1) Grab a few cardboard boxes, a laundry basket, or any Rubbermaid bins you've got in your home. Remove everything from the refrigerator. Keep in mind that condiments and/or vegetables and fruits should stay together. Keep dairy (milk, cottage cheese, sour cream, etc) in a separate container so you know these items need to go back in the refrigerator asap.
