You Will Need
- Resealable plastic bags
- Small bottles and cans
- Fruits and vegetables
- Condiment limitations
Shrink food items
Buy small water bottles and soda cans and repackage other items in resealable bags.
Remove shelves to gain a few extra inches for larger items, or stack smaller items to maximize space.
Stay clear of frozen foods
Stay clear of frozen foods. Mini fridges don't stay cold enough and frozen foods may melt.
Stock up on fruits and vegetables
Stock up on the fruits and vegetables. They can be eaten raw and don't easily spoil if the temperature should rise.
Limit the number of condiments you have and only stock what you plan on using.
