Rachel Ray’s Top 5 Tips for Organizing your Refrigerator

Refrigerators can get messy — and fast!

Not to mention that most of us are probably under utilizing the space we have.

TIP NO. 1: Use Bins to Organize Your Pull-Out Freezer Drawer

For starters, use one bin for frozen veggies, another for frozen meals — and so on — and file them side by side.

This way, nothing gets buried and you know exactly what you’re working with at all times!

TIP NO. 2: Label The Inside of the Fridge Itself with an Erasable Pen

Tired of keeping track of which leftovers made it into the fridge and when?

Yup, you can write on the refrigerator itself! Just test whichever erasable pen you choose before going wild.

How have we never thought of that?!

TIP NO. 3: Adhere Heavy-Duty Magnets to the Top of Fridge

You can literally hang cans, salad dressings or baby food from the top of your fridge. What a nifty use of space!

You HAVE to watch the video above to see this tip in action.

TIP NO. 4: Use Clip-On Drawers on Your Shelves

Maximize all the vertical space in your fridge by purchasing clip-on drawers that you can attach to the existing shelves. Fill them with small items — like butter, small cheeses or kids snacks!

TIP NO. 5: Use an Egg Carton To Organize Your Condiments

Get the most out of your condiment bottles (A.K.A. store them upside down!) without making a mess in your fridge by simply removing the lid from an empty egg carton and placing it right in the door of your fridge.

In an instant, you’ll have perfect little slots to store all of your bottles with their lids down — minus the annoyance of everything falling over every time you open the fridge door!

Plus, if anything leaks, the egg carton bubbles will contain the mess and you can easily swap in a new one without having a huge sticky mess to clean up.
