The $11 Storage Hack from Amazon That Instantly Creates More Space in Your Fridge
As a young adult who still lives with my parents, I’ve heard plenty of other college grads in similar situations share horror stories of constant arguments, invasions of privacy, and overstepping of boundaries. All things considered, I think I have it pretty good. Whenever squabbles do occur in my house, though, they almost always revolve around the kitchen. Whether all three of us are trying to cook at the same time, someone left a greasy spot on the stove, or the fridge is unduly full, the place that should bring us together often does the exact opposite. In fact, the latter is a consistent source of tension. Not only are our refrigerator shelves teeming with cookware and other leftover containers at all times, but the door compartments are also stuffed to the gills with condiment bottles and smaller items. Fortunately, there’s an incredibly cheap solution on Amazon (when isn’t there?) in the form of these QIENGO storage bags.
No, these aren’t a spin on the standard Ziploc bag. Instead, the mesh holders hook onto your fridge door shelves and essentially increase your storage space. Aside from the fact that you can install them without any assembly or drilling, these bags are handy because they can hold any number of lightweight things. They arrive in a pack of three, and each bag is divided into two pockets. You can store things you’d normally have in your refrigerator, such as fruit, beverages, and sauce bottles — but you can also keep things you normally wouldn’t put in the fridge, including straws, corkscrews, and produce peelers, in the name of pure convenience. Customers also noted that this product helps prevent waste. “My husband keeps ketchup and sauce packets from all over,” one reviewer wrote. “But these clutter up the fridge and end up in the back and under things. Now they are contained and used!”
For just $11 per set, you might as well get a few. After all, there are plenty of other places you can put these besides the refrigerator. The hooks have sticky backs that attach to any clean, flat surface. Adhere them to the wall in your closet, in the bathroom, or near your desk. As long as your items fit and aren’t too heavy, they’re fair game. One buyer used the bags for her makeup collection. “Great for holding lots of brushes or other essentials,” the reviewer shared. “I was able to organize everything for a quicker makeup routine, and it can store the makeup brush after washing and let it dry naturally.” Basically, there’s almost no limit to where you can put these storage bags and which small items they can hold. And, that price is just unbeatable.
