Welcome to day #10 of the 30-day organization challenge AND the LAST day on the kitchen (for now)! It’s so exciting! I also love this task, even when I don’t get the rest of the kitchen organized as it makes a big difference in any kitchen.
Day #10 Challenge – Organize and Clean-Out the Refrigerator
This is such a budget saving, health saving, money saving, beneficial task.
We encourage you to get your fridge cleaned out and organized today. It doesn’t seem like our before and after pictures are really that different, but to me, when I go to use my fridge and kitchen now, things are more easily found and not forgotten and in a logical place again. When you are making food, this little bit of organization can really make the task more difficult or easier. Well, we hope after organizing it is easier for you!
As you are doing this task, I HIGHLY recommend that you use the No-Food Waste Menu Planner (HERE) because it will help you to plan out your meals with the foods you have on hand. It is FABULOUS and has saved us hundreds of dollars by not wasting food (or it going bad before you realize you needed to use it).
So after you grab that, check out our before and after and my organization inside my fridge.

Close-up of top, we have produce in the whole bottom shelf (salads mostly). Then the other dairy and misc.
Then the produce drawers and the deli drawers
During this clean-out/organize process, I also washed out the shelves/drawers with warm, soapy water and planned my No Food Waste Menu around the soon to expire foods. It feels so good to have this done and have this part of our lives clean and organized.
