When you think of kitchen organization, you might think of your drawers, spices, and pantry. But when was the last time you thought to Marie Kondo your fridge? It’s more important than you think. Recently, organization expert Krystal Guinn showed Cravings author Chrissy Teigen just how much an organized refrigerator can change the way you feel about your kitchen — and there’s a lot to learn.

Teigen invited Guinn to the Cravings office to break down her four-step philosophy to keeping a neat and tidy fridge. The first step is taking everything out of the fridge and giving it a good clean. Once you have a blank space to work with, the fun begins.

“Most importantly, we’re going to think about grouping,” Guinn told Teigen in an April 15 video posted to Teigen’s YouTube page. “We’re keeping like with like.” As Teigen points out, this tip also helps you see when you’ve run out of one of your favorite fridge items.

Then, it’s necessary to compartmentalize “to stay in the system,” Guinn says. Here, she uses clear acrylic lazy Susans and drawer dividers, but whatever you have on hand that fits your items will work.

Next, turn your focus to visibility to eliminate waste. Guinn suggests putting taller items in the back of the fridge so that they are always in sight. She also says you should use clear containers for leftovers to reduce the chance of forgetting about food until it goes bad.

And finally, Guinn says that employing uniformity on a daily basis will help you keep your fridge organized. Take the overall aesthetic into consideration and commit to keeping things neat.

Now that you’ve seen how great your fridge can look, there’s no going back.
