Tidy Tips for a Packed Holiday Fridge
Holiday calories don’t count, right? That may be true but where do you store all these yummy calories? Fridge and freezer space is sparse during the holiday season. Between baked goods, fun beverages, and pre bought ingredients to dodge the grocery store madness, space gets pretty tight. However, there is good news in sight because there is nothing that Tidy Spaces does better than… finding tidy spaces! You no longer have to worry about a food-slide every time you open the fridge door.
Fitting all your tupperware containers in the fridge can feel like a devious puzzle. Taking things out just to put them back in a different position is frustrating. It doesn’t need to be this way though! There are so many great stackable containers out there that can make things so much more efficient. Having a container set that takes advantage of your limited space will make your fridge or freezer feel so much more roomy. We know that during the holidays there is a tendency for making meals in advance and finding yourself with leftovers, so give the gift of tidiness to yourself this holiday and purchase some affordable yet efficient storage for your goodies.
Labeling is as essential as a carrot nose for your snowman. By simply giving a name to what belongs in each area of your fridge, things can stay tidy for longer. This idea is perfect for when you are hosting guests or have little ones who keep looking for their favorite treats. Drawer labeling can also help those chaotic moments where you’re being the multitasker that you are. You won’t even have to think twice about where to place something!
Freezing until Later
The holiday season is a time that should be spent relaxing with loved ones, so we totally understand if you grocery shop and cook in advance. By preparing things before the day of, you get to spend more time doing things with the people that matter. The only problem with this is finding freezer space and remembering what you froze. Stackable containers work great for the freezer along with the fridge to save space. Finish off your freezing process with a label. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, a simple piece of tape and sharpie will do! Depending on what you’re freezing, plastic freezer bags labeled with a marker are great too. On the label, write what the item is, along with the date you are freezing it to make for easy use later on.
Tidy Spaces Pro Tips
Sometimes it’s the little tips that go a long way.
- If you live in a cold climate, take advantage of that! Store your cans of soda, seltzers, water bottles, etc. in the garage. This will maximize your fridge and freezer space and still provide cold beverages.
- Don’t be afraid to do some fridge and freezer remodeling! Sometimes we get so stuck in our ways that we forget that change is good. Move the shelves in your fridge and freezer to best fit your needs.
- Organize strategically! Place less used items in the back of the fridge to avoid digging around for your every-day items.
