10 Easy Hacks To Organise Your Fridge

By Laura Anderson
A well-organised fridge is important for efficient storage and will also help you to minimise food wastage and save money. Here are 10 hacks for ultimate fridge organisation.

1. Keep like with like

Containerise like items and food inside baskets or use clear containers so you can quickly see what’s inside.

2. Label all compartments

You want each member of your household to know where to find things, and where to return them once finished with. This will help ensure healthier eating habits.

3. Keep raw meats on the bottom shelf

Meat should be kept inside a plastic container to prevent unwanted drips inside the fridge. Store these containers on the bottom shelf of the fridge.

4. Use the door of the fridge smartly

Store frequently used items that you use most frequently, such as milk, cheese, butter and so on, in the door of the fridge so these items are easily accessible.

5. Use fridge crisper drawers

Consider investing in fridge crisper drawers to keep fresh produce fresher for longer.

6. Line fridge crispers

Use non-slip matting to line fridge crispers and avoid bruising of produce.

7. Store leftovers inside glass containers

Use lids and label with masking tape – and be sure to include the date that you stored the produce on the outside of the glass container.

8. Store condiments in the door of the fridge

If your fridge door does not have enough space, consider using a lazy Susan – these tools are a great way to store condiments and allow you to see everything at a glance.

9. Rotate food regularly

Before any shopping trip to the grocery shops, be sure to move older food that is at the back of the fridge towards the front to ensure you use it sooner and to avoid food wastage.

10. Regularly clean the fridge

Always wipe out your fridge before your weekly food shop to keep it clean. Once a month at least, take everything out and do a deep clean of the fridge.
