20 Simple Fridge Organization Ideas & Cleaning Hacks

by Simplify

With items constantly moving in and out on a daily basis, one of the hardest places to organize in your home is the refrigerator. So, lifestyle expert, Lisa Burningham, is showing others how to organize their fridge with her top fridge organization ideas.

The first thing she recommends is to start by taking absolutely everything out. Doing so will allow you to see which items you’re currently storing in there; plus, it’s a great opportunity to clean it while it’s empty.

Wondering how to clean a fridge in a short amount of time? Lisa says to simply scrub it down with a bowl of soapy water and a washcloth or sponge.

If you find any stuck-on food or stubborn stains, make a paste of baking soda and vinegar, spread it over the area, then wipe it away in 5 to 10 minutes. And Magic Eraser can help you remove any scuff marks.

Then, you can deodorize the entire fridge—eliminating all those yucky smells—by placing an open container of either baking soda or regular oats inside.

Fridge organization ideas

Now that it’s nice and clean, it’s time to put Lisa’s fridge organization tips to the test. She says the best way to organize your fridge is to purchase some inexpensive clear organization products like an egg container, a water filter, and kitchen drawer organizers for items like cheese, butter, and canned drinks.

Lisa also recommends storing condiments in a clear turntable or plastic bin. Plus, she says that stackable shelves can be placed inside vegetable and fruit drawers to keep delicate produce from getting smashed. She even uses plastic bins in the freezer to keep items together.

    I have used a rubbermaid turn table in the 'fridge for decades. It is where all the condiments are kept. They don't get stuck in the back.. also have two double ones, in with the canned goods, in the higher shelves, easy access....
