In case you missed it, I’ve been in a spring cleaning mood! From my drawers to my kitchen, and now my fridge, there’s nothing like a clean and organized home, am I right? So, if you love a tidy house and can’t resist a good clean out, then you’ll love today’s post! Here are a few ways I like to organize my fridge as well as some tips for making it look Pinterest worthy and functional.
In case you missed it, I filmed this Reel on exactly how organized my fridge!
TIPS FOR ORGANIZING YOUR FRIDGE
- Start with a clean and empty fridge
- This is a really great time to throw away anything that you’re not going to eat anymore, expired, etc.
- Forget about the nice aesthetic, huge refrigerators you see on social media and how others organize their fridge
- Organize it how it makes the most sense to you and your lifestyle — obviously you can refer to social media and Pinterest on how others organize a certain category if you feel stuck on what to do
- I’m not a huge believer in using containers or organizers for EVERYTHING in your fridge because it honestly sometimes takes up way more space. But, what I found is that there are certain things where this would make sense, for example:
- Eggs – keeping them in something like this is a no brainer to keep your eggs protected, I love the one I featured in my Reel because you can just grab what you need and each row refills itself for next time.
- Small items like yogurt cups, snack packs, cheese, etc. should go in is own container or something like this to keep it from going all over the place
- Sauce bottles, salad dressings, jams, peanut butter, and any jars in general are easier to access from a lazy Susan so you can easily reach for what you need without knocking the rest down
- Commonly used fruits and vegetables — this isn’t a dire need but I find it just easier to reach for these foods if they’re nicely displayed (which helps you eat healthier which is a win to me!)
- As I mentioned, organize your fridge with what makes the most sense to you. I could provide you a layout of how my fridge is but it’s not a one size fits all so it really comes down to taking inventory of the common things you have in your fridge and organize it accordingly
- I always like to leave room for a “flex” space where we store leftovers or any rotating item we may have in the fridge for that week
