You straighten up your house on a near-daily basis, but when it comes to your fridge, it’s probably in constant disarray, especially after you hit the grocery store. We feel you. It’s easy to just shove everything in there and think the problem will solve itself — I mean, it kind of does, as you eat the stuff that’s in there. Plus, that mess is easy to ignore because you can just close the door and poof! The mess is gone.
But here’s the big advantage to keeping your fridge in tip-top shape: It will reduce food spoilage. Ever look in the back of the fridge and find broccoli you bought two weeks ago, now unusable? Simply put: You can’t eat the food you can’t see. And if you don’t eat the food that you buy, it’s cash in the trash.
