I am positive that one of the reasons for food waste is crowded, unorganized refrigerators. Just purchased food, as well as leftovers, get lost behind and under other items and spoil before they get used. Crowded, messy refrigerators can be discouraging and make us want to throw in the dish towel and head for the first drive-thru we can find.
We are just starting into the holiday season when you will likely need extra space in your refrigerator to thaw that turkey, make salads for the potluck, cool beverages, etc. I guarantee that you will save money by spending 1-2 hours cleaning your refrigerator out.
