l
Open
the door as few times as possible.
Think
about
what you need before you open the door.
Get everything
out at one time. Keep foods orga-
nized so you won't have to search for what you
want. Close door as soon OS food is removed.

but don't
overcrowd
it so air movement
is blocked.
l
It is a waste of electricity
to set the refrigerator

that's
cold
enough.

Make sure your refrigerator
is not next to a heat
source such as a range,
water
