    I love all your ideas! I'm a big "labeler" but never thought of the refrigerator doors. Thanks for sharing.

    For some reason, I don't think that the wines belong in the condiments section. *smiles*

    Tried keeping beef, chicken, & pork on different shelves in freezer, but got out of habit when I had a roommate will revisit and try and organize the fridge, it does make a difference. Thanks for the tips
