Ever wonder why your pantry or refrigerator space isn’t efficient?  Cupboard shelves and refrigerators are not round, but many containers are.  Why?

Purchase square or rectangular containers… they are pantry space savers.  Organize your fridge with odd-sized items on top shelf, eye level shelf for healthy snacks.  Since the door is the warmest, a great place for condiments.  Meats belong in their own special spot to avoid cross-contamination.

Another tip for freshness?  High producing ethylene gas products (apples, avocados, cantaloupes) should ripen outside the fridge before mixing with other greens.  Once ripe they can join their fresh friends in those crisper drawers.
