Bringing some refrigerator organization to you today because mine was in serious need of help….
We are about to start demo on our kitchen….in fact, there is a new fridge sitting out in our garage….but I decided this mess could not wait! These items will have to be moved over to the new fridge, so they might as well be organized! I cannot WAIT to have two functioning refrigerators, as space is tight here!! Here are the steps I followed to get this space into shape!
Take EVERYTHING out, yes everything!
Wipe down all surfaces in your fridge. This will also force you to work quickly so items don’t spoil.
Sort and group all items.
There was no rhyme or reason in here before. I found I had the same things in several spots, which is probably how I ended up with multiples I didn’t need in the first place!! I threw away several things that were expired and grouped sauces, salad dressings, jelly, etc. so that I could find it all easily. I use one of my drawers for fruit and veggies and the other for meats and cheeses.
Use simple storage solutions.
Marie Kondo just came out with a beautiful line at The Container Store. I grabbed several pieces to help me organize the fridge.
These containers come with bamboo lids that are airtight, making them perfect for food storage. I also used this berry colander with draiage holes and an attached tray for strawberries and blueberries!
I also grabbed these labels!
Clean and WAY more functional!
It may sound crazy, but I feel much more calm opening the doors to my fridge now that everything has a place!
This project took about an hour from start to finish. I feel sure this refrigerator organization will save me time and money….and maybe a little of my sanity!
