How to Organize Your Refrigerator
A clean house is a happy house – and a clean fridge is a happy fridge. That’s why organization is key, especially with all the holiday leftovers that can quickly and easily take over your fridge. So whether your fridge is in need of a quick tidy up or a desperate make-over, we found some great tips to help whip your fridge into shape – and stay in shape – long after the holiday leftovers are gone.
An organized refrigerator makes it faster and easier to make your grocery list, plan your meals, put groceries away, and do your meal prep. It will even help you save money!
The first step to getting your refrigerator organized is to take inventory of what you have. This is also a good time to give your refrigerator a serious cleaning and get rid of food that’s past its prime. Be sure to keep food safety in mind while you’re doing your inventory and cleaning. If you think that you might have food out of the refrigerator for longer than 2 hours, use coolers as temporary storage. Any food left out longer than two hours should be thrown away. If you find anything that has visible mold, smells bad, or is past the expiration date on the package, throw it away. If there’s something in there that you just aren’t going to use, throw it away
