A Clever Organizing Hack Might Be Hiding in Your Fridge
If you’re the lucky owner of a brand-new refrigerator, you’ll want to find a way to recycle your old one — or donate if it’s still in working condition. But before you do that, you should consider mining it for organization tools, like one Apartment Therapy reader did.
In an effort to “reduce, reuse, recycle, and save money,” AT reader and organizing enthusiast Muna Bahra kept the drawers from an old refrigerator and used them to organize her new one. Hello, free storage bins!
It’s a crucial last step you should take before kicking a fridge that simply doesn’t work anymore to the curb or a clever way to get the most out of an appliance now relegated to “garage fridge.”
Muna’s favorite part of her hack is how her old shelves look almost meant-to-be in her new fridge’s center drawer (see below). But, she says, if they don’t fit in the drawers, you should still try to use them in your fridge’s upper shelving or in the freezer.
Thanks for the tip, Muna!
