How To Organize Your Fridge To Minimize Waste (And Stress)
If you’ve got a large container of leftovers that’s being eaten a bit at a time, transfer it to a smaller container, McCubbin says. “We tend to think that once we put something in a certain container, that’s its forever home,” she adds, but if organization is your goal, you’re better off saving the space and finding something smaller.
McCubbin notes she’s a big fan of glass storage containers, as they’re stackable and can go from freezer to fridge to microwave to oven to table. Plus, they’re BPA-free and last for years. She’s also really into silicone food storage bags. “You can tuck them in little spots to maximize space; the seal on them is great, so you can put liquids in them, and the ones that have the flat bottoms are terrific for leftovers,” she says.
