R.I.P. to all the forgotten leftovers that went uneaten.

Buy a set of clear storage containers so no one has the excuse of the yogurt you’re supposed to use up first being hidden behind tons of other stuff. Are we clear? *Crystal*
Consider buying another sturdy egg holder so you can easily stack the container without crushing your eggs and quiche dreams. I heard a rumor you’re making Quiche Lorraine and, just so you know, it’s my fave.
Prevent your LaCroix habit from disrupting your appliance’s newfound order with a can dispenser that’ll be sturdier than just putting the cardboard carton in the fridge.
Or if you’ve had it with cans of seltzer, invest in a SodaStream that comes with a carafe for your seltzer you can store in the fridge in a much smaller footprint. No more trips to the store to lug home heavy cans!
Easily wipe up spills without disrupting everything in your fridge by putting in some cheap shelf liners you can pull out and rinse.
Prevent your crisper drawers from looking like a farmers market graveyard by lining them in produce life extenders that’ll help keep your fruits and veggies fresher for longer.
And keep fresh herbs in tip-top shape with an herb-saving container instead of finding them wilted in a produce bag a month later.
Keep your condiments ready for squirting (seriously, stop pulling a muscle shaking the bottle of mustard to put on your turkey sandwich) with a DIY holder made from a recycled egg carton. Those lil’ sections that once nestled eggs can hold on tight to those lids.
Or opt for a bottle emptying kit if you find all the stuff you’re trying to squeeze every last drop out of is in varying sizes. These handy tops will get tons of use outside the fridge too!
Swap the baking soda and used coffee grounds for an air-purifying bag to make your fridge smell like less of a landfill every time you open it. AND it’ll take up zero shelf space.
If drink pitchers are adding to your storage woes, swap ’em for some squared-off carafes that’ll fit in your fridge door.
Divvy up your bulk buys into normal-size portions — both for storage and meal prep — with a vacuum sealing system to make sure you finally eat all that food from your ambitious Costco haul.
Bring stuff you’d normally shove to the back of the fridge within easy reach by placing bottles of condiments and more on lazy Susans.
And use a wire shelf as a more temporary fix while you’re prepping for a lot of cooking or bought an 18-pack of yogurt at the big-box store but have nowhere to put it. (That’s happened to me several times.)
Also consider a ziplock bag organizer if you tend to store stuff in the handy bags because Tupperware takes up too much space. (It’ll also work in the freezer for all your slow cooker dump dinners!)
Learn what shouldn’t be chilled so you won’t have to sacrifice precious space to the not-so-cool items.
And stash the stuff that shouldn’t be in the fridge nearby with this slim, slide-out caddy that’s skinny but tall enough to place in the weird little space between your fridge and kitchen cabinets. We all have at least one thing in the fridge that, tbh, doesn’t belong there.
Or stack bev bottles (beer, soda, champagne, etc.,) easily on a simple rubber mat to prevent a wet disaster.
And keep opened bottles from making a boozy mess with this leak-proof wine-saver that’ll set firmly on a shelf.
Give everything a name (and the date that it goes bad) with a label maker that feels very ~official~. Um, this is also good for roommates or family members who buy their own groceries. Paws off my hummus!
Preserve cut produce with a silicone food hugger to take up far less room (and create less waste) to store those goodies in the fridge. Avocados are expensive! This’ll help your tasty investment reach its full potential.
Encourage using up all the food you already have in your fridge with this magnetic dry-erase menu planner that’ll stick to the front of a fridge door.
