Cleaning & Organizing

These Ref Organization Videos Will Inspire You to Clean Out Your Fridge

Organize your food by how quickly you consume them!


Growing up, one of my favorite shows to watch was MTV Cribs. Aside from seeing the huge houses of my favorite celebs, I especially looked forward to the segment where they’d open their fridge and we’d all pretend to be surprised at how well-organized and well-stocked it was. Since then, it’s always been my dream to eventually have my own place with a fridge that looks like it’s been professionally organized, too. (Yes, still working on making that dream come true!)

For now, though, what I can do is take notes from these ultra-satisfying ref/fridge organization videos so I could at least apply them to the fridge I share with my huge family.

Organize your food by how quickly you consume them

For example, milk, yogurt, and some sauces are things we tend to reach for the most and consume the fastest, so you should place them where you can easily get them out.


Repacking your food? Make sure to place the expiration dates on your labels, too

We already know that repacking your food to smaller containers will help you save space. But don’t forget to label each one and place the expiration dates, too. Utilize resealable plastic bags for food you want to freeze—you can keep washing these until they're no longer fit to be used.
