Milk is one of those staples that, in many homes, every member of the family grabs and uses throughout the day. Make it a new habit to keep the carton of milk in the back of the fridge, not the front or the shelves in the door(s). Whenever milk is brought out of the fridge, its temperature rises, and because the front and the shelves in the doors take the longest to re-cool after the fridge is opened, a carton of milk that is placed there takes longer to get cold again, leading to premature spoiling. Placing it in the back of the fridge helps the milk get to its ideal temperature more quickly.
