The Office Supply That’ll Keep Your Fridge Neat And Organized
In the example of 10 plastic bottles of water, take advantage of vertical space by placing four of the bottles on their sides. They should be lined up next to one wall, not floating around in the middle of the shelf. Attach three large binder clips to the wire that’s closest to the bottles, positioning each clip alongside the top, midpoint, and bottom of the bottles. You’ll essentially be creating a little guardrail to prevent a mutiny of rolling bottles. Next, place three bottles over the bottom layer, cover those with two more, and the tenth bottle creates the crown of a pyramid. Congrats — your bottles are now shaped like a cheerleading squad!
This will work with wine or other glass bottles, but because they’re significantly heavier, we recommend that you stack fewer, placing two or three at the most on the bottom row and building from there. Using these clips is one of a couple dozen techniques you can use to keep your refrigerator under control, and they’re temporary. Move them around whenever your needs change.
