There’s nothing like a perfectly organized fridge to really tie your kitchen together. But finding the time and the patience to organize your fridge can be tricky. With these hacks as inspiration, you can turn your fridge into a masterpiece that’s both aesthetically pleasing and maximizes your efficiency in the kitchen. Here are 5 tips from TikTok that’ll motivate you to achieve the fridge of your dreams.
Be strategic about storing certain foods
A good first step to organize your fridge is making sure your groceries are in the right sections. Chef Elan Laloum (@vivelechef) shared his tips and tricks when it comes to food placement. For example, the door is the warmest part of the fridge, so you shouldn’t keep milk there. He also suggests keeping meat on the lowest shelf, and storing greens and fruits separately. The more you know!
Use drawer space for convenient snacking
TikTok user @mama_bear_186 uses containers and drawers to create an easy grab-and-go snacking experience. She uses containers to give popular items their own, easy-to-find space. She even gives loose berries and grapes individual drawers, so there’s nothing standing in the way of a healthy snack.
An organized snack drawer is key for parents

Labels can make a huge difference

Labels can help you sustain your new setup.
