Want an organized fridge? These tips will help you get rid of the clutter in your fridge!
An organized fridge is more than just for the nice look. It also helps you waste less food and eat healthier. This month the Clear the Clutter Challenge focus is all about decluttering and organizing the fridge. After summertime with the kids home, I definitely needed to do a deep dive into cleaning out our fridge!
Organized Fridge Tips
Remember, as with any organization of the home, you have to do what works best for your family and your space. Our current fridge is old (and falling apart honestly) so we are working with smaller space. Read through these tips and then apply what fits with your family.

Clean out your fridge before you put new groceries in it.
This is such a game changer. Usually before I head to the store, I will take Method Antibacterial Spray and wipe down the insides. This is also helpful as I can see if something expired and then add the item to my grocery list. P.S. Grab your own Method Antibacterial Spray along with other great cleaning supplies here!
Prep food and use containers to store.
I have shared before that I am a big fan of prepping food when we get home from the grocery store. This is especially helpful with vegetables! Place the veggies in bins with water to help maintain freshness. Change out the water every few days.
Bins can help contain smaller items.
While we do not usually have any cans in our fridge, I love the idea of these can holders. I also am going to incorporate a basket to contain snack items such as string cheese. Using a clear container for yogurts can help everything stay together.
Store less used items towards the back.
I really love these tips for where to put things in the fridge. We recently adjusted the shelves in our fridge to allow for more space on the top and bottom for taller items.
Helpful Products for an Organized Fridge
A Lazy Susan is perfect to put on a shelf in the fridge to hold items such as sour cream, salsa, cottage cheese, etc.
While a lot of fridges have egg containers in them, you can usually use that space for something else. I recently saw these reusable egg containers and LOVE them!
Clear Plastic Bins
You can use stackable bins such as these or even clear plastic shoe boxes.
I am excited to continue to work on my fridge this month. Even though it may seem like a simple thing, having an organized fridge really does help our family thrive. When we create and use easy systems in our homes, we are helping things run smoother!
Here’s my fridge below! All cleared out and ready for fresh groceries! I am excited to add some new bins to it! Stay tuned for an updated look!
