11 Ways to Reduce Food Waste in the Kitchen


One of the best ways to make sure your food stays fresher longer is to keep your fridge at a cool 40°F and your freezer at 0°F.

There’s a science behind refrigerator organization, and it’s a great idea to keep things organized into zones based on the temperature they need to stay fresh longer. Keep meats in the coldest part of your fridge (usually the bottom shelf) and take advantage of those crisper drawers, because they hold onto some moisture that’s good for produce. As the saying goes, out of sight, out of mind—so keeping your food organized once you store it can also prevent you from forgetting food until it spoils.
