A Little Organizing in the Fridge

Well Good Morning!  I'm back to blogging!  The last couple of weeks have been a whirlwind of activity for end of the school year events.  Between my school and my three kids' schools, there has been little time for blogging and anything extra.  I did find time to squeeze in a little organizing project I wanted to share with you.

Our fridge is just the right size for our cottage kitchen but can get cluttered up and disorganized very quickly with five people using it.  I knew we needed a better system for keeping it organized.... and I wanted to do it on a little budget.  Organizging and making a space look good doesn't have to take a ton of time or cost a lot of money.  Just tackling one area at at time can make a huge difference!

Here is what our fridge looked like before I got to it:

it was hard to find anything in it

So, I took a quick trip to our local dollar store and then got cracking.  I first took everything out... threw out scary spoiled food science projects and washed down the shelves and drawer.  Then I put things in general categories and put them in these cute bins.  I have seen them all over but wasn't willing to pay the price until I saw these at the dollar store... don't you just love the color?

I don't think this picture does the color justice:)

To help us keep things in their place, I found some pretty vintage labels on-line to print out.

you can find them here... they come in a few pretty colors and are editable!  
I printed them on plain white paper and laminated them but you could use labels ... 
I adhered mine with my glue gun... this way I can easily remove and replace them if need be

The whole project cost me $5 and change...  small cost but big impact.  Gotta love that!  And, it is saving us money... now that everything is organized, I can find what I need easily and leftovers are used up instead of wasted.  

Hope this inspires you to tackle an area in your house!

Praying you have many blessings and much joy!
