Do you need a map to find the foods inside of your refrigerator? Don’t feel bad. Most of us don’t have a real organization system when it comes to stocking the fridge, we just stuff our food wherever it will fit. But, there is a better way.

Follow these five tips for a neater, more organized refrigerator.

  1. Maximize vertical space. Use stackable storage containers to help you maximize the vertical space in your refrigerator. You should also invest in a hard plastic egg container which allows you to stack items on top of your otherwise fragile eggs.

  1. Keep leftovers front and center. It happens to the best of us – sometimes our leftover food, no matter how delicious it is, vanishes into the depths of our refrigerator and doesn’t resurface for months. Prevent wasted food by keeping your leftovers at the front and center of your most eye-level shelf.

  1. Take advantage of adjustable shelves. Most refrigerators come with adjustable shelves and drawers which allow you to rearrange them based on your storage needs. Most families buy the same products in the same packaging every week, so taking the time to rearrange your shelves now can save you time in the future.

  1. Have a plan. Did you know where you keep your food can impact how long it stays fresh? Keep your milk and raw meats on the bottom shelf, and save space on the door for items resistant to spoiling; such as bottled water, salad dressing, and various condiments.

  1. Clean your refrigerator once per month. Keeping a clean refrigerator is an ongoing process, not a one-time effort. Clean your refrigerator every month by emptying it, throwing out all expired food, wiping it down, and restocking.
