My Favorite Hacks For Keeping My Fridge Clean And Organized
First, let’s take care of the kids. Although, this is great for adults too! Having a snack station bin lets the kids know what treats are theirs and they are easy to grab. Plus, you can steer them to healthier options. Keeping it in bins keeps the fridge clean and organized should anything leak.
Clear refrigerator organization bins will clearly define areas as well as allow you to see what is in the containers. Another great advantage to fridge organization bins is should something leak, it will leak within a container making clean up much easier.
Mason jars are great for storing fresh fruit, fruit salads, salads and so much more. They are great for keeping the fridge clean and organized as well as sells from other foods out of your salads.
This clear container will allow you to see your eggs but protect them from breakage, especially having a lid, unlike other containers. The lid also makes great use of space allowing stacking. The containers they come in will not protect them from breakage so switch that up.
Using a lazy susan in the refrigerator is genius. Allows you to keep commonly used items where you can get to them and simply spin for items that were in the back.
These dispensers will organize your canned beverages while allowing stacking. If you’ve ever put the entire box in, your often left with a mess where the box sticks to the shelf. This keeps the fridge clean and organized while allowing you to see what you have.
Use a dry erase board to track what is stored in your refrigerator and freezer and their expiration dates. Don’t forget to add those leftovers to your list!
Line your veggie crisper with these liners to help keep your drawers in the fridge clean and organized while they also extend the life of your product.
Use an egg carton to store your condiments upside down. It keeps the condiment at the top and helps keep the fridge clean and organized should it leak.
If you meal prep as I do, you may want to switch to glass meal prep containers. They seal, keeping foods fresher longer, keep other food smells out, and don’t leak. They also stack for better fridge clean and organized areas and allow you to see what is in them.
I personally love this one! So many dressings and condiments come out too much and too fast. Simply filling these condiment containers and using them stops overuse and waste as well as ease of storage.
One way to organize your freezer, prolong the life of foods and waylay messes is to seal foods. I have used a Food Saver for years to keep my foods fresher, keep smells from permeating foods, and keep messes at bay during freezing and thawing.
Use the freezer door and a dry erase marker (do NOT use a permanent marker) to keep track of what is stored inside.
Use plastic bins to keep the fridge clean and organized. These are found in Dollar Tree!
While this is an idea for a freezer drawer, I’ve done this in chest and upright freezers. Keeping it organized helps keep you from losing things because you don’t want to dig. Simply organized by type of meat, breakfast items, frozen snacks.
Use a wire shelf to add more storage to your top shelf.
Upright freezers have racks that you can hang bags using binder clips which gives you added space because the shelf becomes free. Also keeps your bags closed when you’ve opened and partially used a bag. This method is great if you have the open air racks in a pantry as well.
Add an Eat Me First Bin so everyone knows what is expiring soon.
Shelf liners allow you to easily wipe up spills while protecting your glass shelves from breakage. They are reusable as well so less costly in the long run.
