This one is for sure a no-brainer! Without a question, every household fridge needs an array of fresh fruits and vegetables. Now, you may be thinking, “I live alone, this is such a waste of food”.

Some of the best items to keep are apples, blueberries, beetroot, carrots, celery, and cabbage are able to last the longest in the fridge without going bad. We obviously suggest that you buy fruit and vegetables that you enjoy the most.
This next one is mainly for people who are big on dairy products and in particular milk.

Another great thing is that nowadays you get a huge variety of different kinds of milk from low-fat to full-cream and even almond milk…the options are truly endless.
Eggs are indeed a superfood, which is why they are on this list. Although they do have an expiration date, it is actually recommended to stock up on as many eggs as possible. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner, eggs are 100% essential to have in the fridge. Additionally, for those who love to cook and bake, eggs are a definite must-have. Not only are eggs very filling but they are a great source of protein. Oh, and did we forget to mention that they also provide our bodies with vital amino acids and essential minerals?

Who doesn’t love cheese? And with the endless options of different cheeses to choose from, you can’t go wrong with having this in your fridge. Not only is it a great snack but you can cook and bake with it and even add it to your salads or sandwiches. Of course, we all have different preferences when it comes to cheese but experts usually suggest that feta, parmesan, and cheddar are the top choices for “fridge essentials”. One of the downsides about cheese is that it don’t have such a long shelf life, so it is best to not buy too much cheese all at once.
