I normally give the fridge a bit of a once over every Thursday as it is my grocery shopping day. I throw out any leftovers, check use by dates and straighten things up so it is easy to unpack the groceries when I get home. I normally hate this job but the task was so much easier today as I have added some nifty roll out shelves to help organise things. I thought I would share them with you if you too are searching for a way to make this task easier.
So this is a pic of our fridge.
For a long time I have used three small pull out shelves on our top shelf to contain our spreads and condiments. They were very helpful as I no longer had to shuffle jars early in the morning to find the Vegemite or strawberry jam for toast.
Two weeks ago I found that Howards Storage World stocked deeper and wider roll out shelves as well. I purchased the medium size to store our yoghurt. Such a great idea as we all eat different yoghurt and they were beginning to take over a little bit.
And I got the largest to store our meat.
I particularly like the idea of this meat shelf as I am paranoid about cross-contamination as I keep my meat above my fruit and veg.
Some other containers I use in the fridge to keep things neat are clip-lock containers. I use these for everyday food items like cheese rather than letting them roam around in their bags. I also use these to store cut up fruits like watermelon and pineapple.
I also swear by Tupperware in the fridge too. When I buy cold cuts or olives from the farmer’s markets, I put them in Clear Mates to make sure they stay fresh.
I also use Fridge Smart containers to hold fruit and veg that does not store neatly in the crisper.
I swear by using containers to organise in the fridge. They made things easier to find and keep clean. The whole fridge looks neat. Interestingly, they discourage our 3-year-old rummaging and making a mess when he is hungry. He seems to ALWAYS be hungry. Check back when both my boys are teenagers and I will show you how I use containers to organise my coldroom!
To see how I organise my freezer, have a look at this post.
