Don't forget: Your shelves are adjustable! It might seem obvious, but start your fridge organization by adjusting the shelves to your everyday needs. Many times we leave those shelves in one place, but you might be surprised at how much new room you can create by adjusting them.

Take Advantage

Take advantage of awkward spaces like blogger Chelsea from Two Twenty One. She discovered that placing wine bottles in that virtually unusable area under the cheese drawer freed up far more space in her fridge. Check out her other great ideas for organizing your refrigerator.

Corral It

Now that you've taken a closer look at how to make your fridge function better for you, it's time to corral all of those foodstuffs so they don't take up unneccessary space. Try this solution from Melissa at Polished Habitat.

She removed all the foods from her fridge and grouped them. Then she purchased clear containers to hold those groups. This keeps items like cheese and plastic food containers from spreading out. Check out more of her great ideas on reclaiming the space in your fridge, including how to group your groceries.

Don't Forget the Freezer

Introducing clear plastic containers to your freezer, like blogger Thea from Time With Thea did, keeps frozen items from taking up too much space. You can also label each bin to make finding exactly what you need a breeze. Use washi tape and labels to make them cute, too!
