Ah, the refrigerator: the center of your household; the provider of daily sustenance; the… you get the the idea. But your refrigerator, if improperly organized, can also be the cause of many a headache in your household, especially when cluttered and bursting at the seams.
If you can’t find the milk (and yes, you know you just bought a fresh carton), if you keep keep spoiling your cold cuts accidentally, and if your kids can’t reach their snacks without some adult-sized assistance, then these five tips will make your life just a little bit easier!
Keep your most frequently used items accessible: Make sure that the items that are most frequently used are stored in the front and the lesser used ones are kept at the back, this way you can quickly and easily reach the things you need.
Keep diet-wreckers and treats in the back: If you are on a diet plan then keeping your daily dose of fresh veggies, fruits, milk and protein accessible can help you stay on track. Chocolate and other such diet wreckers can laze around, hiding at the deep end of your fridge.
Ensure proper visibility of items: It’s nearly impossible to remember each and every item you’ve bought and when! The easier the contents of your fridge are to see, the less likely you are to end up with out-of-date and spoiled products, saving you money in the long run.
Adjust your fridge to suit your needs: Your refrigerator is most likely quite flexible, with adjustable shelves, so it’s best that you adjust them to suit what you are storing to ensure that you’re not left with any dead space.
Create a kids’ zone: Food products and items for your little ones should be stored on the lowest shelves so that they don’t have to struggle to find their favorite foods while you are busy somewhere. This will save you time, and give your kids a little independence!
