TONS of awesome household tips-You can divide and store ground meat in a zip loc bag. Just break off how much you need and keep the rest in the freezer for later. So much easier than dividing and individually wrapping each pound or half pound
My Fridge Food: Just the Tips :) Bacteria is what causes cottage cheese and sour cream to go bad. If you store them UPSIDE DOWN it creates a vacuum in the container which stifles the growth of bacteria and they last much longer. science lesson over :)
Root Crop Storage Bin- root veggies like carrots and beets will stay fresh all winter, just fill with layers of damp sand or sawdust, alternating with layers of carrots or beets, and put in a cool, dark place. Squash can go right in the bin without sand.
Berries When you buy fresh berries, place them straight into a bowl with water and vinegar (ratio and after 5 minutes drain them in a sieve and let dry. This kills off the small micro-organisms (of the biological kind) and makes the berries last longer.
