Prep your fridge for the holidays

November 15 is National Clean Out Your Fridge Day, 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 day to clean out your fridge. Check your calendar for a day when you have a free hour to focus on the task and follow these six simple steps:

6 steps to an organized refrigerator

  1. Remove everything and toss anything that is out-of-date and/or smelly.

  2. Give the shelves and drawers a good wipe down.

  3. Place tall items in the back of the refrigerator and small items in front for easy visibility.

  4. Place most frequently used items near the front at eye level.

  5. Group similar things together. Dairy on one shelf, fruits in one drawer, cheese in another, condiments in the door etc.

  6. As with any organizing project, maintenance is key. Add a reminder to your calendar now to clean out the refrigerator again in a few months.
