10 LIFE CHANGING FREEZER HACKS ANYONE WITH A KITCHEN NEEDS

Are your refrigerator and freezer organized?

Do you want them to be organized? 

Refrigerator/freezer organization is something our house struggles with every.single.day.  If it isn’t bad enough, that no two bottles can be the same size, they have to be varying shapes too.  Factor in various leftovers, fruit and veggies, food intolerances and allergies and your refrigerator/freezer can begin to look like a war zone.

Hopefully, some of these refrigerator freezer organization tools, tips and hacks will help you do just that.

1. Reduce waste by putting expiring food in an “Eat Me First” box.

3. Cover your refrigerator shelves with plastic wrap for easy spill cleanup.

Use shelf liners to keep your stored items & shelves clean and protected. You will never have to wipe your protected surfaces again – simply throw your liners in the wash and reuse them. The cut to fit line pattern makes it easy to cut even pieces that will fit in any size drawer or shelf.
