1.Buy a set of clear storage containers so no one has the excuse of the yogurt you're supposed to use up first being hidden behind tons of other stuff. Are we clear? *Crystal*
2.Consider buying another sturdy egg holder so you can easily stack the container without crushing your eggs and frittata dreams. (BTW, frittatas are easy ways to use up lots of fresh ingredients and feed a crowd.)
3.Prevent your LaCroix habit from disrupting your appliance's newfound order with a can dispenser that'll be easy to wipe clean.
4.Easily wipe up spills without disrupting everything in your fridge by putting in some cheap shelf liners you can pull out and rinse.
5.Prevent your crisper drawers from looking like a farmers market graveyard by lining them in produce life extenders that'll help keep your fruits and veggies fresher for longer.
6.And keep fresh herbs in tip-top shape with an herb-saving container instead of finding them wilted in a produce bag a month later.
7.Swap the baking soda and used coffee grounds for an air-purifying bag to make your fridge smell like less of a landfill every time you open it. AND it'll take up zero shelf space.
8.Keep bacon strips, cold meats, and cheese safer for longer with this handy deli keeper.
10.Divvy up your bulk buys into normal-size portions — both for storage and meal prep — with a vacuum sealing system to make sure you finally eat all that food from your ambitious Costco haul.
11.Bring stuff you'd normally shove to the back of the fridge within easy reach by placing bottles of condiments and more on lazy Susans.
12.Learn what shouldn't be chilled so you won't have to sacrifice precious space to the not-so-cool items.
13.And stash the stuff that shouldn't be in the fridge nearby with this slim, slide-out caddy that's skinny but tall enough to place in the weird little space between your fridge and kitchen cabinets. You can also put some pantry staples in here too.
14.Spare some shelf space by lofting beer bottles with these magnetic strips.
15.Or stack bev bottles (beer, soda, champagne, etc.,) easily on a simple rubber mat to prevent a wet disaster.
16.And keep opened bottles from making a boozy mess with this leak-proof wine saver that works whether the bottle is vertical or horizontal.
17.Give everything a name (and the date that it goes bad) with a label maker that feels very ~official~.
So it's *especially* important to eat what you have now to prevent hoarding and make food accessible for everyone. Hopefully these tips will help you do just that! Plus if you need some more motivation you can watch the every-delightful John Oliver's segment on food waste.
