing tips I found.. lets do this thing!

  1. Fridge magnet containers?! That is genius. I also like the idea of labelling stuff. Because I always do the food shop and unpack it all, the Mr comes home and always asks where things are (don’t know why he doesn’t just look). Labelling the shelves would save me the job of explaining where the apples are EVERY SINGLE TIME HE ASKS.

    I love the look of the jars, but probably won’t bother with that because what sort of guest is ever going to look in the fridge?
