Our fridge is a huge french door open (Samsung four door French if you’re googling), allowing us to fit almost every awkwardly shaped item in there with ease. The bottom doors however, are separated into two units; the door on the left is a freezer and the door on the right has it’s own temperature control setting which gives us the option to use it as a fridge or freezer. This is the main reason I chose to buy this fridge – also because I hate freezer drawers with a passion.
I keep everything in clear, BPA free plastic or glass containers and organise produce accordingly. Anything that I use regularly, I keep in OXO greensavers; these things are amazing; they keep your produce fresh for weeks and come with removable drainage baskets.
We plan our meals for the week ahead of grocery shopping, so I make sure the proteins and vegetables we need to prepare are readily available. Using a chalk pen, I label each container with its content as well as expiry date so we can keep track of freshness. Because I buy our produce with minimal packaging in mind, proteins are put straight into my glass containers by the butcher. I freeze meat directly in these containers and defrost according to our meal plan.
(Although I use chalk pen to label things my self, it is quite hard to photograph, so for the purpose of this blog post, I photo-shopped extra labels on the containers so you can see what I keep in each)

Look for good sales because these get pricy. I picked up all of my Decor Real Seal Glass containers from Harris Scarfe for half price. Then, I purchased my OXO Greensavers at Peter’s of Kensington. They sell out super quick there because they are significantly cheaper than general retail so you must get in quick!
