Raise your hand if you’ve felt personally victimized by your refrigerator’s “door open” alarm. Here’s how it usually goes for me: I open the fridge for a snack and subsequently spend five-plus minutes fishing around blindly for said item while my appliance’s alarm (meant to alert you when all cold air is escaping) goes off.

I’m frazzled. I’m confused as to why I can’t ever find what I need in such a small space. I’m nearly certain I definitely left the store with the yogurt I’m now searching for. In a panic, I grab the closest item (a bottle of ketchup) and slam the door shut just so the alarm stops beeping. I am without a snack. I am angry.

Sound familiar? If this plight has ever impacted your day, I’m sorry — and we’re here to help. Enter our latest and greatest find: YouCopia’s RollOut Fridge Caddy from Amazon. Just one look at this beauty had me instantly breathing a sigh of relief, and it only got better the more I read about it.

Designed to keep packaged foods and beverages stacked and accessible for grab-and-go ease, YouCopia’s rolling caddy is the answer to conquering all your refrigerator’s organization issues. Available in 4″, 6″, and 9″ widths, each caddy is equipped with a set of wheels at the back to make sliding it “in” and “out” seamless. The interior of the caddy is decked out with BPA-free clear plastic dividers that can be adjusted to make the interior compartments smaller or larger depending on your needs. The best part? The whole system requires absolutely zero assembly, so you’ll be up and running faster than you can think, “Where did I put the almond milk?”

Though you can keep smaller vegetables and pieces of fruit in these storage caddies, they’re best used for packaged goods like yogurt, apple sauce, condiments, snack packs, and more — basically anything that can be neatly stacked to save on room and make the most of your available space. I could even envision them being a great way to organize what you want to pack for your daily work lunch or what your kiddos can have when they get home from school as a pre-dinner snack. You can also use them to arrange bulk items by expiration date so you’re always consuming your favorite bites in the right order.

Over 1,000 happy Amazon customers have given these organizers five-star reviews, with many praising just how amazing they are on slim shelves or in older refrigerators. “This is an amazing organizer,” says one reviewer. “I bought the 6″ caddy and loved it so much that I bought the 9″ one too. It works great for storing yogurt in the refrigerator. Just pull out the tray when you want a carton. The wheels on the back make it easy to roll out and the feet on the front keep the caddy from moving around when you don’t want it to. When I buy more yogurt I just take the caddy out of the refrigerator and add the new cartons. It makes it easy to add new cartons and keep them in order by use date.”

Trust us when we say that these caddies are about to solve all your fridge issues. Well, maybe not all — we can’t exactly help it if your partner or roomie snags the last cheese stick. I’ll leave that up to you two to settle.
