Minimize Food Waste
Frugal and health-conscious consumers know the disappointment of reaching into the fridge to pull out fresh produce, only to find that it's already gone bad. The discovery can be particularly disappointing these days as many of us are spending more time at home and watching our budgets due to inflation. Forty percent of the food produced in the United States is wasted every year, costing the average American family about $1,600 in wasted produce alone. With a few small adjustments in food storage, though, you can increase the shelf life of fruits and vegetables. These tips can save you money and keep fresh produce consistently at hand, helping your family eat a healthy diet.
