Plastic bags are out if only because they often leak. You only need one rotten tomato and the bottom of your fridge is blech.
As Auspicious says, stackable containers are the way to go. Better for organising storage, easier to get at so less time with fridge open. Something turns to mulch, only one plastic container to clean out.
Maybe cos we live in a warmer climate but we can only keep fruit and veg like potatoes, onions, apples, oranges out of fridge. We contend with bruising by keeping soft fruit (peaches etc) separated by paper towels or soft cloth in containers.
For the first week or so on Raven we would vacuum bag and freeze meat, fish, poultry and the like. That way we have found that we can make it through a couple of weeks. The new girl has a small freezer. How that will work for us is too early to tell.
