[Day 3] Fridge Door: Kitchen Clutter Clear Out

Okay folks.  It’s day 3 of the kitchen clutter clear out.  I’m going to share some tips to help you de-clutter the door of your fridge. Have you noticed how I’m dividing kitchen organization into very small, manageable projects?  This is a good habit to get into. Simply divide your house into small organizing projects and organize for 15-30 minutes every day until the clutter is gone!



When is the last time you really looked at the bottles and jars that sit inside the door of your fridge?  Weeks, months, years??  The door of my fridge needed clearing out.



Here are the steps to de-cluttering the door of your fridge.

  • Remove every bottle and jar.
  • Fill your sink with soapy water and use it to wipe down the shelves and the door.
  • Check the expiration dates and toss out-dated items.
  • If you can’t find the date and you are pretty sure you purchased the item more than a year ago, toss it.  It’s not worth getting sick.
  • Categorize your bottles and jars and group the like items together:  burger toppings together, sandwich fixings together, dressings together, etc.
  • Be careful when purchasing condiments.  Only purchase an item if you are sure you will use it in the very near future, not because it’s on sale or something you want to use for a future party—i.e. the fancy pestos, dips, spreads, and other specialty items you find at William Sonoma or Trader Joes:).

How many expired bottles/jars did you find?
