In most houses, you'll find refrigerators cluttered with things that we barely use or are mostly forgotten. A well maintained and organized refrigerator can help you keep a track of what's in your fridge, what's about to expire and what you need to get rid of. A streamlined fridge can make a lot of difference on those busy days, given the number of times we get back to it - for that morning cup of tea, when making breakfast, lunch or dinner and everything in between.
Professional Organizer and De-cluttering Specialist, Vicky Silverthorn shares a series of practical tips to help you better organize your fridge and cut the clutter.
Keep most frequently used items accessible: Make sure that the items that are most frequently used are stored in the front and the lesser used ones are kept at the back.
Diet wreckers can stay at the back: If you are on a diet plan then keeping your daily dose of fresh veggies, fruits, milk and curd accessible can help. Chocolate and other such diet wreckers can laze around, hiding at the deep end of your fridge.
Ensure proper visibility of items: With such busy lives how could we be expected to remember every single item we own or have bought. The easier the contents of your fridge are to see, the less likely you are to be saddled with out-of-date products.
Adjust it to suit your needs: Your refrigerator is quite flexible with adjustable shelves, it is best that you adjust them to suit what you are storing and ensure that you're not left with any dead space.
Create a kids' zone: Food articles and items for your little ones should be stored at the lowest shelf so that they don't have to struggle to find their favourite foods while you are busy somewhere.
