Organization may seem impossible. Refrigerators are often jam-packed and chaos reigns supreme, and tidying up the shelves can sometimes seem like an impossible task. With this guide, you can transform your refrigerator from a messy clump of food into a well-organized system.
Step 1. Take everything out of the refrigerator
You must start with a completely empty refrigerator. Throw away any unused or expired products.
Step 2. Put butter, cream cheese on the refrigerator door
Usually closed sections are located at the top of the door, if your refrigerator does not have such, simply put food on the top shelf of the door.
Step 3. On the remaining floors of the door, place the sauces, salad dressings, condiments, and cheese
For example, chili sauce, salad dressing, ketchup, and cheddar cheese.
Step 4. Place drinks on the largest shelf inside the refrigerator, as they are the tallest items to store in the refrigerator
They are usually stored on the topmost shelf inside the refrigerator.
Step 5. There should be two drawers at the bottom of the refrigerator
Place vegetables such as lettuce, herbs, tomatoes and peppers in one. Place meat that does not need to be frozen in another drawer, such as sandwich meat, sausage, pepperoni, sausage. If your family doesn't make sandwiches or sandwiches, use the second drawer for fruit (if you keep fruit in the refrigerator), or another piece of vegetables.
Step 6. Now lay out the rest of the food
You still have yogurt, sour cream, eggs and other similar products. Put them on one shelf. Use the rest of the shelves to store other foods and food.
Step 7. In the freezer, keep ice cream, meats, frozen foods, and other food organized
- You can free up one shelf at a time if pulling everything out at once seems too tedious for you.
- Store similar vegetables together: meat, dairy products, fruits, vegetables.
- Remember that all shelves in the refrigerator can be pulled out and their height can be adjusted. You can even pull out and remove shelves that you don't need.
- Lay out the food in the way that suits you, put frequently used food in the front, and rarely used food against the wall.
- Get the restless thoughts out of your head.
- Raw meat should be stored on the lowest shelf to prevent its juice from dripping onto the finished food and poisoning it.
- Clutter will come back pretty easily if you don't keep the system organized. Always put the product back in its place.
- It's easy to get confused. If this happens to you, stop and take a few deep breaths.
