November is National Clean Out Your Fridge Month, and an excellent time to take a good look at what has gotten lost in the back of the refrigerator – and make room for the holiday dishes, treats, and leftovers that will need some space in a few short weeks.
You won't need an entire month to clean out your fridge. Pick a day on the calendar when you have a free hour and follow these simple steps:
6 steps to an organized refrigerator
Start by pulling everything out and tossing anything that is out-of-date and/or smelly.
Give the shelves and drawers a good wipe down.
Place tall items in the back of the refrigerator and small items in front for easy visibility.
Place most frequently used items near the front at eye level.
Group similar things together. Dairy on one shelf, fruits in one drawer, cheese in another, condiments in the door etc.
Each time you take out the trash do a quick check of the refrigerator and toss old leftovers or expired items.
