I took this as a challenge and inspiration to get my fridge in some kind of order.
(UPDATE -- Wouldn't you know that Organize With Sandy is doing a series on organizing your refrigerator and pantry this week as well?? How is that for timing LOL. You can read about my Pantry Organization Here. Now on to the fridge makeover!!)
I started by buying (except for the bottom tote. It was on my counter, but I bought a red tote to replace it!) some containers at Dollar Tree. I decided I wanted green in the fridge.
It wasn't too bad because I am running low on groceries. Payday is Friday and I will stock up then. Before, though, I got some organization going!! I also cleaned it up with some Shaklee as I went. I also labelled expiration dates with a Sharpie to see them better.
Here are the Afters.
Butter and anchovy paste and garlic in the butter compartment. Lemon and lime juices(and a lemon. They ended up in a blue container later), baking soda(which I later moved to the top shelf of fridge)orange marmalade and carob chips under. Milk(right now I have chocolate, lowfat and rice) next to that. On the bottom I have all my asian flavors together and then vinegars and other marinades, plus some grenadine syrup.
Cold snacks like olives and pickles in the basket, apple sauce on side(I use it for baking more than a snack)
Dairy shelf. Butter and yogurt in one container. Cheese in the other.
Egg and cookie dough shelf
Tote with sandwich fixings
Condiment Basket(I need a smaller bottle of ketchup)
I put all the citrus in a blue container.
I still want a couple containers to use in my vegetable and fruit drawers. Plus, I need to figure out what to do with this
I am thinking a few blue containers :)
The beauty of using containers is that I can take things out and move them around more easily to store whatever I need to :)
