Do you have any recommendations?

Editor: Ingrid, this is a good question! How do you shop for and store produce when you have very little fridge space? Personally, I don't find that the crisper in my refrigerator is all that effective. I store jams in one drawer, and citrus in the other. Other than that, I try to only buy produce that I will use within a few days.
Also, I find that some hardy greens (cabbage in particular) do fine outside of the fridge for a couple days. Potatoes, onions, garlic, ginger, and other root vegetables don't need to be refrigerated at all, and oranges and lemons are OK if left in a cool spot for a few days.
Readers, what other advice and tips would you offer to Ingrid?
