TikTok hacks are a dime a dozen, and admittedly I was late to the party; it wasn't until recently that I discovered the treasure trove that is Tiktok, and the one trick that opened my eyes? This refrigerator storage-saving suggestion. Seemingly, I have stocked my refrigerator wrong my entire life and didn't realize it until now.
Regardless of what refrigerator or model you have, the design is similar; upper and lower shelves, a door, and some may (or may not) include drawers. The upper shelves are for leftovers, drinks, and ready-to-eat food; the lower shelf area is ideal for ingredients slated for cooking dishes. The door happens to be the warmest part of your fridge, so it is best to store condiments, and lastly, the drawers are suitable for fruits and vegetables.
The issue? If you're like me, you're always looking for new kitchen storage ideas. Seasonal fruits such as watermelon or spaghetti squash take up excessive amounts of space, leaving little-to-room for your tomatoes or carrots; plus, if you're dealing with a compact model like I am? We have a solution.
