Frigidaire Gallery Custom-Flex Refrigerator

100 Ways to Organized

When I was presented with the opportunity to take a new Frigidaire refrigerator for a “test-drive” and try it out, I jumped at the chance. I’m an organization freak and I get excited about any opportunity to make my life even just a little bit more organized! Our current fridge was about 10 years old, and left much to be desired. I hated that I couldn’t move the shelves around and I was often unable to accommodate common foods in my fridge. I’ve got 2 small kids and throw a lot of parties. Nothing is more frustrating than creating a table’s worth of party foods, only to realize that you can’t fit them back in the fridge to chill until the guests arrive. I would make fancy cakes on beautiful cake stands, and not be able to refrigerate it. I would often be running around frantic and stressed that the food would spoil – especially in those hot summer months. This is just part of what makes the new Frigidaire Gallery Custom-Flex refrigerator so awesome! This new refrigerator comes with custom-flex bins that easily slide, move and adjust to suit your families needs. You can customize your refrigerator door however you want, whenever you want with a wide variety of different bins to choose from. Does your family love canned beverages? They’ve got a bin for that! Does your family love loads of condiments (like mine does), they have bins for that! Does your family like lots of different beverages that come in tall or large bottles? They have bins for that!

My major fridge issue is having storage for all those condiments that I may or may not be obsessed about buying. You just never know when you’re going to need a different sauce. Here’s a pic from instagram that shows all my lovely condiments arranged beautifully on my fridge door:

Testing out my new frigidaire gallery custom-flex refrigerator.  I may or may not have a condiment obsession.  You just never know when a girl is going to need a different sauce!  I love that I can customize it to fit everything I need #testdrivemoms

And that’s the beauty of this fridge – no two doors need to look alike. You can totally customize yours to fit your families needs. You won’t believe how easy it is to get organized.

Custom-Flex Refrigerator

Of course being a family with 2 kids meant that the kids would want to get involved too. This refrigerator has a large pull-out drawer that you can be placed wherever you want in your fridge and ours is loaded with snacks for the kiddos – from yogurt tubes to cheesestrings, to pre-washed and sliced fruits and veggies – the kids can easily grab a snack whenever they are hungry. As a busy mom, that means so much to me. It’s helping them become independent and giving them some sense of responsibility too.

Frigidaire demonstrates 3 common lifestyle types (families, active and entertainers) and what their fridge organization might look like. Maybe you can relate to one of these common lifestyles?? Visit the Custom-Flex Website to view the common configurations and to learn more about the different types of bins that are available. How would you organize your fridge? What would be your must-have bins?
