refrigerator space saver

Brad thinks my practice of cutting off egg cartons as I use the eggs is totally weird, but I happen to think it's brilliant. Why waste precious refrigerator space on a huge egg carton that only has two left inside? (Side note: my fridge does not have one of those nifty storage units for eggs.) Does anyone else do this? I can't be the only one!

Here's my tip: start trimming from the end withOUT the expiration date. I only had to make that mistake once.

How do you save space in the fridge?

I do this too! George is always looking at me wide-eyed like I'm crazy though! Glad I'm not the only one!

IF/when you start composting, this would also be a good practice because then you've already broken the carton down a bit for the compost bin!

This is brilliant! I've never thought to do that.

Also, you're not really supposed to put raw eggs in the door thingy because they risk not being cold enough.
