10 Clear Fridge Organizers to Help You Stop Wasting Food
Keep everything fresh and in sight with these refrigerator organization bins.
Fewer things are more frustrating than cutting down on takeout in favor of home cooking, only to find all of your hard-earned and delicious groceries have gone to waste. Enter the best clear fridge organizers that’ll help you easily identify your food so you can get to it while it’s still fresh.
Unlike storage containers with lids, fridge organizers are a type of bin that you can easily reach into during hectic mornings and rushed dinners. They also help promote fridge organization by allowing you to arrange your fridge in a way that feels intuitive to you.
If you’re looking to reclaim control over your fridge clutter (you’re not alone!), we’ve rounded up the best clear fridge organizers from some of our favorite outlets like The Container Store, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Target.
1. Refrigerator Organizer Bins
If the best things come in pairs, the best fridge organizers come in packs. This convenient eight-pack of best-selling fridge organizers measures 12.5 by 6.3 inches with a height of 3.5 inches, making them ideal for storing both shorter food items and containers, and taller ones like condiments and drinks. Each of the plastic organizers is stackable should you wish to save extra space, and the built-in handles allow you to easily maneuver them around or transfer them to the kitchen counter.

Free of hardware with optional dividers, the drawers make for a great solution to all that unused space between two shelves.
3. Fridge Binz
Drinks are notoriously tricky to store because they tend to roll forward when placed horizontally, and they’re often made of delicate glass that isn’t compatible with everyday jostling. At 13 by 9 by 4 inches, this InterDesign bin can support most cans and juice boxes while fitting into tight spaces. It includes feet to keep it secured to your fridge shelf, and its curved shape allows a single drink to descend, giving it a novelty vending-machine-like vibe.
