When it comes to organizing all parts of your kitchen, the fridge can be a truly epic beast. Not only is it an area constantly in flux with food coming in and out, but there’s lots of meddling going on, too. If you don’t have a rock-solid organizational system in place, chances are someone is going to come in right behind you and mess everything up while on the hunt for an afternoon snack.

At the same time, you might have seen the TikTok trend where creators “style” their fridges similar to how you would a shelfie, incorporating lots of traditional decor items (think pedestal bowls, a cheese platter, a faux bust vase with herbs coming out) to up the aesthetics of the typically utilitarian space. While some of the ideas are a bit out there for those of us who actually use our fridge for cooking and eating, the idea is still the same: We all want a space that is functional, organized, and not a total eyesore.

That’s where these chic pastel drawer organizers from Amazon come in. Far more practical than their TikTok counterparts, these handy baskets are designed to nestle beneath your fridge shelves, providing extra storage and making use of empty “air space” that often goes underutilized. Available in four pretty pastel shades, they expand from 8″ to 11″ to easily corral extras like eggs, fruit, bags of shredded cheese, and more. Each basket drawer even boasts ventilation holes that will keep whatever you stash inside fresh for days (just line with a paper towel if storing small fruit like blueberries that may sneak through the cracks).

While these drawers aren’t suitable for extremely heavy items (skip putting hefty meat or fish in them), they’re a great way to lend some aesthetic organization to after-school snacks, freshly washed produce, or small bags of nuts or seeds. Amazon reviewers also note that they’re particularly useful for camper or RV fridges, with one happy customer noting, “I have a small apartment-size refrigerator in my RV, and there’s not a lot of space to put things. These little drawers are perfect for what I needed!”

Others even put these shelves to work outside of the kitchen, allowing them to calm the chaos in spots like the pantry and bathroom. Says one reviewer, “I know that these are refrigerator shelves but I was looking for under-carrying shelves to fit on my thinner glass shelves that I have in my bathroom to put my nail polishes and other little accessories in. They were so easy to set up, just slide under the shelf. I like how it keeps the stuff that would normally clutter my space out of the way and is also convenient to access when I need them.”

So basically, if you’re looking for a happy middle ground between those trendy TikToks and absolute chaos in the fridge, we’ve found it. Plus, you score four drawers for under $25 — can’t beat that!
