IF YOU notice that the items in your fridge are running low, these helpful tips can help.
An Irish TikTok star has marked the areas of your fridge that work best for certain foods, such as dairy or raw meat and fish.
Homecare influencer and author Laura de Barra, 35, laid out her tips in a video posted to her 27,000 followers.
According to the former London-based estate manager, the compartments in your fridge keep items at slightly different temperatures.
The drawers on the bottom are very wet, while the shelves above them are drier.
The bottom of these shelves is the coolest, while the top shelf is the least cool.
For this reason, it’s best to store raw meat and fish in the bottom shelf of the refrigerator, as they need to be kept cool.
On the other hand, the middle shelf is better for dairy items like milk and cheese, as well as cooked meats.

The top shelf is perfect for leftovers and ready-to-eat foods because they last longer than almost anything else in your fridge.
Also, the coolest part of each rack is facing the rear, so anything you want to keep extra cool in its section can go there.
Due to their humidity, the bottom drawers are the best place to store fruits and vegetables.
What about your refrigerator door? According to Laura, that’s the warmest part of the device because it’s exposed to room-temperature air whenever you open it up.
The shelves there are great for fresh herbs, spices and canned or pickled goods, coffee, and any beauty products that need to be kept cool.
