If your not totally nuts about home organization than this probably sounds ridiculous to you.

But you have got to admit there is something ASMR like about beautifully organized spaces even if it’s not your taste or style.

When I see someone who has an organized refrigerator it makes me think they have they’ve got there stuff together’.

I just don’t see myself as being one of those people. Seeing as how I find it hard to get motivated to throw out leftover.

Yeah I totally just admitted that. So go ahead and judge me. Hey it’s an extra dirty dish to clean that I can avoid if I just leave it in the fridge for another day.

So I figured maybe just maybe fridge organization would be worth trying if it reduced our food waste. My only stipulation was that it had to be extremely affordable and require as little of a time commitment as possible.

If it helps keep the fridge clean, it only makes sense to give it a try.

When I started taking inventory of our fridge to begin this organization project, I realized our fridge is never really overflowing with food.

The only benefit to doing this project is that it would give our items a flat resting place instead of our wire shelves.

Word to the wise, if you purchase a lot of pre-made food, produce, snacks, or meal prep organizing your fridge with storage container is necessary.

Once I took inventory of my fridge, I realized we don’t by any of the above. But since I had already done the research, I figured I may as well share with you.

In this post, I will explain why organizing your refrigerator is important, how to organize your fridge, and provide an essential Dollar Tree fridge organization shopping list.

You are probably wondering why you should organize your fridge. If you don’t enjoy spending hours cleaning than organizing your fridge is a great way to save time and energy.

Organizing your fridge is a simple way to cleaning faster and efficient.

If I clean out the fridge once a month, it’s a miracle.

By clean out the fridge I mean actually taking the time to disinfect the inside and outside, wipe down the drawers and shelves, and discard anything that is no longer edible.

Keeping your refrigerator organized will help you to reduce food waste, make it easy to inventory your current stockpile, and give your family easy access to snack, prepared lunch, and produce.

Words of Caution from a Stock piler 

I can’t tell you how many times I have thrown away produce because I didn’t realize it was in the fridge. Not to mention how many expiration dates have come and gone without any notice.

Meal planning has helped reduce our food waste. Along with shopping only for what we need and not stockpiling food for our pantry.

Which I always did in the past. Until I food myself throwing away food because it had gone years past the expiration day.

We also make it a point to try to use all the food in our fridge, freezer, and pantry before grocery shopping again. Monthly grocery shopping and meal planning has made this easy to implement.
