With spring cleaning fully underway, you may have spent some of your free time organizing, decluttering, and refreshing your kitchen. While keeping the countertops tidy and the cabinets assembled are crucial to feeling like you have your space under control, if you’re anything like me, your refrigerator may be an afterthought. If bags of produce are piling up, expired items are getting shoved to the back, and you can’t seem to find what you need when you need it, taking some time to organize what you have may be just the ticket you need to a cleaner space. Not to mention, it will certainly make cooking easier.

However, if you don’t know where to start when it comes to organization, we wouldn’t blame you. Fortunately, IKEA is currently selling clear storage boxes that may be helpful in getting you started. Coming in three different sizes, the durable and stackable vessels with lids are ideal for holding vegetables, eggs, and cheese. The lid will help protect your food from grime, but also lock in odors so your fridge won’t smell. Plus, their clear exterior will help you see exactly what you have at all times.

“I downsized my fridge and then had to get clever with storage. These boxes are perfect for cheese, cold meats, salad, vegetables, and fruit and being see-through, you know what’s where easily,” wrote one reviewer. “I used a couple of these to make an easily accessible salad bar in my fridge. Love it!!” said another user.

One buyer even mentioned using these as pantry storage and we couldn’t love the idea more. These would be perfect for organizing granola bars, nuts, and even dry goods like pasta, rice, or crackers.

You can grab these from your local IKEA or on the IKEA website for between $3.99 and $5.99 each, depending on the size.
