A Rookie’s Guide to the Mini Fridge

The best way to deal with this problem is to get a mini fridge for your room. Don’t make excuses like “your room is too small” or “you have a roommate who might eat everything.” Instead, think about how convenient it will be not to have to go to the kitchen to grab that ice cold…bottle of water.

A mini fridge not only stores food inside, but you can also place food on top of it. It is easy to just stack popcorn, cereal and pasta boxes together or place your bananas and other fruits and vegetables on top, making them more accessible for your cravings.

Now, the biggest problem you’ll face is being the only one in charge of  remembering when your food will go bad, but all you have to do is get a white board and write the expiration dates on it before you place any food in the fridge.

Usually, a mini fridge dial ranges from 1-7, 1 being the coldest setting, and 7 being the warmest. I set the control to number 3 or 4, as this tends to keep my food fresh. A friendly reminder: do not underestimate the power of a mini fridge. If you put your hand in the fridge, and you don’t think it’s cold enough, you’re probably wrong.

Trust me.

Once, I had food that looked like it took a trip to Antarctica overnight. Rookie mistake.
