How do I cover wire shelves so everything doesn’t fall over?
My apartment has wire shelves in the refrigerator as well as in the pantry closet. Everything I place on the shelves ends up toppling over and falling through. What can I use that is DIY, a.k.a. free if possible or very inexpensive, that can remedy this? At the moment, I am using large low-sided cardboard boxes from the grocery store, the kind of holds flats of berries in. But it is not ideal.

We used some thin wood cut about 1/8 inch smaller than the shelf itself. Just painted the wood to match the wire shelving (it was white so not to hard to match) so the wood doesn't look bad. If you want to get creative and recycle you can use the backs of cd covers.
Hello, I had the same problem with builders grade closet shelving and I used dollar store foamcore sheets custom cut to pad the shelving and protect my clothing and accessories from lined impressions.
Pick up cutting boards in assorted sizes from thrift shops, garage sales, estate sales, etc.
1/4" plywood would be the cheapest solution, and once painted in semi-gloss, would blend in really well.
Plexiglass....cut to size at Lowe’s!
Lowe has a liner in a roll in the area with shelving.it is plastic and same color as wire shelving.
And if you want FREE....get some heavy cardboard for the closet shelves. In the fridge I would go with something plastic because of the moisture.
I also used plexiglass in the fridge.
Ikea sells plastic shelf liner. It's pretty inexpensive. about 20 inches by 48. It's on the clear side with small ridges, heavy enough for the fridge. I have it in an extra fridge in the basement that also has wire shelfs, and that's what I used. If you're not near an Ikea you can find similar lining at Lowes or any home renovation store.
Dollar Tree sells 2 packs of disposable cutting mats. They are a plastic and about as thick as a piece of posterboard. They work well on wire shelves, can be cut to fit with regular scissors, and can be put in the dishwasher if they get dirty or messy. That's about the cheapest food-safe solution I can offer.
Lay heavy card on top of shelves or use open end baskets. Maybe change the shelf for timber?
