I thought of this topic when I was home at lunchtime. I was going to grab a candy bar to take back to work and eat later but in the same drawer I had the chocolate bars, I had some diet sparkling cranberry juice so I decided to grab that instead, and congratulated myself on accidentally putting the chocolate near the cranberry juice where it would help me the most on my diet. I don't usually keep my candy in that drawer so it was a happy accident it ended up there.
My refrigerator has an ice maker in the freezer but not an ice or water dispenser. I sort of wish I had a fridge that had that feature but then again the people I know who do have the ice and water dispenser complain about it dripping all the time and a lot of them place a cup there when it's not in use to catch the drips.
The top shelf of my refrigerator has a tendency to freeze up so I have to be careful not to keep eggs, soft drink cans, or bottled water there. I usually use it for leftovers, so they're at eye level when I open the fridge and can remember to eat them before they need to be tossed.
To the left below the 1st shelf is a drawer where I keep cheese, cream cheese, and chocolate. Sometimes if I have small leftovers, like hamburger patties or steak and the top drawer of the refrigerator is full, I'll put them in this drawer.
On the second shelf, I put my eggs under that drawer and this is usually where bread, cottage cheese, yogurt, pickles, smaller items like that goes. I hate keeping bread in the refrigerator but in Florida you almost have to, especially if you live alone or don't have many people eating bread. Otherwise the humidity makes it go bad pretty quickly.
On the bottom shelf, I put tall items, like milk, ketchup bottles, water bottles, juice, etc. I also have a juice bottle I washed out and keep filled with water. I use my little bottles of water mostly if I want to take some water to go, like to work or to the park, and pour water from the juice bottle when I'm drinking water at home.
In the bottom drawers of the refrigerator, I keep canned soft drinks in one drawer and fruits and vegetables in the other. Or, if I'm dieting, I won't have any soft drinks so I'll put vegetables in one drawer and fruit in the other.
Butter, small condiments, salad spritzers, soy sauce, BBQ sauce packets, refrigerated biscuit, sweet rolls, and breadsticks, and other miscellaneous items go in the door of the refrigerator.
