How to Organize Your Fridge

Keep Your Fridge Fresh by Organizing It Better

Who says you can't start resolutions before the year is over? We've compiled a list of 51 foodie resolutions to check off, including this helpful tip.

Guilty of losing items in your fridge only to find them months later growing fur? Part of avoiding food from growing the all-too-familiar mold is by making sure your fridge is cleanly organized and every item is in plain view. You don't need a fancy fridge to make this happen, but rather take a look at this table that will help you organize your fridge by shelf.

MAIN FRIDGE
SIDE DOOR
On the top shelf, which is usually the tallest, place bottled beverages and a filtered water jug. On the side door's top shelf, place butter and blocks of cheese.
On the second shelf, stack leftovers in plastic containers on one side. On the other side, store deli meat, bread, and eggs in their original container. On the second side door shelf, group small condiments together by type, i.e. jellies and mustards.
On the bottom shelf, store milk, yogurt, sour cream, and cottage cheese on one half. On the other side, store all raw meats. On the third side door shelf, group international condiments like Italian sun-dried tomatoes, olives, and Asian curry pastes.
In the low-humidity drawer, divide and organize fruit by type. Avoid storing dense fruit like apples on top of delicate fruit like berries. In a fourth side door shelf, group larger jars together by type, such as bouillon pastes, miso pastes, nut butters, and pickles.
In a high-humidity (crisper) drawer, divide and organize vegetables by type. Avoid storing dense veggies on top of delicate greens. In the tallest bottom side-door shelf, place tall bottles of condiments including ketchup and soy sauce and any other large juice bottles or nondairy milks.
