6 common mistakes when ordering chilled groceries
If you usually leave food in the fridge until it goes bad, you might be making one of these mistakes.
No division of the fields
Refilling everything you buy at the supermarket on a whim is the way people do it, but it will save us a lot of time searching. Instead, associate food groups with specific regions. For example, milk and dairy products (butter, cheese, yoghurt…) should be stacked next to each other, or one or two compartments should contain only vegetables.
Put the freshest food on it
If you just got home from shopping, don’t be in a hurry to put new stuff in the closet and put old stuff in more. Think of your fridge like a grocery store and put the foods with the earliest use-by dates first. This significantly reduces waste.
heaps of food
If your family’s refrigerator is a little small, you may find it difficult to put food in the refrigerator. In order to overcome the lack of space, it is necessary to consider which foods can be used early and do not need to be stored in the pantry, or buy several small shelves that can be placed in the pantry to optimize space. It’s also important not to buy too many things at once.
Improper waste storage.
If you order food and don’t finish it, leave the leftovers in a Styrofoam container and store them in the pantry. Replace them with reusable glass or plastic containers to avoid bad odors and better preserve food. Remember to keep the box in the closet where it is clearly visible.
Store milk in the refrigerator door.
The door is the hottest part of the fridge, so save it for more manageable and less perishable foods like jams, jellies or sauces. Leaving the milk in this position spoils it easily, especially if you buy a lot and store it for a long time.
Do not write on the box
If you like to prepare food ahead of time to save cooking time, keep them in separate boxes and clearly label them when you buy them or when you need to use them. This is a great help, especially if you store food without clean containers.
