Fridge Organization + Freebie

So one of my recent projects was
to get my fridge organized.
I clean it often,
but it gets disorganized again pretty quick.

Then I found {this post} at Clean & Sensible
and saw how she'd organized her fridge.

Love it!

So I went to my local dollar store
and got some cheap baskets
and then whipped up a few labels.

It took me about 30 minutes to
get it all cleaned this time,
but now everything has a place and a label
and my fridge has stayed organized for the last month!

The other nice bonus is now when things spill,
I just wash the basket instead of
having it drip over all the shelves.

For my basket labels,
I printed them on the regular computer paper
and then laminated both sides with laminate.
{Found here}

Then I used Velcro to attach it to the basket.
{Found here}

To apply the labels to my fridge bins,
I cut the laminate a half inch bigger than the label
and then placed the label with the laminate on the bin,
sticky side down.

Fruits Bin
The Bread Basket holds our loaves of bread
and our tortillas. 
The Dairy Basket holds our yogurts, cream cheese,
and open cottage cheese and sour cream containers.
The unopened items are stored behind the basket.
The Protein Bin holds our cheeses, lunch meats, pepperoni, etc.
The Lunch Basket holds items to make a quick lunch.
Jam, sandwich dressings, meats, cheeses,
string cheese, pudding, applesauce, Go-Gurts, etc. 
And a Misc. Basket for all those other random items!
And here's my {Free Printable} Fridge Labels!
Enjoy and happy organizing!
