one thing that will help with energy conservation but not so much with organisation, is to have a frige that opens from the top not the side.

Baskets and zip lock bags work well for us.

Meats/cheeses in one basket, fruits/veggies in another, etc. Liquids stand on their own.

Ziplock bags maximize your available space. Tupperware does not although we do use it for leftovers that will be used within a few days.

Absolutely. We all know that air flow us like fluid dynamics. The cold pours out the bottom making a vacuum so that warm can come in from the top. Top open is the best way to go. Also LOTS of insulation.

I installed a small computer fan on the inside when I installed the refrigeration system to help with air flow around the food, then I installed another on the compressor to cool it. After doing that I found that the compressor ran cooler and cycled off faster. Computer fans only take about 0.1 amp, so they are well-worth it. I also installed a few behind the bulkheads to circulate air and cut down on the boat smell.

The hanging baskets thing mentioned is also a great idea. Keeps the food separated/organized and allows for air flow.
