How to Store Your Food Longer (And Save Money Doing It)

Posted on 20. Sep, 2007 by in Saving & Investing

I find there’s a fine line between saving money and spending too much time doing it. For example, I was never a big fan of making my own baby food (for my kids, that is). I would much rather buy a jar of sweet potatoes than cook them, process them, store them, and clean up the whole mess.

But if you’re looking for a way to save some cash, check out this list of ways to store your food so it lasts longer. I was fascinated to read that on average, American families trash 14% of the food they buy, often because it spoils. But then I thought about my own fridge and realized there are probably many Tupperware containers of spoiled food.

    I would also suggest, if you are into food storage, and you move to a new climate, that you check with those that have lived in the area for a while as to how they store their food. When we moved to Texas from Calif., we stored our food as we always had, and then ended up throwing away tons of spoiled food, and therefore a lot of money… I learned a very valuable lesson the very, very hard way.
