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!
