Top refrigerator storage ideas
To organize refrigerator contents is a headache, at least for me. You start out with good intentions, clearing out all the rotting veggies, and leftover foods, scrubbing and wiping everything – leaving it sparkling clean.
Three days later, the clutter starts accumulating. The cycle to declutter the refrigerator starts again.
Getting your hands on some top refrigerator storage ideas may be just what you need to keep it neat and tidy.
Clutter accumulates because there is no storage and organization system for the fridge.
If you are fortunate, your refrigerator only comes with two drawers, one for the vegetables, and another for fruits.
I buy way more vegetables than what these accommodate. This forces me to place veggies on the refrigerator shelves.

Organize refrigerator shelves
ONEONEY 2PCS Kitchen Pantry, Refrigerator, Freezer Storage Container Box with LidI find it challenging to organize refrigerator shelves. I always start with good intentions, with each shelf designated to particular foods and condiments.
These tend to be mixed up eventually – yogurts on the same shelf as onions, (you get the picture).
One of the top refrigerator storage ideas that I recommend is making use of container boxes.
They instantly create drawers for your fridge and go a long way in keeping your fridge contents organized.
I love how this one (see right) has handles that make it easy to pull and push, without dropping things. I’d go a step further and label them so that everybody in the house can keep the system going.

With everything tucked so neatly in the fridge – thorough cleaning of the fridge itself need not be too frequent.

The best refrigerator food storage containers are also perfect for establishing a fridge organization system. My advice is to label them so that they do not get mixed up. They can easily get disorganized.
Rubbermaid is a trusted brand, especially for plastic food storage containers. They are durable and safe (BPA free). The 3-pack Silivo food containers are also good. The removable drain plate that comes with them prevents the contents from soaking in water.
Food storage containers are some of the top refrigerator storage ideas because of their multi-use feature. They can be used outside of the fridge for things like packing lunch.
Organize refrigerator door (interior)
AnGeer Fridge Organizer Door Hanging Storage Mesh Bag With Double Pockets, Color RandomDon’t you get frustrated when you have opened a packet of sauce, and not know how to store the left-over sauce?
I think these hanging mesh bags are a brilliant idea. The material used for the hooks is strong enough to hang well, with no risk of anything falling and spilling.
Each mesh bag is has into two pockets, making it easy to use one bag to store different items. This definately makes it easy to organize the refrigerator door.
One family uses these bags to store their pre-boiled eggs. In my house, these tend to disappear, and when we find them somewhere in the fridge – it is never clear whether it’s raw or boiled eggs. These are proving to be great then for people who like to pre-plan, hence I included them as one of the top refrigerator storage ideas.

For many of us, the fridge offers magnetic storage for memos, reminders, and anything else that you can post on the door. I found some interesting magnetic refrigerator storage ideas that one could have never guessed.
My fridge gets pasted with papers for my kids’ activities. It would be much neater if I use the magnetic memo pocket, which occupies only one spot on the fridge door. The memo pocket comes with both the writing pad and the pencil. It goes a long way contributing to a less cluttered refrigerator. Although it is not for the fridge interior, it makes sense to include it in the top refrigerator storage ideas.
