Keeping your refrigerator organized not only makes it easier to find what you’re looking for, but it can also create more space and keep things from going to waste. There is nothing more frustrating to me than having to throw away expired food that has been forgotten about because it was hidden in the back.
Whether you have a large family, roommates, or even live alone, there are a few ideas and cool fridge hacks in here that you probably haven’t thought of!

1.”Eat Me First” Bin
Even with the best of intentions, I always end up throwing out spoiled or expired food that was buried in the back of the refrigerator. It drives me INSANE!! A lot of times I look at the dates on the yogurts to see which one I should eat first, but this doesn’t mean the entire family will do the same. Take this tip from Ms. Simplicity and create an “Eat Me First” bin to prevent future waste.
2. Lazy Susan in the fridge? Yes!
For all of those containers and jars that get lost in the back of the fridge, consider using a small lazy susan or two for easy access to all of your condiments and such. A stackable lazy susan is even better for tall shelves to help use up all of that empty air space. I have two of them in my refrigerator! I’m not really sure how I survived without them before.
3. Upside Down Squeeze Bottles
Store your squeeze bottles upside down in an egg carton to not only make them squeeze with ease, but to also keep them from sliding around and falling over in the refrigerator door. Check out more details here.
