Is there anything worse than spending your hard-earned money on food, just for it to go bad before you can eat it?
It makes us sick to our stomach to throw food away—you might as well throw cash in the trash!
Here are a few tips to make your food last longer!
First and most importantly: Organization!
If you don’t see what you have, you don’t know what you have.
The best way to organize your food is to put the tallest in the back, the shortest in the front.
If you have a small amount in a large container, transfer it to a smaller container.
Save your jars, thoroughly clean them, and use them as extra containers to keep your food organized and in your sight.
If you have a big bag of something in the freezer, break it up into smaller plastic bags.
If you have a big batch of ready-made food, portion and store in smaller portions. That way you can freeze what you don’t need right away, and only pull out what you need.
Okay, now you’re organized. What else can you do?
Dehumidify your fridge and pantry.
Wet, dirty air hastens oxidation, or the process of air sneaking into your food and ruining it.
Find ways to dehumidify and soak up dirty air, like baking soda or bamboo charcoal.
If your food spaces are clean, organized, and dry with clean air, your food will last 42% longer, and your waste will go down to almost nothing!
