what about stuff like pickles, olives, jelly, soy sauce, hot sauces?/

good ones... I believe pickles, olives and jelly must be refrigerated once opened. I keep soy sauce and hot sauce out.

Good question! Pickles, olives, jelly, hot sauces should be refrigerated after opening. As for soy sauce--it's okay to keep them at room temperature, but it keeps its flavor and freshness better if refrigerated.
