Organizing Your Fridge and a Fridge Coasters Giveaway ~ Organize your Kitchen Frugally Day 25

Welcome to Day 25 of my month long series “How to Organize Your Kitchen Frugally in 31 Days”.  Every day during the month of October I will be sharing an organized space in my kitchen with you.  My goal is to inspire you and give you ideas on how you can organize your kitchen.

If you missed it, you may want to read why I’m embracing my outdated kitchen.  It might give you a little perspective on why the pictures of my kitchen organization won’t be “magazine worthy”, but helpful for real life organization.

How to Organize Your Kitchen Frugally

I’m so excited for today’s post, because not only do I get to show you how I keep my fridge organized, but YOU have the opportunity to win one of my favorite products!!

When I was planning this series, I decided to ask my long time sponsor, Fridge Coaster, if they would like to sponsor the post.  They said yes and I would like to send a big shout out to them!  They are super generous and are offering $75 worth of Fridge Coasters to one of YOU!!!!

Fridge Coasters

I have to admit that this isn’t the way a blogger normally shares a product they like, but since I’m the skeptical type and like to be told WHY a product works or doesn’t, I thought you might like to know how Fridge Coasters have held up in my fridge.  They get constant use in this house!  I homeschool my four kiddos, so with 5-6 of us taking things in and out of the fridge all day, every day, you’ll get to see how Fridge Coasters stand up to such “high-traffic”.

Let’s start with my cleaned out fridge.  It literally took me 10 minutes to have my fridge looking this clean.  I took out all the glass shelves and wiped them down, plus I wiped out the drawers.  I deliberately timed myself when I cleaned it so I could tell you how fast it went – 10 minutes.  Seriously.

Cleaned Out Fridge

Are you thinking that my fridge must have been perfect beforehand?  Let me assure you it wasn’t!  It turned out to be “perfect timing” if that’s possible, but just the other day, one of my kids put a glass of milk on the TOP shelf of the fridge.  And of course – it got knocked over.

Before Fridge Coasters, I might have cried.  But if there was ever a test, that was it.  And they came through – big time!

Here is a picture of what the Fridge Coaster looked like after months of use when the glass of spilled milk on it:

How Fridge Coasters Stand Up to Spills

I know it looks gross, but I was THRILLED at how much milk that sucker absorbed!  Fridge Coasters are not plastic.  When I first heard of them, honestly, I thought I didn’t need them.  I figured I could just as easily wipe a glass shelf as wipe a plastic liner.  But that was because I didn’t understand that Fridge Coasters are not plastic – they are made of recycled wood pulp.  They are thick and super absorbent.  And that absorbancy was put to the test with the spilled glass of milk!

Instead of having to take every single thing out of the fridge and wipe them and the fridge down top to bottom, all I had to do was take the Fridge Coaster off of the shelf and wipe up the little bit of milk on the glass.

Want to know how my veggie drawer has held up?  Just as well.  We eat veggies frequently so the veggie drawer gets a lot of use.  Before I started using Fridge Coasters, my fruit and veggie drawers looked pretty gross.  For some reason it just seems like they are always dripping juice or dropping little leaves, etc. making a mess in the drawer.  Obviously it’s time to replace this Coaster after months of use, but look how easy it will be to clean the drawer!

How Fridge Coasters Help Keep Your Fridge Easy to Clean

It is literally THAT simple to clean your fridge when you have Fridge Coasters.

After removing all the food, I took the shelves out, easily wiped them off and put them back in.  It took me more time to dry them than to clean them.

I’m having a lot of company this fall, and since many of them are staying at my house and will be using my fridge, I wanted it to look pretty and fall-ish, so I decided to replace my blue Coasters with yellow.

Fridge Coasters - Keep Your Fridge Clean and Organized

I love the designs Fridge Coasters come in, too!

Doesn’t my fridge look so pretty?  I just love it!

Fridge Coasters Make Your Fridge Stylish and Easy to Clean

Are you wondering how long Fridge Coasters last?  Well, that depends entirely on how much your fridge gets used.  If you have lots of kids using it constantly like I do, you’re going to have to replace them more often.  Is it worth $50 or so per year to me?  You bet!  I am not interested in scrubbing crusty spills from every crevice in my fridge.  If I have another big spill, it’s a cinch to clean up.

I try to get the most use out of them as possible.  The right bottom shelf is the most highly used place in our fridge.  In our high traffic situation, that one lasts for 2-3 months.  But, the one on the left bottom shelf probably would last a year if I let it.  What I usually do is when the right one starts to look worn, I turn it around and switch it with the left one.  Since I keep bins on that shelf and the used part is in the back, it still looks great.  So I’d say I typically get 4-6 months out of a set.  The condiments in the door don’t tend to drip much, so I’m saving those coasters for when I go back to using blue.  I probably get 9-12 months out of the door Coasters.

Using Fridge Coasters

So are you wondering how I organize my fridge?

One of the best things I ever did was to put Fridge Binz in my fridge.  It’s simple for my family to put things away because the bins are labeled and the items are always in the same location.  If we have lots of company and the fridge is crammed full of food, I move things around and make space.  So what!  It’s easy to put back once we get back to a normal amount of food.

How to Organize a Fridge with Bins

The top left shelf is where I keep leftover food.  I keep my leftover food in these dishes and label them with a dry erase crayon so I know exactly how long they’ve been in the fridge.

Organizing a Leftover Shelf

On the next shelf down, I keep condiments like mayo and miracle whip in one bin and meat in the other.  I keep my Fridge Coasters looking nice longer and my fridge clean as a whole by using bins for things like meat that is defrosting.  If it ever leaks, I simply take the little bin and wash it out.  It’s simple and keeps the fridge clean.

I also have bins on the right side.  I decided not to use Fridge Coasters on that side because I rarely put food that could spill and make a mess on those shelves.  I keep eggs in a large bin and filled the inside of it with the egg packaging that came with a large box of eggs.  I also keep dairy items like cottage cheese and sour cream in their own bin.  I have a separate bin for butter (or margarine).

Using Fridge Binz to Organize a Fridge

Whenever I have company, they can’t believe my fridge.  It looks so nice and it’s so easy for them to help put things away because they don’t have to ask where things go!

On the bottom left shelf I keep other condiments like the large mustard refill, applesauce, Parmesan cheese, etc.

Using Bins to Organize a Refrigerator

On the bottom right, I keep large pitchers, juices, coffee creamers, etc.  I keep our milk in the door because we use it so fast.  I realize that the door isn’t the best place to keep your milk if you don’t use it often, but we go through 9 gallons a week here, so spoiled milk isn’t a problem!

Organizing the Fridge Door

I keep deli meat and cheese and the kids’ snacks in the pull out tray so they can easily access what they want.  I put long narrow bins in that space to keep the snacks and deli food organized.

Cheese and Snack Organization in a Fridge

So that’s how I organize my fridge.  The bins have worked fabulously for years and I’ll never go back to a bin-less fridge. :)

  35. Laurie G says:

    ValerieO

  40. Michelle D says:

    Sounds like a great idea.

  41. Tera says:

    I’ve been using plastic liners for a while now & found them to be helpful. Very interested in trying Fridge Coasters! I have 2 teenagers & a pre-teen, 2 of which are special needs. The easier clean up can be, the better!!

  42. Katrina M. says:

    I would love these fridge coasters! I hate cleaning my fridge, and with 8 kids, we definitely can make a mess quickly. I think this would really help!

  43. Karen says:

    Just about everybody’s frig needs a good cleaning. I was wondering how the coasters worked and your story explained it well. Now I’m hoping I can win so I can try them out! Love your daily “show and tell” on organizing your kitchen.

  44. Letty says:

    Now that I know how to use this coaster, I will give them a try.

  45. Jennifer says:

    I have followed so many of your organizational tips over the past month. This may be another I want to try. My only question is: I normally have to wipe down the fridge because the kids get jelly outside the container and it leaves the glass sticky. How do the coasters work in the same situation (if one chooses not to use bins to put jelly in just having it on top of the coaster)?

  46. Mary says:

    To see how clean my fridge will look like after using these

  47. Sara says:

    I have been wanting to try these out!

  48. candice says:

    I hate cleaning my fridge! With little ones in the house as soon as the door opens they are reaching for something and usually spill a little. This looks like it could solve that problem.

  49. Aarika Cottingham says:

    Cleaning out the fridge is one of my least favorite chores, but I always love it after it’s done. It makes me feel so organized. That’s a place that everyone sees…even company! Fridge coasters seem very functional and fun

  50. Rebecca F. says:

    I would like to try these because not only do they make cleaning easy, but they are so cute!

  51. Diana says:

    Would love to have these in the frig for quick and easy cleanup!

  52. Michelle says:

    No matter how organized the kitchen looks, the fridge seems to get the least amount of organization. I would really like to try the Fridge Coasters and see if that area would come into total organization as well. I have loved following your suggestions all month. Hope I win!!!

  53. Sheila says:

    I would love to try these. They make the frig look more polished/finished.

  54. dana says:

    I love this article, thank you.
    dana

  55. Jess McCarthy says:

    I’d love to try them! All of this time, whenever I would hear about them, I would wonder why anyone would line their shelves with plastic liners. THANK YOU for clarifying they are wood pulp and are absorbent. Now it makes sense. :)

  56. nicole says:

    these would be so wonderful! I’m going to buy my mom a set. If I’m lucky enough to win those will be mine!

  57. Jamie says:

    I’ve tried the knock-off version of these using placemats but would love to try the real thing!

  58. Shoshana says:

    I have a set in my fridge now and they’re awesome. They make my fridge pretty :) I’d love to get more so I can switch them out when they eventually need to be.

  59. Nancy Carr says:

    A great idea. I must try these and help keep my refrigerator cleaner. Thank you.

  60. Christina N says:

    I’d love these to help dress up the inside of my fridge.

  62. Cheryl F. says:

    I’d like to try Fridge Coasters so I can make my fridge look better and reorganize it.

  63. Ashley C says:

    I’m building a new house and would love to have the fridge coaster in my new fridge!!!

  64. Carrie says:

    Fridge coasters. GENIUS. Just genius.

  65. Rita says:

    I would love to try these! My fridge can get really dirty and these would also make my fridge so pretty :)

  66. Renee says:

    These Fridge Coasters look amazing! With 5 adult foodies in the house our fridge can get pretty cluttered and messy.

  67. stephanie says:

    I want to live in your fridge! It is my dream…hahaha. Maybe I need to get out more.
    I would love these to help my design-challenged yet OCD owned fridge. I like when guests/company open my fridge and are not grossed out. I’ve been on the other side of that you see.

  68. Pat says:

    I sure would like to try the coasters! So pretty!

  69. Geraldine says:

    Love my Fridge Binz now that I read about the coasters I think they are next on the list.

  70. Anne says:

    I would like to win the fridge coasters ‘cuz my fridge is a mess.

  71. muriel says:

    I would like to try these to make cleaning the fridge easier.

  72. Debbie G says:

    I have become absolutely hooked on your website and blog! I just moved into a new house…well new to me! I trying to get everything organized as I unpack so unlike previous moves, I won’t start off behind. It is taking a bit longer this way but I am determined
    Anyway, I now have a side by side fridge and have been struggling with it’s organization and keeping it clean. I don’t have young kids at home but I do foster cats which keeps me busy elsewhere in the house! I also have back problems and the bending/reaching to clean a fridge is hard! I think the fridge coasters are a great idea that I WILL be using! Thanks so much for sharing your ideas!
    Debbie

  73. Amber says:

    Awesome fridge organization! I’ve always wondered about the Fridge Coasters so thanks for sharing your experience with them. I definitely want to give them a try!

  74. Jenny says:

    I want to pretty up my fridge!

  75. Paula says:

    It would be so nice to have such a pretty fridge and at the same time it is also so useful.

  76. Looks like such easy clean up with the Fridge Coasters. Would love to try them out.

  77. Jamie says:

    Would love to try these as my four kiddos are always spilling something and then everything has to come out and get a good scrub. These would save me lots of time.

  78. Lynn Lindahl says:

    When my frig is clean, I like to just open the door and look at it. It seems like frig coasters would make that feeling last! Would love to try them!

  79. Jodi says:

    Thank you! Your explanation was so helpful, I also thought they were “just” another plastic liner, why would I want to have to wash a liner and the shelf in the event of a spill. I am definitely adding it to my wish list but thanks for the opportunity to win!

  80. Courtney F says:

    I love all of your organization ideas for the kitchen. We are moving into a new house in a few weeks and your ideas have helped me get a plan for how to set ours up. I’d love to give the fridge coasters a try. With small children “helping” get their own snacks the shelves get sticky quickly!

  81. dani depoty says:

    my fridge is always a problem spot , maybe if it was prettied up it would more worth cleaning !!

  82. Vickie P says:

    I would love to try Fridge Coasters. I am constantly cleaning up spilled milk and ketchup, and these would make clean-up so much quicker!

  83. Joy says:

    I would love to try Fridge Coasters. I just think they will keep the fridge clean but also give it a little fashion oomph! Very interesting!

  84. Teija says:

    I am so in love with this whole idea. I would love to know the name and where you got each of the bins shown in your fridge. I know from experience that having a bin for everything in every drawer, shelf, closet, etc. keeps things from falling over and getting all mixed up.I must have these Fridge Coasters!!

  85. seattlesherryann says:

    Is there a link to the $18 Fridge Coaster promotion?

  86. Jennie Moeller says:

    I would love to win these fridge coasters. Not only are they super cute but the fact that they absorb spills is amazing. Things are always getting spilled in my fridge!

  87. Valerie says:

    Love your fridge, really great ideas i cant wait to impliment. I’ve been eyeing these for a while… Almost bought a poor substitute, but held back knowing these were what I wanted!

  88. Yami Richardson says:

    Can’t wait to try those! They look great.

  89. Denise says:

    I thought they were plastic too. Wondered why everyone liked them so much. I thought they were more for looks than function as anything spilled would run right off and end up on the glass anyway. Now that I understand they’re not I’m curious to try them.

  90. Kathy McMaster says:

    I use paper towels now. I would like to add the color and less mess to my fridge. I would LOVE to try them…

  125. Jill says:

    I’ve seen where you talk about these somewhere else on your blog & they look great! With 5 children at home, we get a lot of spills in the fridge. We also spend most of our money on things we need. While this is a great product, it is not a need right now. So, that’s why I’d like to try them out with this give-away! It would save me time on cleaning out the fridge. Thanks for the chance!

  126. Kathy says:

    I need organization in my frig. It’s so messy and things end up getting lost.

  130. Lois Ormsby says:

    I remember your previous post about these Fridge Coasters and was very impressed!

  131. Denise Stufflebeam says:

    These look really cool…sdly, I’m in desperate need of some organization and this might be just the jumpstart I need to get me revved up on the organizational cycle!

  132. Marcy says:

    I would like to try them but am concerned about lack of light filtering down my fridge so I am not going to pay full price. They aren’t cheap.

  133. kathy says:

    Love Fridge Coasters! Been using them a while… would love to get a new set for our second fridge!

  134. Becky Egan says:

    I’d love to try the fridge coasters. Looks like a breeze to clean and super cute!

  135. Colleen says:

    Never thought of putting eggs in another container, I like it. The fridge Coaster are awesome! Hope I win them!!

  136. MomofTwoPreciousGirls says:

    Two reasons…first, CHILDREN…nuff said.
    Second they are pretty! My house is so neutral…the hubby is very picky about things being very minimal and neutral. BORING! A little sunshine in the fridge when I’m making meals would be nice!

  137. JoAnn says:

    Loving this series! Thanks for thechance to win.

  138. Kate says:

    Can’t wait to try these. Also love that I can color coordinate it all. :o)

  139. angie mccort says:

    I love the way your fridge looks…. l think bins might be in my future!

  140. Katie says:

    Seems like every month or so I have a major spill requiring a full clean of a shelf. These seem like a great way to keep your fridge clean(er).

  141. Kim Jones says:

    I love your blog! Especially these 31 days of kitchen organizing, mine is driving me crazy! I couldnt have come across this series at a better time, Now my to do list for next week is in order! Kitchen organization here I come! Thank you so much for all your wonderful ideas!

  142. AnneSATX says:

    Well, of course, I’m skeptical and would need to try them myself to see that they are worth it, especially since they need to be replaced every now and then. Now your idea of labeled bins — that I will definitely try!

  143. Susan Moya says:

    As a family with five children, including two teenage boys, our refrigerator gets a lot of usage! I’ve never heard of Fridge Coasters before, but they seem great for keeping the fridge clean and neat! I will definitely purchase some to give them a try! Thanks for the tip!

  144. Lisa says:

    My fridge is in desperate need of reorganizing! I like the way you have your shelves placed, and I’m now motivated to clean out my fridge and rearrange things :) Looking forward to having a nice clean refrigerator, and those coasters would help a ton!

  145. Jennifer says:

    With two young boys keeping the house clean is a chore. Cleaning out the fridge is typically at the bottom of the priority list. I love the idea of the fridge coasters. They’re functional and fun!

  146. Anastasia says:

    I would love to try these! I also like the way you organize your fridge. I am going to clean mine out today and try it out! Thanks.

  147. Jennifer Lake says:

    I’ve heard more and more about Fridge Coaster! I love the way you’ve organized your fridge. Seeing yours has given me some great ideas about how I need to organize mine :-)

  148. Shawna says:

    I love how these look and would love to try them, especially since they help with spills. Spills are the worst!

  149. Hannah says:

    I live in an apartment with my partner, and a friend and her boyfriend. Sharing the fridge means that things get pulled in and out all the time and get spilled more often. Fridge coasters would be so helpful for clean up (especially since I am practically the only one who does clean the fridge!).

  150. Meg says:

    Those coasters are so cute! I tried to DIY them with that rubbery shelf liner and what a mess!

  151. Alexa Deuso says:

    I would love the fridge coasters because they are so cute and would help me to keep my fridge super clean! “As the house is cleaned, so the mind can be cleaned. As you enjoy a clean house, you will enjoy a clean and uncluttered mind.”

  152. M.J. says:

    Ready to try something new.

  153. Bailey says:

    These are genius. For me…. a clean fridge = a more organized fridge = more cooking done by this Momma! :) definitely think this will help things look more organized. And you could use different coasters for zoning!

  154. Stacie says:

    Great Blog!

  155. I have two young kids and this means messes! If these make it a little easier to clean the fridge, I’m all in!

  156. Melinda says:

    I clean houses for a living and so when I get home, trust me, the last thing I want to do is clean my frig out….again! these look cute and would save me much time which I could better spend with my hubby! :)

  157. Aimee says:

    I would love to win these because we are buildinga new home and have my dream fridge, a French door Fridge. this would protect and look stylish! Love these!

  158. Tracy says:

    I was hoping you would do a post about frig organization! I wanted to see how you store eggs. I’ve recently been keeping them in a basket but now I don’t know what to do with the egg holder shelf that’s part of the frig. But I see you don’t have that predefined egg shelf. Any suggestions on what to store there other than eggs so the space doesn’t get wasted?

    • Ginny says:

      Hmmm. That’s a tough one, Tracy. I’m not sure what I would do with that space. I’d have to think about it. Too bad you can’t take it out. :/

  159. Stormy says:

    Stumbled upon this on Pinterest. What a great surprise to find the giveaway! Following & looking forward to being inspired !

  160. Stephanie O says:

  166. Erin says:

  167. amyjo says:

    these are pretty and neat!

  168. Rachel says:

    I’m so glad you explained how the fridge coasters are different from just a vinyl placemat/DIY project! Very excited about this product!

  169. Valerie says:

    These would make fridge organization easy and fun! Not to mention cleaning would be a breeze!!

  170. Marci says:

    OCD here and with my now working, I can’t ever catch a break to do a simple chore, heaven forbid the hubs try to help. I just am curious to see if its really worth it

  171. Jamie Dominique says:

    What a god-send you have been!!! I have utterly overwhelmed right now! I just went back to work (kicking and screaming) to help bridge the financial gap after my husband decided to open his own law practice (harder than one would think, btw). I have just discovered your blog and it has already helped me to take charge of my spinning-out-of-control life. A little thing like milk spilled in a fridge can easily send me reeling these days so I can’t wait to try something like the fridge coasters! They seem like a busy mom’s best friend….or one of them :-)

  172. Kai says:

    Love the idea of something “cleaning” up the spills for me. My family is not as big as yours but they still make a mess an sometimes I can’t stop to clean it up at that moment! Love the Fridge Coasters idea!

  173. Kari says:

    These would make my fridge so much cleaner and cute! :)

  174. Kaci says:

    I would LOVE to win this—- what a GREAT giveaway:) So cute– I would love these to help keep my fridge clean!

  176. Lisa Ross says:

    Love it! Thank you for the great tips!

  177. MaryB says:

    Well now, those are just neat!

  178. Jen says:

    With 2 little boys, everything gets spilled in our fridge. These would be great!

  179. Super cute! Never even thought about decorating my shelves in such a cute way AND being functional at the same time! Love it!

  180. Brittany says:

    LOVE !!!! Prefect to complete the rest of the organizing I have been doing around the house during my Maternity Leave:)!!!

  181. NIkki says:

    I would would be so excited to win these —- what an awesome giveaway:) I have started organizing my house thanks to your blog! Some really great tips! I would love to have this to put in my fridge!.

  182. Julia says:

    I’m so excited try try these great ideas – esp the fridge coasters and bins. I hate cleaning the shelves and drawers in the fridge.

  183. Amanda says:

    Would love to win these! We are due with our first baby in January and it would be so nice to clean out and organize our fridge before she arrives. I am in full nesting mode and would just love to have these fridge coasters :)

  184. adriane says:

    I love this idea. Right now I have shelf paper on mine!

  185. Jennifer B says:

    Toddlers and spills #1 reason I would love to try fridge coasters

  186. I don’t know how our fridge gets so dirty, but I’d love to have fridge coasters to make cleaning it out easier!

  187. Laura says:

    I would love to try these to help keep my fridge cleaner. I really thought they were just plastic and I have seen other people use plastic place mats in their fridges as substitutes. I figured that really doesn’t help you keep your fridge any cleaner, because now you will have a plastic place mat as well as the glass underneath to clean since it isn’t absorbing anything. These seem like a great idea!

  188. Michelle says:

    I’d like to try them so my fridge is cute and smells good.

  189. Rachel Sarine says:

    I love your organization ideas. They are great for this busy mom!

  190. Jennifer says:

    Love the idea of these–so pretty and functional. I hate the random stickies we get in our fridge. I’d love to try these!

  191. Renee Gravell says:

    I would love fridge coasters because I have 3 messy boys and I am constantly wiping out my fridge & the drawers. It would be so nice to have the fridge coasters in my fridge to soak up all the spills & drips.

  192. Lisa says:

    I think I will try them. It is just my husband and me so the messes aren’t usually very big so these might last a while.

  193. I’m excited about the chance to win and get my frig looking great!

  194. Stacey says:

    I am officially beaten in the “gallons of milk per week” dept! My two middle Manlings (14 & 17) can take care of 6 gallons by themselves. Thank goodness the older one and the Baby can’t drink it. I’d need to buy a cow!

    I love this whole post! I can relate to about 99% of it, and things get spilt in our fridge every week. Honestly? I wasn’t so much interested in the Fridge Coasters (although those are cool and I wouldn’t say no a set), but I was just talking to my hubs the other day about a second fridge–and I really like yours! Where did you get it?

  195. Amy says:

    I love ur blog!! And I want some Fridge Coasters so bad!!! Thank u for all you do!!! :-)

  196. Aimee says:

    I love those Fridge coasters. I’ve seen ones that were plastic, but not these ones before. Love that they help to absorb spills.

  197. Sabrina says:

    Awesome! I’d love these because I’m a single mom with a toddler and 2 jobs. I don’t have lots of time to clean so anything that helps make clean up quick is alright with me. :)

  198. Jane Parker says:

    I love the idea of an organized frig…..maybe the coasters would help me….

  199. Pat Gaston says:

    I don’t know how our fridge gets so dirty, but I’d love to have fridge coasters to make cleaning it out easier. My sister uses them and is a huge fan!

  200. Wendi Forcina says:

    Would love to replace my press n seal with these awesome things!!

  201. Cindy Baker says:

    I would LOVE to try out the Fridge Mats!! So excited about the giveaway!

  202. Sarah says:

    Ive had my eye on this pack, I hope I win!

  203. Carissa R. says:

    looks SOOO much easier!

  204. Kristina Velazquez says:

    I’ve been reading your blog the last few days, and came across this post. I would love to try fridge coasters. Cleaning my fridge is such a pain and it never occurred to me that there could be a better way! I’ll be adding these to my wish list if I don’t win.

  205. Kate McCoy says:

    Wow that is the most organized fridge I have ever seen! I love the idea of bins… I need to find a good price on those. Also love the coaster idea, I have never seen those! Nice to add pops of color in an unexpected place.

  206. Lauren Sims says:

    I first saw these on a different blog but didn’t really know what they were. I love your post about them and have a better understanding of them now. I first loved them for their bright colors and designs but I’m loving the funcationality of the coasters! Would love to try them out.!

  207. Tabathia B says:

    My fridge is small and I think this would help with keeping more items fresh and keeping fridge clean and organized

  208. Jennifer Coker says:

    Wow. I had always thought there had to be a better way than cleaning up all the sticky goo and crusty milk! Would love to win these or buy some later! We are moving this weekend so I plan to do the 31 days in about 2!!! LOL!

  209. Melissa C. says:

    Thank you for all the frugal ideas. I have been using different ideas of yours for a while now. So simple and doable, I really appreciate it!

  210. julie says:

    It’s been took long since I’ve cleaned my fridge.

  211. Katie says:

    Love these! My fridge seems to get messy quick so these would be great to use!

  212. Mary says:

    I have four messy kids these would be so helpful!

  213. Allison says:

    I have been wanting to try out fridge coasters for a while now. I would love to open my fridge and see everything neat and clean rather than chaotic and covered with spills.

  214. Caitlin S says:

    Have been eying these for months to help organize my fridge!

  215. melle e says:

    I hate opening my fridge and finding Yuck every where! And I hate scrubbing cold gross shelves with mystery spills….

  216. Lynda West says:

    This would be a great addition to my fridge. It would help with my time management.

  217. Melissa Overholser says:

    Never would have thought to make my frig not only organized and functional but beautiful too!

  218. Sandy says:

    I would love to use them in the produce drawer. I’ve got to organize like this! (Of course, do you have a spot for leftovers?) That’s the one thing that I hate is wasting leftovers b/c they end up in the back of the fridge.

  219. Ruth says:

    How cool are these fridge coasters, I’d love to add a pop of color & style to my fridge & to have everything easy to find would be so nice!

  220. Jane T says:

    Oh, but would I love something like this. Even if I don’t win, I am going to be hunting these great things. Even with just two of us, we seem to have spills and we forget what is in the drawers and things get kind of mushy in the drawers. Thanks for the heads up.

  221. Amy says:

    You inspire me to get off the couch and get organizing! My family says thank you!

  222. Alexa D says:

    Do you have any ideas/options for people with not as much fridge space and fridge shelving? Please help!

I love your sweet comments...
