Can you use plastic shoe boxes, like the kind you buy in the dollar store, to store food in the refrigerator?

No, you always want to store your food in food grade containers. These special food grade containers, are made without chemicals, to keep chemicals from leaching into your food. Zip lock bags or plastic food containers from the store, are your best bet.

I wouldnt recommend it because food has to be stored in properly in containers specific for food only in to keep freshness and also to avoid mold and mildew.

Yes, make sure you wash it well first you. I have some in my refrigerator and it helps prevent messes from leaky packages like hot dogs, ham and even cheese.

They aren't airtight so they won't work like the containers made specifically to store food.
