So you don't need a ton of money to get your home organized. You really just need to come up with the best systems for your family - at least that is what I am learning. I did purchase a few storage bins for the fridge - but they all came from the dollar store...even the food storage containers.
Ok, let me share some of the details - to start everything off I did a thorough cleaning out of the fridge and cleaning of the fridge. I unfortunately don't have a real before. I kind of started on a whim when I got frustrated with the mess. But I did get a post clean out photo - this is usually how the fridge is. A random assortment and no real place for anything.
I then grouped everything in different sections and determined which items I wanted in storage bins and which items would go inside the fridge drawers. I ended up with a storage bin for spreads, snacks, cooking supplies and fruit. My drawers consist of deli, veggies and then baking supplies. Plus I have clear food storage containers for more of what I call snacking fruits and veggies - that way I can easily know what we have on hand.
Oh, and I used my little label maker plus washi tape to add a little fun.
I am loving it so far. Its been two weeks since we did this and everything looks just as organized. The storage bins really help give things a place and also really helps me know when things are low and need replacing. This is like life changing for me - to open the fridge and know exactly what we have and need.
So just for fun I thought I would add some pretty and fun organization elements that I would love to add to our new organized fridge. All of these items are really affordable too.
1. This glass creamer carton is so cute to me - it would be fun to store creamer in right? You can find it at Carol Wright Gifts and for $5.99!
2. I love ceramic egg crates, this one is by West Elm for $9.00
3. I'm thinking of using a tray in our fridge for our fresh meats - how could I say no to this tray, its the same exact pattern as our fabric ottoman. The tray is also from Target for $9.99.
4. These berry baskets from World Market are so adorable. Strawberry season is so close and these are perfect for storing your freshly picked berries. A 3 pack will run you $14.97.
Moral of the story today... The most dreaded spot in your house can become one the cutest and most organized. It just takes a little time and determination to get it right.
Thanks so much for joining me today! Tomorrow I'm sharing some more patio progress. Have a great day!
