Do you struggle to fit all of your food in your refrigerator? You’re not alone. Most of us don’t have a real organization system for our fridge. Luckily, Speedy Refrigerator Service is here to help you maximize your storage space. Just follow these tips:
Rearrange your shelves.
Most refrigerators come with adjustable shelves – use these to your advantage to fit oversized or oddly-shaped items. You most likely buy the same types of food more often than not, so taking the time to rearrange your shelves once can make storage easier for years to come.
Opt for square, stackable containers.
Many of us utilize containers to store leftover food, but did you know that circular ones waste room because they don’t have corners? To maximize storage space in your refrigerator, use square or rectangular containers which can easily be stacked atop one another.
Know what doesn’t need to be refrigerated.
The easiest way to store more food in your refrigerator is by making more room. The easiest way to do this is by removing food which doesn’t need to be there. Many foods, such as bread and apples for example, are commonly stored in the refrigerator when they don’t need to be. Check out this list to see if you are keeping unnecessary foods in your fridge.
Regularly clean out your refrigerator.
This goes hand-in-hand with the last point about making more room. If you aren’t routinely cleaning out your refrigerator, you could be wasting space by storing items that have already expired. A good refrigerator cleaning routine involves removing all food from the fridge and wiping down the interior. Replace the food while throwing out any items that may have spoiled since your last cleaning.
