Your fridge is the heart of your kitchen. It's used every single day, and it's the place you store your food. If it's disorganized, chances are your whole kitchen will be too—not to mention that it'll be harder to find what you need when you're cooking. That's why today I'm going to share the top 10 tips for keeping a well-organized fridge:
One of the best ways to keep your fridge organized is to clean it out at least once a month or even better once a week. This will ensure that you're not storing expired food or leftovers that have been sitting around for too long.
Remove all old food from your refrigerator and freezer as soon as possible, as well as any items that aren't in date anymore or have been opened for more than 2 days.
Plan meals based on what you have on hand in the house at any given time, so that when you go grocery shopping, there won't be anything extra lying around taking up space!
TCL's inverter refrigerators come with Total No Frost technology, which removes the necessity for manual defrosting. Additionally, the tempered glass shelves on every level make cleaning effortless!
Once you've got your fridge cleaned out, the next step is to make sure that it stays that way. This is where some simple habits can help keep things running smoothly.
For example, if you know exactly where every item in your fridge is at all times and how much of each item there should be (and whether or not it needs replenishing), then it's easy to notice when something goes missing or has been eaten past its expiration date.
If you're the type who leaves things in the fridge until they go bad and then throws them away, then this may be a little more difficult. Another thing to keep in mind is that not everything needs to stay in your fridge all the time. For example, some foods can be left out on your counter for a few hours without spoiling or going bad if you plan to cook them for your next meal.
The next step to organizing your fridge is to buy some clear bins and other organization products. While you're at it, why not make a list of everything that needs to be stored in the refrigerator and then make sure each container has its own designated spot?
Here are some ideas for what you can store in clear bins:
Produce (like bananas or tomatoes)
Dairy products (like cheese blocks)
When you remove packaging from food items, it's important to label them. That way you can easily tell what is in each bin and when it needs to be used. You can use a marker or even sticker labels if you want something more permanent.
Keeping fruits and vegetables organized is a great way to make sure they don't go bad before you can use them. For example, keep fruits that spoil quickly (like berries) separate from those that don't (like apples). You can also separate them by color, ripeness, or size if you want to make sure everything stays fresh longer!
Fruits should ideally be kept in a bowl or basket on your countertop so they're easy for everyone in the family to reach.
Vegetables should stay in plastic bags inside the crisper drawer of your fridge; this will help keep them fresher longer since it provides more protection from light and moisture than just storing them out on open shelving would do.
The TCL refrigerator models P545TM and P605TM feature a Humidity Slider Crisper, offering two adjustable humidity drawers for a total of four customizable humidity storage combinations. Effortlessly slide the lever to achieve the desired humidity level, ensuring your food stays fresh. This feature allows you to tailor the humidity settings for optimal preservation of fruits and vegetables alike.
One of the biggest challenges of organizing your fridge is finding a place for all of the different items. If you have a lot of food and beverages, this can be especially difficult. To help with this issue, try to store similar items together so there are fewer searches and doors opened when looking for something specific.
For example, if you have several types of condiments that go well with different meals (like ketchup or mustard), put them all in one area so you don't have to open multiple doors every time you need some sauce or dressing on your burger.
You can easily store large bottled drinks, gallon-sized milk, or other beverages on the door shelves of TCL refrigerators, featuring Bottle Space. This convenient design not only provides easy access but also saves valuable storage space.
Baskets and bins are a great way to organize items that are similar in size, shape, or color. You can use baskets for fruits and vegetables, as well as other food items such as pasta and rice. Bins are ideal for storing things like cereals, snacks, and canned goods because they're more spacious than baskets--and they won't spill out onto the floor if you accidentally knock them over!
They give you extra room in your fridge so it doesn't feel cluttered when everything has its own home within reachable distance from where you open the door every day!
Eggs, milk, and cheese should be kept in the back of the fridge. With TCL's inverter refrigerator, there's no need to worry about food getting frozen inside the fridge.
Water, juice, and other beverages should go to indoor compartments where they're easy to reach.
Keep fruits and vegetables on top shelves so they don't get squished by heavier items below them.
If you've got too many items in your fridge and don't know what to do with them, try this: Put the things you use less often in the door. The door is usually reserved for condiments and other items that come in smaller packages. This will help reduce clutter and make it easier to find things when you need them. It also makes it easier for everyone else who lives in your house to see what's on hand.
While it may be tempting to wash and cut all vegetables and meat before storage, it's preferable to preserve meat whole until you're ready to cook it because cutting it speeds up spoiling. Produce should also be washed just before eating or cooking since extra humidity might hasten to ripen.
Organize your refrigerator to make it simple to keep food like snacks organized and accessible for children and to help plan your meals for the week. Better food tracking will enable you to plan your shopping more effectively and reduce food wastage.
