Are you organising your fridge properly? It could be that you think you are but are not. One of the main reasons why people throw away food before it is enjoyed, could be down to how they are organising their fridge. Therefore, we thought it would be a good idea to provide some handy tips for organising your fridge so that you can reduce waste.
Eggs are best kept in a place where the temperature is balanced and consistent. So, the middle shelf is the ideal spot if you intend on keeping your eggs in the fridge. It is also important to keep them in the same packaging that you bought them in – don’t transfer them into that plastic egg container.
Milk, Cheese and Dairy
For some reason, most people tend to place milk on the top shelf. The best place is the opposite, on the bottom shelf and as far to the back as possible, as that is the coolest part of the fridge. For the same reason, it is best to store cottage cheese, sour cream and yoghurt in the same place. You should stack items up onto a turntable of some kind, as this will allow you to access them and check their ‘best before’ dates easily.
Raw, Packaged Meat
It may sound like common sense to anyone who has a basic understanding of hygiene, but you’d be amazed at how many people place this next item incorrectly. Any raw and packaged meat like bacon, chicken, beef or even bacon should always be kept on the bottom shelf where it is coldest.
