Easy Tips to Organize Your Refrigerator

With the busy holidays coming up, organization is vital to keeping sane as we finish out the year.  Did you know that November 15th is “National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day”?  If you missed it you can always schedule the time to catch up. Nobody likes to clean out and organize the refrigerator. It’s necessary on a regular basis to avoid sanitation and playing the “find that smell” game.

Here are some tips as you tackle your refrigerator organization project.

  1. Purchase bins to divide your refrigerator into more usable space. For example, a bin for yogurt containers, they can be stacked and will save space. String cheese, snacks, jam, salsa and condiments.
  2. Label, label, label!! If you take the time to label the shelves, bins and drawers you and your family will be able to find what you are looking for much easier. (Not necessary every section, only the ones that make you crazy.)
  3. Sort items “like with like”. – IE. all cheeses together, snacks in one area and beverages on one shelf.
  4. Keep a sharpie in your kitchen to write the date and contents on your frozen bagged items and when you open jars and condiments. This will make it much easier to determine how long something has been open.
  5. Add easy to clean mats on the shelves. Go the extra step and keep your meat in a bowl or tray. If it drips it will be much easier to clean.
  6. If possible don’t store your milk and dairy on the door. Opening and closing the doors will change the temperature.
  7. A good time to empty your refrigerator is right before you go grocery shopping. It will help you meal plan as well. Use what you have to create your menu.

ORGANIZE YOUR CLOSET BY COLOR

Organize by color



You know what color you feel like wearing today and now you can find that shirt quickly and easily by keeping your closet organized by color.  It’s easy!

Start by going through your closet and purging what you don’t wear anymore.  Sort what you are keeping by like items and colors.

Then start hanging your clothes with similar colors together.  You can use any order.  
Some people go so far as to use the order of a Rainbow ……  you know, ROYGBIV or ROY G. BIV (the Acronyms that we learned in art class):  Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo (Purple), Violet (Pink).  Well, the rainbow doesn’t include some of the other colors we all have in our closets like Cream, Brown, Black, Grey, and White, so I’ve added them.  ROYGBIV-CBBGW.

See, it’s easy and pretty.

Who has time to clean?

Cleaning Supplies

Deep cleaning is not something most of us want to do. If you schedule time to do one room at a time starting with dusting the walls (yes even the walls collect dust) to wiping the baseboards you will save time down the road.

Living in a clean home could also help with your health. Eating your greens will work but think about the air quality in your space. It could be as easy as getting your air ducts cleaned, vacuuming and dusting more often. One of my favorite tools is a good’ol Swiffer.

If this isn’t something you are interested in, then hire a professional to take care of it for you. No one said YOU 🙂 have to do it but it does have to get done.

Happy cleaning!
