I have to work really hard to be organized. I was just never one of those girls who were naturally organized. It just doesn’t come naturally to me. Growing up, I never picked up after myself and just piled papers on my desk. I wasn’t a dirty slob but I was a cluttered up slob. It’s a wonder how I ever survived.
Only slightly kidding.
Once I became a mom, I naturally got the motivation to be organized. I didn’t want to raise my kids in chaos. But, it didn’t happen overnight. It slowly took me time to perfect my organizational skills, and trust that I still have a long way to go.
One of the things that bothered me about myself was having an unorganized refrigerator and pantry. Food containers would get shoved to the back all the time. Those forgotten food items would either spoil or I’d end up buying more unnecessarily.
I ended up buying these fridge organizers and it completely changed my life. And no, I am not being dramatic.
I don’t think.
I was initially afraid the bins would make it so I didn’t have as much space, but I think it really gave me more. Almost everything has its place now.
By the way, the egg container is awesome. It holds 14 eggs with the lid but I’ve stacked 34-36 eggs easily with the lid off. You could say I was proud of myself.
The largest bin is for our cheeses, deli meats, and the like. Yogurt goes in one of the skinny containers and juice or other drinks go in the other. The can bin is perfect for your favorite beverage but you could use it for your food or juice boxes as well. You could prepackage snacks and put them in there for easy access for little ones. And the other wide bin is where I keep my larger food packaging like hummus, miso, and greek yogurt.
The ability to pull the bin out to reach items in the back is a thousand times easier than shoving and moving things around.
I’ve seen bin sets at the Container Store for quite a pretty penny, but Amazon has great quality and prices. Plus, with Prime you get free 2-day shipping.
