New Habits for a Cleaner Refrigerator

By Donna Stark

I'm guessing there are several areas in your home that could stand a little more organization, but the one spot that would be most beneficial to tackle first is your refrigerator. When it comes to the place where you store your food, you want to make sure it is clean, and it's a lot easier to keep an organized refrigerator clean than one that is not! If you need some motivation to get started on yours, take a look at the tips below. They'll be sure to make this job easy and fun!

The Right Order

If you want to save yourself from eating or throwing away spoiled food, make sure you are following the rule of "first in, first out." First in, first out is a concept that ensures the oldest items in your refrigerator are going to be used first. Did you buy more cheese at the store even though you still have some sitting in the bottom drawer of your refrigerator? No problem! Just make sure you use what you already had at home first.

Clear Containers

How many times have you forgotten what you had because you packed your leftovers in containers you couldn't see through? And how much food have you needed to throw away because of that? Reduce your food waste and keep track of how many pork chops are left over by using only clear plastic or glass containers in your refrigerator.

Dedicated Shelves

If the thought of a missing avocado or bottle of dressing gets you worked up, you may want to group the same, or similar, items together. Dedicating a special place in your refrigerator for these different groupings will reduce the amount of time you spend searching for lost items and make it easier to keep track of what you have.

Smart Shopping

There is a certain thrill you can get while shopping at those big box stores, but really, where are you going to put all those perishables? Sometimes bulk shopping makes a lot of sense, but if your purchase leaves you with a gigantic jar of pickles sitting in your refrigerator for more than a year, it may not be the best way to spend your money. Instead, come home with only what you need. In addition to finishing the product, you will also be able to keep your refrigerator clean and clear.

New Habits for a Cleaner Refrigerator

Let's face it. Nothing looks better than a refrigerator that has all the yogurts lined up in a row, all the salad dressings in one location, and all the deli meat wrapped nice and tight. But looks aren't the only thing that matters here. Cleanliness is what you should be focused on, and by following the simple suggestions above, you can achieve that with your refrigerator in no time!
