Things You Don’t Actually Need To Refrigerate

If you are anything like us, your fridge is probably a mess and full of food well past its expiry date. Again, much like us, your fridge is probably full of things that don’t actually need to be there in the first place. Not only will removing some of these things help you reduce clutter (and get rid of hiding places for your mother in laws leftovers) but believe it or not some food will actually taste better if it’s stored at room temperature instead!


Make sure you always read the labels just in case a particular brand or product requires refrigeration!

Take a look at our list and then let us know how much stuff you were able to clean out!

    Believe it or not, butter! I’ve been keeping my covered butter dish in a cabinet for the past 50 years and it’s always soft and spreadable. Now all my friends are doing the same.

    Obviously the person who wrote this has never lived in 40-45 degrees Celsius temperatures where tomatoes and many other fruits rot in a few days and oranges and the like come to the supermarket after being in cold storage for up to two years.

    In our temperate climate in Europe,I never put cheese or butter in the fridge, in fact I’m looking for a teeny tiny fridge because the only thing I consistently keep in the fridge is milk.

    This is interesting but I could do without your comments on how fast your household goes through food, as though this is the best thing in the world. Your comment about bread is especially out of line. To some of us, bread and peanut butter are essentially poison.
