Today I am sharing one of the most requested blog posts, which is how I organize my Samsung 3-Door Refrigerator with Hub 2.0. One of the reasons why I chose this refrigerator is because of its size. It seriously holds SO MUCH FOOD. It has made my life so much easier in keeping my fridge organized because there is literally a place for everything.
One of the features that I absolutely love about the Hub 2.0 is that I am able to view inside my refrigerator via embedded cameras within the fridge. This is such a game changer for me because now, I can just view inside my fridge if I am running out the door and need to check and see if we need milk or eggs or something real quick. It helps me keep all of my "ducks in a row" so to speak. This feature has also helped me stay on top of organizing my fridge in the sense that I know what we need and do not need. It is seriously a game changer for us organized folks out there.
So without further ado, let me introduce to you my family's refrigerator... because it's what is on the inside that really counts, right?
Like I said, I LOVE how much space this refrigerator offers. I feel like there is just so much I can work with when it comes to organizing and arranging where my food goes. As you can see, we eat A LOT of food... most big families do though, so I am not mad at that.
You can see that there is a specific place for everything (I am kinda OCD about that). Let me break it down for you so you can see a little more clearly on the specifics, and also share with you my little dollar store hack that I have been doing for a while to help keep everything super clean and organized.
Okay, so if you are a reader of the blog then you know I have kids. The main reason for my organization is so my kids have easy access to their favorite healthy snacks. On my right door, I like to keep apple sauce pouches (one of the kids' favorite and convenient snacks), cold brew (for the mornings that I have forgotten to make it the night before), and my almond milk and creamers.
The left door holds our sauces and condiments, as well as my cold pressed juices and Sawyer's lantus. Nothing fancy, but I like that everything still has a place.
Now, for the top shelf... nothing fancy, but again, organized. Just how I like it. I choose to keep my eggs in the original cartons that I buy them in because those are made to keep any kinds of smells or odors away from the eggs and will keep my eggs tasting fresher longer. I also have a space for extra condiments and other items in bottles or jars that we may tend to use. Lastly, I like to keep a few cold water bottles in the fridge just for easy grabbing when we are on the go. We go through these fast, so once they are gone we use our refillable water bottles because the water that our fridge dispenses tastes so clean and pure.
Middle shelves I use for milk and any produce that I may have purchased in bulk. We are big fans of apples, oranges, lemons, and cucumbers at the moment and I love having enough space to be able to buy a ton of these items and keep them in my fridge. I also like that I am able to buy more than one gallon of milk at a time, because this family loves them some milk.
Alright, now to my little dollar store hack... One of my favorite ways to keep my refrigerator organized is using these little dollar bins. You have noticed I use these for everything from condiments to produce. They hold everything in one place (so you don't have a ton of stuff just rolling around in your fridge), and it also makes your fridge look cleaner and more aesthetically pleasing.
Having our produce in these clear containers allows my kids to be able to see what is available for them to eat, which results in them wanting to eat healthy food more often and you know that this mama is here for that.
And speaking of produce... you can probably guess what I use my two Humidity Control drawers for, right? Yep, you guessed it... More produce! I have a space designated for our greens (spinach, lettuce, etc.) and a drawer that is designated for berries, fruit cups, and other smaller space-filling fruits.
The next space for organization is the CoolSelect Pantry, which, can I just say how much I LOVE this feature in my fridge??? It's so nice to have a designated space for my meat and dairy (this is something that I did not have in my previous refrigerator). I seriously am obsessed. On the left side of this drawer, you will see I have my meat/fish selections placed neatly. I don't buy a ton of meat so I don't feel like this space ever gets over crowded. On the right, I have my dairy items- cheese assortments and gogurts (another one of the kids' favorite easy snacks).
This drawer is low enough to where both Sawyer and Colt are able to open it with ease and get their own snack should they choose to, although I still like for Colt to ask me first so I can help monitor his refrigerator usage (don't want him to accidentally leave those french doors open).
The last place of organization that I want to share with you all is the freezer drawer. There are two levels of the freezer drawer in my Samsung 3-Door Refrigerator. I have made a designated "Kid Drawer", which houses all the easy food items for when mama is in a bind and we need a quick meal or snack. Honestly, I feel like every mom needs one of these drawers. They can be real life (and time) savers.
I also have my personal drawers on the bottom part of the freezer, which lies underneath the kid section. This is where I keep my frozen fruit, frozen veggies, some of my favorite ice cream, and frozen meats that I use for meals throughout the week.
I hope you guys enjoyed this little tour of our family's refrigerator! It's nothing super fancy in terms of keeping it organized, but it works for us. The reason we are able to keep it organized is primarily because of how spacious and user-friendly our Samsung 3-Door Refrigerator with Hub 2.0 is. It fits our family of five's needs to a T and we could not love it more.
