How These Food Storage Tips Can Save You Money

Avocados, man.

One blink and their Kermit-green hue has turned into a muddy brown. We can thank Ethylene for this one, a natural gas that fruits and vegetables emit which speeds up the ripening process. This leads surrounding produce to rot at a rapid pace.

According to the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), Americans waste up to 40% of their food, meaning a whopping $165 billion is thrown away each year.  This is partially caused by failing to appropriately store produce in the kitchen. Remember those bananas you bought yesterday? Well they’re probably as good as banana bread by now.

Not to be the kitchen cop, but these three storage tricks will help you put a halt to wasted fruits and veggies. Watch this video to learn how you can avoid turning your kitchen into a landfill.

It’s not unusual to find that the organic, pesticide-free produce tends to be a tad more expensive. Add that with your grass-fed beef and free-range chicken, and you might as well give up and reach for that box of chocolate. Because chocolate is a salad anyway and won’t cost you an entire paycheck.

Don’t fret. While you can’t grow organic beef in your kitchen (yet), you can grow a mini vegetable garden using scraps and save a few bucks next time you go shopping. All you need is water, soil and last night’s leftovers.
