Refrigerators are definitely one of the best appliances we have in our home; what would we even do without them? They store the majority of our food and ensures that it lasts longer than it would at room temperature. The problem is, sometimes it can get a little messy. How do we solve this mess issue? A few simple tricks can change the entire look of your fridge and make your life significantly easier.

1. Label Refrigerator Door

Our fridge doors can get awfully messy between grabbing the barbeque sauce as we race out to flip our steaks on the barbeque and the kids needing ketchup for just about every meal.

To keep things tidy, label each shelf so every family member knows where each food product goes. If everything has a place, it will help your fridge door stay tidy!

2. Mini Pull Out Drawers

It can be difficult to find a place for all those smaller food products when it can often make your shelves get very cluttered quickly.

Install some mini pull out drawers that can help you store some miscellaneous groceries that are on the smaller side of things.

3. Stackable Wine Rack

Wine racks don’t just belong in the wine cellar! You can use them to help you chill some of your favorite drinks from water to wine in the fridge.

Set up your stackable wine rack in the fridge and slide all your bottles into the holder to make sure that when you open your fridge, nothing comes rolling out and smashes on the floor.

4. Ongoing Grocery Inventory

It can be so difficult to create a shopping list of what you need to buy when you have to think of every single food product in the fridge.

An ongoing grocery inventory kept on the front or side of your fridge can help you tally up exactly what you need and what you already have. Your budget will thank you as well!

5. Magnetic Bottle Holders

If you run the risk of knocking over beer bottles or old style soda bottles, installing some magnetic bottle holders into your fridge is definitely a great idea.

These simple inventions keep your bottle upright to prevent any spilling or rolling of the bottles in your fridge. So simple, yet so helpful.

6. Snack Station

Your little ones sure do love to snack, don’t they? Instead of having to prep something for them every time they are hungry, try this new strategy!

Proportion all your little snacks into small containers and Ziploc bags and store in a basket in the fridge where your kids can access it.

7. Label The Inside

If you have anyone else helping you unload groceries and put them away (hopefully your spouse and/or children!) it can get a little confusing about where everything goes.

Use classy labels to ensure that there is a place for everything in your fridge so you don’t forget about that hummus your child accidentally put in the very back of the fridge behind the milk and orange juice!

8. Bacon Holder

Bacon is a finicky food product to have leftovers of, because, how do you store it?! Have no fear though, we have tracked down an amazing product that will solve all your bacon needs.

Simply pop your extra bacon in this container and store with all your other meat for another breakfast where bacon is simply essential.

It is also perfect for bringing your famous deviled eggs to the next family gathering or potluck party successfully without them falling apart in the car!

10. Plastic Wrap Shelves

Have you ever had a spill in your fridge? It is an absolute disaster to clean up and usually involves unloading the entire fridge for a lengthy cleanup.

Instead, use Press’n Seal wrap to add a layer of protection on each of your shelves. Next time there’s a spill, you won’t have to worry about scrubbing, just start peeling!

11. Storage Bins

Is your family a busy family? Probably! Keeping all your lunch food products in different bins throughout the fridge makes it easy for the kids to pack their own lunch.

You can even add the quantity your little students can have each day. For example, one juice box and one milk carton.

12. Soda Organization

Have you ever opened your fridge and realized that it consists of a multitude of soda cans strewn all over your fridge shelf?

Simply purchasing a simple soda can holder can make your fridge so much more organized while maintaining easy selection and access.
