Get your Kitchen Organized for the Holidays

November 18, 2013 | Christine Hradek


I am positive that one of the reasons for food waste is crowded, unorganized refrigerators. Just purchased food, as well as leftovers, get lost behind and under other items and spoil before they get used. Crowded, messy refrigerators can be discouraging and make us want to throw in the dish towel and head for the first drive-thru we can find.

We are just starting into the holiday season when you will likely need extra space in your refrigerator to thaw that turkey, make salads for the potluck, cool beverages, etc.  I guarantee that you will save money by spending 1-2 hours cleaning your refrigerator out.

Watch this 3 minute video How to organize your Fridge video or get the handout How to Organize Your Refrigerator.pdf .  Both provide simple, straightforward steps to make the job go fast and easy.
