The Most Ingenious Ways to Organize Your Refrigerator


Here are some of the most ingenious storage solutions you should steal for an organized refrigerator.

After lugging heavy bags of groceries through the door, the last thing anyone feels like doing is sorting them by type or expiration date. The more common strategy is stuffing everything into the little refrigerator space available and hoping your fridge doesn’t burst.

Trust us ― giving everything in your fridge a proper place will save you lots of time and money in the long run. Here are a few ways to help you whip your fridge into shape.

2. And all those bottles of beer!

First launched on Kickstarter, BottleLoft is another brilliant product that hangs things and frees up limited shelf space.
