The art of fridge organization is not all that different from playing Tetris: Both involve strategically moving items around to maximize vertical space. And when weird gaps or buildups start to form, things can get stressful real fast. Once you find a system that works, though, it’s all fun and games from there. And one of the smartest fridge storage systems just hit Dollar Tree shelves — for only $1.25. 

A good place to start when it comes to organizing your fridge is with containers made to work with existing shelving and unused space. And believe it or not, the answer to smarter fridge storage is probably more simple (and affordable) than you think: Dollar Tree’s clear clip-on fridge baskets.

The baskets measure out to 8x7x3 inches, the perfect size for ripe fruits, raw (or cooked) eggs, fresh herbs, and blocks of cheese that often get crushed or hidden in lower drawers. The baskets are clear, so you’ll never have to deal with forgetting what’s in them until a suspicious smell or sight kindly reminds you! The clips hug the shelf and can easily be pulled in and out, with the basket snugly sitting below. Talk about optimizing space, saving time, and reducing food waste! They’d also make the perfect spot to put designated items, like snacks, refrigerated medicine, or school lunch fixings

Also hot on the shelves right now is Dollar Tree’s large egg holder shelf (as seen in the video above), which comes in white and also functions like a clip-on pull-out tray, conveniently tucking a dozen eggs away in adorable round molds. The store is quickly becoming a go-to spot for organizing the entire kitchen!
