Maximize every inch – Avoid round containers, instead use square or rectangular stacking containers for leftovers to maximize space.
Take Care - Extend the life of asparagus, green onions and herbs. Wash, dry and place them in an container with some water. Cover them loosely with a plastic bag and store in the fridge door changing the water every 2-3 days or when it is cloudy.
Extend Edibles - Look for longest expiry date and buy smaller quantities when you shop. Set fruit crisper to low humidity and vegetable crisper to high humidity.
Forever Fresh - Stick an ARM & HAMMER™ Fridge Fresh™ Refrigerator Air Filter to the inside of the fridge wall to save space and keep foods fresh.
Use Labels - label fridge sections to encourage the household to keep the fridge organized. Date left overs with Jokari Erasable Food Labels. Keep the marker, eraser and labels nearby.
Prolong your Produce – Save money by using a Blueapple® to keep fruits and veggies lasting longer and tasting great. It absorbs the gases that spoil food in your crisper.
Systemize Packaging - Set up a station with a variety of square containers, Ziplocs and a marker with labels to date leftovers.
Made for Fridges – Although a little pricey, the Interdesign Fridge Binz are a fantastic customizable storage solution for your fridge. They keep foods easily accessible.
- Clearly Contained - Use clear stackable containers and lids so you can quickly see leftovers.
Safe Storage - Use glass containers for storing microwavable leftovers and plastic for foods you don’t reheat.
Good Lighting – This might seem obvious but fridge light bulbs do burn out, so be sure to check and replace them.
