The following are some unique ways to make your food last longer:


Are your potatoes sprouting shortly after buying them? Prevent this by storing them with apples. Also, keep them away from onions, which can actually speed up the sprouting process.

Mushrooms should be placed in a paper bag and stored in the fridge or a cool, dry place for optimal freshness.

Just like you might store freshly cut flowers, store your asparagus upright in a glass of water in the fridge after cutting the bottoms, and cover with a plastic bag.

It’s definitely a bizarre one—but a tip for making onions stay fresh for up to eight months is to store them in a pair of pantyhose. Be sure to separate each onion by tying a knot between each one.

To keep your salad greens fresh, put them in a container with a paper towel (which will help soak up any moisture) and cover with cellophane.


It may be more convenient to store milk in your refrigerator door, but this can actually help it spoil faster because of the fluctuating temperatures from the door opening and closing. Instead, store it on the middle shelf of your refrigerator.

Whenever you cut into a block of cheese, rub the exposed portion with butter to prevent it from drying out. You can also extend the life of your cheese by keeping it in the warmer parts of your refrigerator (such as the crisper), avoiding plastic wrap, and instead wrapping it in wax paper or cheese paper.
