Keeping my refrigerator organized is not always on the top of my priority list. Usually, the only priority I put on my refrigerator to-do list is making sure it has a few essentials to get me through the week’s breakfast and lunch necessities. To be quite honest, I’m not even to the point of stocking that bad boy with a full week’s of dinner grub, just getting the breakfast/lunch combo down has been challenging enough. Sad story right?
Well…I have recently committed myself to organizing the refrigerator in hopes that organizing will lead to stocking those shelves, which will e.v.e.n.t.u.a.l.l.y, maaaybbeeeee lead to consistently cooking. First breakfast, then lunch, and then maybe, even possibly… dinner.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. Today’s first step: organizing the refrigerator.
Enter this fabulous package of fridge coasters. Just like the name implies, these coasters are placed on your refrigerator’s shelves to keep them clean from spills, crumbs, fingerprints or whatever else sneaks in there. Plus, they add some fashion to those otherwise plain, boring shelves.
I’ll stop blabbing about these treasures, but I won’t stop the organizing just yet. Confession: Don’t be too impressed. I figured if I kept organizing, I wouldn’t have to start cooking.
Next step: labeling produce and leftovers to ensure freshness. All you need is washi tape ($.99 @ JoAnn Fabrics on sale) and a Sharpie marker.
Take your fresh produce, wash, drain, cover, and label!
The washi tape is temporary, so you can slap it on any Tupperware and write the date when you bought/washed/cooked your dish. This way you’ll make sure everything you’re eating is fresh.
When you’re done with the Tupperware, you can easily peel off the washi tape and throw it away! Done & done.
