Top tips to organize your refrigerator effectively

Published Date:

When it comes to refrigerators or any other shelf, we love to organize it only when we were kids but as an adult, organizing a refrigerator is something that we never really care about. While a fully-stocked and colour-coordinated refrigerator might give you the immense pleasure of richness but over-stocking your refrigerator with many items can be equally frustrating. Here are some easy tips to organize your refrigerator in just no time:

1. Clean and discard 

The first step towards organizing your refrigerator is to clean it from top to bottom, separate what you need and what can be discarded. This will give you plenty of space in the refrigerator to put fresh, new and clean items in an organized manner. While you are doing this clean, keep perishable items in cooler areas.

2. Label Everything 

This is one of the most tried and tested tools for many people and trust us it works wonder if you do it right! Whether you are keeping leftovers in the refrigerator, putting freshly chopped veggies or fruits in a zipper-bag or storing breastmilk for your little kid, ensure that you write the name, time and date of the item you are keeping. This will help you in keeping a track of which food item needs to be eaten on priority, which one needs to be discarded, and which item you need to buy on your next grocery shopping.

3. Separate fruits and veggies 

Experts suggest that ethylene producing fruits such as apples, bananas, mangoes, apricots and passion fruits should be kept away from other food items. The reason behind this segregation is that these fruits will catalyze decomposition of other veggies in the refrigerator. However, to ripen a hard rock avocado, you can keep it with ethylene producing fruits such as bananas. Ensure that you keep every veggie and fruits in zip bags for extended freshness and shelf life.

4. Group Like items together

This might seem like a tip that almost everybody knows about but they seldom follow. Well, to keep every food item fresh and edible, you need to ensure that you have stored like-itmes together. Instead of just randomly tossing your foods in the refrigerator, sit back and take a look at all the food items that make a perfect pair and go together. The rule of thumb is to focus on your eating habits and see the food pairings that you reach for more often. Next time when you open your refrigerator in the middle of night, you will not be worried about spilling things.

5. Do not store onion, potatoes and garlic in fridge 

Although this should have been an unsaid rule by now, people often store potatoes, onions and garlic in the refrigerator. Remember that these food items have more shelf life and they can be easily kept in a cool, dark and dry place. On the other hand,keeping them in the refrigerator will cause sprouting and ripening of these food items.
