Your fridge is meant to store food items, it is not a place when you keep your garbage. Ohh, you don’t know what I’m talking? Then, why is there a rotten egg and vegetables inside your fridge? Even that slice of pizza that you ordered last week is still there inside your fridge.
An unorganized fridge not only looks horrible but also stinks equally bad. The only reason your veggies get spoiled is because you don’t know how to store them.
You need to understand that your fridge is not cold storage, where you can put anything you want and it’ll stay fresh forever. You need to learn which is the coldest place inside your fridge and which is warmer, then store the food items accordingly.
It might sound like science, but don’t worry. Here are some good tips and tricks that will help you to organize fridge that will not look clean but also keep your food items fresh for a long time.
1. The top section (below the freezer)
It is the second coldest place inside your fridge, it’s purpose is to store packed items such as pickles and McCain smiles. You can also store some fruits items in it, such as grapes and melons.
2. The middle section
This section of your fridge always has a constant temperature which is ideal for most of your leftover and other food items such as milk, pre-chopped vegetables/fruits, and raw eggs. Just remember to consume them within 3-4 days.
3. The bottom section (For vegetables and fruits)
Your fruits and vegetables require moisture to stay fresh for a long time. Placing fruits and vegetables in this section will offer them plenty of moisture so that they won’t shrivel. Just make sure not to put everything blindly inside your fridge.
This is the warmest part of a fridge. Other than keeping water bottles and juice, you can also keep things like butter, cheese, and seasonings inside this section of your fridge. Place butter at the top, seasonings in the middle and at the bottom you can keep drinks to get chilled.
