10 Best Tips and Hacks to Organise your Fridge

When was the last time you did a thorough clean of your fridge? We know how daunting it can be to remove everything and reorganise. It’s important to do it once every three months to make sure everything is fresh and safe for consumption. We’re here to help with this step-by-step guide on how you can keep your fridge in tip-top shape.1. Remove All Content from FridgeTake out every single thing in your fridge in portion (to prevent the bulk of food from turning bad in the open air). Store frozen food in a cooler box while you’re cleaning to keep them cool. Once done, wipe any dirt or stains, especially in the crevices of your fridge. Clean with disinfecting wipes, instead of just using a regular cloth. If needed, remove shelf compartments and rinse them with hot water to completely remove stubborn stains.Shop fresh groceries and delivered them right to your doorstep with FairPrice Online, Foodsterr and Amazin’ Graze.2. Organise with ContainersInstead of placing your groceries all over the fridge in small plastic bags, segregate them by different types of food in transparent containers. You can even have a container that says “Eat Me First”, for food that is about to expire. This way, you’ll reduce food wastage and ultimately, spend lesser money on grocery shopping. It’s a win-win situation for all, right?Compartmentalise your fridge with environmentally-friendly containers from Shopee or ezbuy.3. Label Your ContainersNext, if you have a habit of leaving (good) food forgotten in the fridge, label them. It’s for you to know exactly when you bought or cooked it and when the expiry date is.
