What you had for dinner often makes the perfect lunch the next day. That’s why most of us store leftovers in the fridge. The key to keeping last night’s dinner or meals preps fresh is storing them in airtight containers, like this set from LocknLock.
These 10 lockable containers are all leak-proof. You also get two of each size: 68-, 41-, 25-, 14-, and 6-ounce. They’re perfect to take to work or school because they’re microwave-safe. Then, when you get home, just toss your container in the dishwasher. Done!

You might not know this, but eggs should be stored on an interior shelf in your fridge in a container with a secure lid. Of course, you can just leave them in the carton they came in.

The lid on this container will ensure your eggs stay fresh for as long as possible. Plus, because it’s clear, you’ll easily be able to see when it’s time to add another dozen to your grocery list.

Whether you’re a fan of La Croix or Diet Coke, those large 24-pack cardboard boxes can really disrupt your organizational vibe. To get those cans in order and looking a bit more attractive, snag yourself a set of soda can organizers.
They’re perfectly sized to hold nine, 12-ounce cans each. And, again, thanks to their clear, acrylic construction, you’ll be able to see exactly which beverage you’re running low on.

If you can never find the ketchup or mayo when you need it, a fridge turntable is the perfect condiment organization accessory. The simple design features a 10.8-inch diameter, so there’s plenty of room for multiple bottles.

If your refrigerator already has multiple shelves, but you struggle to keep them organized, skip the bins and get some extra drawers instead. This two-pack can be used as large compartments, or they can be divided into four sections using the included removable divider.
You’ll need to measure the depth of your fridge to make sure they’ll fit—each drawer is 11.8 x 7.4 x 3 inches. To use them, just attach the frames under a shelf in your fridge, and then insert the drawers, and that’s it! You now have a new place to store everything from deli meats to veggies.
