How to Organize Your Fridge: Tips and Tricks



An organized fridge not only helps keep your food fresh for longer, but also makes it easier to find what you need when cooking. Here are some tips and tricks to help you efficiently organize your fridge.

  1. Clean your fridge regularly

Before you start organizing your fridge, make sure to clean it thoroughly. Remove all items and wipe down the interior and exterior with a damp cloth. This not only helps keep your fridge clean and odor-free, but also ensures that food is stored properly.

  1. Use storage containers

Use transparent plastic containers or baskets to separate different types of food, such as dairy, fruits, and vegetables. This will make it easier to find what you need and prevent foods from getting mixed up. Label the containers to identify what’s inside.

  1. Organize by category

Keep similar foods together. For example, keep dairy and beverages on one shelf, and fruits and vegetables on another. This makes it easier to see what you have available and ensures that foods are stored properly.

  1. Store perishable foods properly

Keep perishable foods, such as meats and seafood, in closed containers or separate plastic bags from other foods. This reduces the risk of cross-contamination and ensures that foods last longer.

  1. Check expiration dates

Regularly check expiration dates on foods. Discard any foods that have expired or look strange. This helps avoid consuming spoiled food and ensures that you’re consuming fresh and safe foods.

  1. Adjust temperatures

Check the temperature settings of your fridge and freezer. Make sure the fridge temperature is between 1 and 5 degrees Celsius and the freezer temperature is below 18 degrees Celsius. This will help keep your foods fresh for longer and prevent foods from freezing or spoiling.

  1. Organize the fridge door

Keep frequently used items on the fridge door, such as condiments, juices, and milk. This will prevent you from having to open and close the fridge several times to find what you need.

With these tips and tricks, you can efficiently organize your fridge and ensure your foods remain fresh and safe. Make sure to periodically review your fridge to ensure it stays organized and clean.
