It’s no coincidence that refrigerators are typically built without see-through doors. Having a solid door to hide what’s inside — a mix of leftovers, fresh and soon-to-expire ingredients, and possibly some takeout containers — is a great convenience. However, if you’re ready to get your fridge in order, we have some helpful organizers that will do much of the work for you (and make it easier to keep your fridge neat going forward).

Because most refrigerators don’t come with their own organizing devices, they need a little outside assistance. The organizers and storage tools below will corral your food into manageable areas and provide some much needed structure for keeping groceries neat and tidy. They also work wonders on beverages — canned and bottled — and prevent you from losing food and letting it go to waste. Add some of our finds to your fridge and watch the clutter disappear.

Do you have any fridge organizers that you swear by? Tell us about them in the comments below!

The Container Store

If yours is a household that goes through a lot of LaCroix (or any other canned drinks), this sturdy organizer will make a world of difference. It lets you line up cans inside and use the shelf on top for extra storage. No more worrying about can-valanches every time you want to grab one.

Perhaps your fridge doesn't have as many closable drawers as you'd like, in which case, you could certainly do with a couple of these lidded bins from QVC. The duo comes with one small and one medium bin. Together, the two will neatly store fish, meat, produce, and anything else you don't want sitting out on an open shelf. And at just $16, they're a steal.

When we talk about fridge organization, we're not just talking about the inside. Put too much on the outside, and your whole kitchen ends up looking cluttered. Opt for this handsome magnetic rack instead and it'll corral all sorts of stuff — a roll of paper towels, linens, frequently used spices, etc. — in one neat, organized, and stylish grouping.

Maybe the most versatile beverage organizer available, this simple silicone mat has two sides — one for holding cans and one for holding wine bottles — and takes up zero space. Set it in your fridge and you'll always have a convenient place to keep cans and bottles of different shapes and sizes safe and secure.

Uncommon Goods

We're big fans of hanging things from the ceiling — in the kitchen and in the fridge. These magnetic strips use peel-and-stick adhesive to affix to the roof of your fridge. Once installed, just use the magnets to hold up bottles of beer or soda. With them up and out of the way, you'll free up a decent amount of space.

We often include turntables among our most useful kitchen tools — and that's for good reason. They're just so great for seeing and accessing little bottles and jars! We especially love this turntable because it has a non-skid base that keeps everything safely in place.

Storing wine bottles in the fridge can be tough: Put them on the door and the necks might hit the shelves, lay them down on a shelf and they roll around whenever you take something else out. This plastic holder solves both of those issues by letting you store wine on your fridge shelves in a compact and safe way. We recommend grabbing a few of them to stack up so you can store multiple bottles.

You can buy most of these bins separately, but what good does it do you to have one-eighth of one shelf organized if the rest is chaos? Get this complete organizing set and you'll be able to tame every single section in your fridge, from produce to condiments.

This riser has slim legs that stay out of the way and hold up a durable shelf that can be raised or lowered to meet your food storage needs.
