This has been talked about WAY too long…I am finally getting around to writing this post & sharing the sizing deets on all things fridge organization. Last year I did a full post talking about how I organize and what I all use (the post can be read HERE) I share a ton of my tips & tricks in the post.
One thing I didn’t really get into was exact sizing though – so I wanted to do a follow up post and share exact sizing ect. Organization is one of those things that just makes me HAPPY :). Not too many things make me more excited that opening up drawers, pantry doors, linen closets and fridge’s to find the contents all docked away in their own place & well organized 🙂
When I wrote the original post we still lived in our home and I was using my way old school sub zero-narrow as heck fridge, so organization was KEY to space. Fast forward to now, we are living in a rental with a new, but still not great fridge. It does seem to have a bit more space than my last fridge though :). I took all of my bins here to the apt and made them work in this fridge. I didn’t buy new-I just made what I had work. For the most part they are all universal in regards to length so the length isn’t so much as important. The width is where I got out the tape measure and make sure I got bins that would work. I tried to stay consistent with the “style” of bins for each shelf. You might notice for each shelf its the same style for the most part (or atleast in that style family). This helped to keeps things consistent, flow well, and most importantly-FIT.
Let’s dive in:
Top Shelf: This is the shelf I like to keep clear for left over containers, kettles that I want to store in the fridge, large spinach containers ect. I like clean line organization, but sometimes you just need an open space for the random things :). I did add the egg cartons-they are great for putting in washed fresh fruits so it can be easily grabbed for snacks throughout the day 🙂
Second shelf: I did four of these style bins. Two of this size (narrow deep), & two of this size (wide deep). The first ones are great for yogurts, drinks, ect. The wider ones, I like to use for fruits and veggies that are still in containers. I find that it helps me to be able to see everything I have which leads to less waste.
Bottom Shelf: This style bin is my favorite. They are light and easy to slide in and out. The larges ones (Linus large), fit bags of oranges, lemons & limes perfectly. I also use them to store avocados, kiwis ect. Larger fruit. Bonus the lesson and limes look pretty in the bins :). The smaller ones (Linus rectangle), I like to use for peppers, tomatoes ect. These also work really great for drinks, smoothie bottles, ect. Depending on the bottle size I flip back and forth between these and the ones from the shelf above. This shelf is also where I store my eggs-I prefer these oner the paper cartons because I just feel like it adds a cleaner look. These are the egg cartons that I use.
