Fixing the Chaos Within…My Refrigerator, That is!

I have been perusing Pinterest lately searching for inspiration to help me organize my refrigerator.  I don’t know about you, but my refrigerator is a mess!  Honestly, it’s probably a bit too small for our family of 6, but it fits into the space allotted for it.  We have a second refrigerator that just isn’t working anymore.  I find it very hard to work with just our one, small refrigerator.  I know…first world problems.  However, it is a real problem for me.  I don’t want to go to the store more than once a week and I’m done with finding forgotten leftovers in the back of the refrigerator.  So here goes nothing!  I decided that I would share my refrigerator adventure with you!  Aren’t you so excited????!!!!???  Ha ha…well I am!  I am ready to get this crazy, unorganized  habitat to unidentified furry objects…wait…what am I talking about?  Oh right, my refrigerator.  There has NEVER been ANY unidentified furry objects in MY refrigerator. So…moving on.  The following are ideas that I found on Pinterest to help me with my quest to get organized.  Next week I will post a picture of my newly organized and beautiful refrigerator.  My plan is to get everything I need from the dollar store.  Spending $50 to $100 on bins and such is definitely not in the budget.  Even if it was…no.  I’d rather spend that on something else!  Like a date night with my hubby!

So without further ado, here is my before picture of my refrigerator.

  1. Refrigerator labels  I had never thought of using labels in my refrigerator until I came across this blog. This particular post gives you free printable labels for your refrigerator, but it also gives you some good visuals of how a well organized fridge might look.  On top of that, her blog is just amazing for organizing and cleaning in general.
  2. Produce storage tips  In this post, Kristin gives great tips for keeping produce fresh and longer lasting.  I have to admit as well, that I LOVE how beautiful her refrigerator organization is!  I love the beautiful produce stored in jars and baskets.  I’m not sure about putting baskets in MY refrigerator, but I definitely want to make more use of all my mason jars!
  3. Refrigerator and Freezer Hacks In this post, the Krazy Coupon Lady give some great ideas for both refrigerator and freezer organization.  I actually saw the idea of using plastic wrap on the refrigerator shelves years ago!  I still haven’t tried it, but I think it’s genius!
  4. Photos of organized refrigerators  This post basically has a slide show of organized refrigerators.  There is no information, just pictures.  But these pics still give some good ideas.  Hey, I will take ALL of the help I can get!
  5. Refrigerator/Freezer Hacks  This post has some great ideas.  A few of which I think I might use.  Especially the freezer ideas.  My freezer needs serious help.  It’s actually really small for us, but I have to make it work!  Using bins/baskets to organize things in my freezer is a genius idea!

Okay, I think I have enough ideas to go on.  I found quite a few Pinterest ideas that looked great, but when I clicked on the pin there was nothing.  No page found or such.  Frustrating!  Anyway, This is the week I am going to organize.  Here are pics of my refrigerator/freezer in its current state.  Honestly, it doesn’t look as bad as it normally does!  But I can’t wait to get it organized and stop wasting food!  Food is too expensive to waste!  Are you with me?  Stay tuned next week for an organized refrigerator that works for a family of 6!
