I headed to Amazon to find products to help us declutter our refrigerator and freezer. And I found some great items that I will be reviewing later this week. I wanted to share my findings with you first. Now, first off, it's not cheap. I paid $100 for 6 large bins. But, the results were OUTSTANDING. In my opinion, it was well worth the investment. These bins by InterDesign fit my fridge and freezer perfectly and when I pulled everything out I found stuff that totally annoyed me. Not with the product, but what I found in my freezer.
In my freezer, we stock up on frozen veggies. I found FOUR open bags of corn! FOUR! What does that tell me? Rather than LOOK for an open bag of corn in the mess we call a freezer, its easier to just rip open a new bag. RRRRR!! OK. Not only did this task allow me to organize, it allowed me to PURGE!! When was the last time you purged your fridge and freezer? The stuff you find buried in there can make you scratch your head.
I didn't take a before picture because I was in the zone and didn't realize to blog about this until now. But if you can imagine all those products (and then some) just shoved in there with no rhyme or reason, that's what it looked like. The veggie bins at the bottom was full of the fruit along with some starting to turn. That's why its all empty. We got rid of a lot of it. I may do large grocery shopping trips for boxed goods. For produce and fresh food, I shop every 1-2 weeks depending on usage.
So, $100 later, and my fridge and freezer space now looks wonderful. What I love the most about these bins are the puka handles. It makes it easy to pull forward and tilt to see what's inside. In case something spills, all you have to worry about is washing the bins, not worrying how far it dripped and spilled down your fridge forming a pool at the bottom. Don't you just hate that?
As you can see in the pics, there's about 5" of space to the sides of the bins that I will be filling with 4" wide bins on amazon to hold cans and other odds and ends. Are you ready to declutter your fridge/freezer?
I've done the work for you. You can find these on Amazon below. You're welcome!
