kitchen tour

Welcome to the Top Organizing Bloggers Kitchen Tour. We each took a different area of our kitchen and are showing how we organize that space, I will be sharing how I organize my fridge and freezer in this post. I know you’re going to get some great new organizing ideas that you will be able to use in your own home so make sure you visit all the blogs at the bottom of this post.

Let’s start with the freezer. My freezer is narrow and each shelf is pretty small but I still like to be able to divide them using baskets.

Freezer Organizing 8

The baskets help me keep like items together and it’s easy to tell when I’m running low on something. The top shelf holds my gluten-free food and the kids popsicles. The next shelf holds breakfast foods and extra bread.

Freezer Organizing

I attached scissors to the popsicle basket so the kids could easily cut open the packaging instead of ripping it open with their teeth.

The next shelf holds frozen foods the kids can prepare.

Freezer Organizing 4

And the bottom shelf holds meat, chicken, fish.

Freezer Organizing 3

The top of the freezer door holds juices and frozen fruit.

And the bottom holds veggies and of course, ice cream. I clip the partially used bags closed with a clothespin. Not every freezer is cold enough to store ice cream in the door. Check it out in your own freezer to make sure.

Freezer Organizing 7

Now on to the fridge! I also like to use baskets in the fridge to keep certain foods together. It’s also a great way to separate lunch and snack foods for the kids. Umm, this was also the day before grocery shopping.

I have 3 drawers below. The top draw holds more of my gluten-free foods.

The middle drawer holds fruits and veggies.

And the bottom drawer holds lunch meats and cheeses, also tortillas and flat breads.

I like to clean out my fridge once a week. By doing it once a week it never gets too bad and it only takes a few minutes. As I’m unloading the groceries, I throw out the expired food, toss any old leftovers, and quickly wipe up any spills on the shelves.

Organized Fridge

A couple times a year I clean the fridge using a vinegar and water solution. You can also use baking soda on stubborn stains. Take a few minutes to clean and organize your fridge and freezer this week.

Welcome to my 3rd 31 Days Series! This series will be focusing on 15 minute organizing. There never seems to be enough time in the day to get done what you need to do without adding even more to it. That’s why I want to focus on getting small spaces organized in only 15 minutes a day. You might not have an hour or 2 but I’m sure you can find 15 minutes a day to work on a space. By the end of this series you should be well on your way to an organized home and the motivation to continue.

31 days of 15 minute organizing 4

I hope you’ll join me for a quick post everyday in the month of October as we get our spaces organized together. If you miss a day I’ll have links to all the days on this page. You can double up on a day to get caught up if you need too.

You’ll only need a few things to get started:
Timer (set for 15 minutes)
Garbage bag
Donation container

At the end of every week you will also be taking the donation box to a donation center.

I will be posting a picture relating to the blog post everyday on Instagram. If you choose to follow along you can also post your pictures using the hashtag #15minuteorganizing and tagging me @odeleanne . I might even feature some of your organized spaces.

Get ready to start October 1st on your organizing journey. It’s going to be quick and painless and you’re going to be so happy with your organized spaces.

You can also follow along on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter.

Crispy Cheddar Chicken (gluten-free)

September 19, 2014

I try to convert my favorite recipes to gluten-free whenever possible. It’s sad when I prepare a meal and I can’t enjoy it along with everyone else. This Crispy Cheddar Chicken recipe is gluten-free but you could easily substitute regular crackers or bread crumbs and regular cream of chicken soup for the gluten-free version. Ingredients: […]
