When it comes to organization, The Home Edit founders Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin have been known to use unexpected items to get the job done. Need a cute way to store wrapping paper? They suggest using a clear memorabilia stand to keep the rolls visible and standing up. Trying to figure out how to maximize your spice cabinet? Shearer and Teplin are all about using a lazy Susan or risers. And that’s just the beginning.
When we chatted with the home organization experts thanks to their partnership with Capital One Quicksilver (it gives you 1.5% cashback on every purchase!), they also shared a surprising tip for keeping your freezer organized.
The Tip: “Magazine holders are great in a pull-out freezer to store frozen foods and whatnot,” according to Shearer and Teplin, who list Lauren Conrad, Mandy Moore and the Kardashians as a few of their clients.
Yep, the same thing holding three years of Vogue back issues in your living room can make your frozen food easy to find. Think about it: They’re the optimal size for frozen pizza boxes and popsicles alike. Better yet, they can stand up or lay down, depending on the height of your freezer. And you can place several of magazine bins together to sort things based by category (i.e.: one for frozen fruit, one for veggies, one for breakfast, one for dinner etc.)
We found this handy-dandy clear magazine holder on Amazon for $12 and are already dreaming of the possibilities. Because, if we’re being honest, our freezer does look a little bit like a hot (cold?) mess.
