9 Simple Tips to Keep Your Refrigerator Organized

January 25, 2015 2 min read

 

Organizing your refrigerator can often feel like a puzzle and sometimes you resort to just shoving things in where they “fit best.” Here are a few tips for you to get the “best fit” and organization for your fridge and maximize freshness to minimize waste. Minimizing waste may also add to savings to your grocery budget.
  • Eggs – Eggs are an important staple to a healthy diet and we certainly go through our fair share. Store your eggs, in their original cartons, where the temperature is the most consistent – the middle shelf.
  • Milk – If you consume dairy milk, make sure it is stored on the bottom shelf, in the back, where it is the coldest. Do not store milk cartons in the refrigerator doors, as they are exposed to warm air each time the door is opened.
  • Nut Milk (Almond, Soy) – To prevent possible freezing, store nut milk on one of the middle shelves of your refrigerator. If it does freeze on the bottom shelf (this has happened to me), it is not ruined, just move it up higher.
  • Other Dairy Products (Yogurt, Sour Cream, Cottage Cheese) – These items should also be stored on the bottom shelf where it is cold, for the same reason as milk. Try to keep items accessible and the expiration dates visible if you can.
  • Butter and Soft Cheeses – Butter doesn’t need to be stored where it is super cold so it is fine to store it in the dairy compartment on the door. Other soft cheeses, such as goat cheese or Brie should be kept in airtight containers once they have been opened to prolong freshness.
  • Packaged Raw Meat – Meat should always be stored at the very bottom of the fridge. In a drawer if possible, where it is coldest. Raw meat should never be stored on the top shelf, because if the juices drip, this will result in cross contamination of other foods.
  • Fruit – Store your fruit in your crisper drawer where the humidity is the lowest. Try to keep it in the original packaging and do not wash it before storing it. Water can cause mold and bacteria to grow, so it is best to wash your produce right before using it.
  • Vegetables – If you have a drawer marked vegetables or high humidity, store your vegetables there. Veggies tend to do better with a bit of humidity. Keep them in their original packaging, and once again, do not wash them until you are ready to use them.
  • Condiments – Because vinegar and salt are natural preservatives, and condiments are relatively high in vinegar and/or salt, these items can be stored in the door. Examples include, ketchup, sauces, dressings, olives, pickles, salsa, etc. Nut oils such as sesame or walnut oil should be stored here as well as nut butters and jams.
Other items that you may frequently buy such as tomatoes, onions, garlic, squash, sweet potatoes, lemons, limes, and olive or coconut oil do not require refrigeration and should be kept out on shelves at room temperature.

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies such as ours are Essential Services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
