For Busy Parents

This is a great fridge "makeover" video by Pretty Prudent where a time-crunched mom's refrigerator is reorganized and revamped for less than $100. The focus is on helping to make this mom's mornings less chaotic. Jacinda and Jaime offer awesome tips, like using dry erase markers to keep track of expiration dates and preparing grab-and-go snacks and drinks for the kids.

For Glam Gals

Nikki from AtHomeWithNikki might have one of the most beautifully organized, and dare I say chic, refrigerators I've ever seen. If you’re looking for ideas for pretty containers and storage and you love the look of consistency, watch this video immediately. You might tear up a bit when you compare Nikki's refrigerator to your own (I did!), but you'll definitely be inspired.

Plus, What's In My Fridge?

For those of you that are voyeurs like me, check out this "What's In My Fridge?" series of videos on YouTube. True confession: I find myself staring just a bit too long at people’s shopping carts when I’m in line at the grocery store, so this is a fun way to spy on people’s refrigerators in a non-creepy way and get ideas for things you might have missed at the supermarket. Win, win!
