Part 1 of 3: How to Organize Your Fridge | Best Practices and Tips

Welcome to the first part of our three-part series on how to organize your fridge! As an eco-friendly kitchen brand, Two Pillars is dedicated to not only providing you with high-quality, sustainable kitchen products but also helping you make the most of them.

A well-organized fridge not only looks nice but can also help keep your food fresh for longer, reduce waste, and save you money. Here are some best practices and tips to help you get started:

  1. Start with a clean slate. Before you begin organizing your fridge, take everything out and give it a good cleaning with an all-purpose cleaner and a Swedish Dishcloth. This is also a great time to check expiration dates and get rid of any expired or moldy food.
  2. Use containers to group like items together. Using containers like ZipBag® or reusable plastic containers can help you keep your fridge organized by grouping like items together. This can also help prevent cross-contamination and make it easier to find what you're looking for.
  3. Label everything. Labeling containers can help you easily identify what's inside and when it was prepared or purchased. You can use a UniLid® with food tracking to make this even easier.
  4. Store items at the correct temperature. Make sure your fridge is set to the correct temperature and store items in the correct areas. For example, dairy products and meats should be stored on the lower shelves where it's colder, and fruits and vegetables should be stored in the crisper drawer.
  5. Use a Duo Cover® to keep your food fresh. If you have leftovers or pre-prepared meals, use a Duo Cover® to keep them fresh and prevent them from drying out.

By following these best practices and tips, you can keep your fridge organized and your food fresh for longer. Plus, you'll be reducing waste and saving money in the long run. Stay tuned for the next part of our series where we'll be discussing long-lasting options and storage suggestions!
