Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr


*A clean, organised fridge means less time trying to find that vital ingredient, less waste and less chance of contamination.
*Start by taking everything out of your fridge. Throw away expired items.
*Remove all shelves and drawers and wash them in warm soapy water.
*Wipe down the interior surfaces with a damp sponge and clean sticky jars before returning them.
*When you’re putting things back, group them together in a way that makes sense to you.
*Fruit should be stored in its original packaging or plastic bags, in a designated drawer.
*You should never store meat in the same drawer as your fruit and vegetables – wrap it and store on the bottom drawer.
*Don’t overstock, as this will increase wastage and ensure that hidden items go unused.
*Two small shopping trips a week rather than one big one means that you’ll be more efficient and probably save money.
*Check the temperature of your fridge – the ideal is around 5°C.
* keep an open box of baking soda in the door to eliminate unwanted odours.
* keep a notepad attached to your fridge door and write down which items are running low, keeping you prepared for your next trip to the supermarket.
