20 Brilliant Tips to Never Have Spoiled Food Again (and how to cut your grocery bill in half)

  1. Honey

If you store honey in a tightly sealed glass jar in a cool place, your honey will have a long shelf- life.


  1. Eggs

Froze eggs by cracking them into a container with ice cubes, adding little salt or sugar, and use as needed.

  1. Tomato sauce

Place tomato sauce in a freezer bag and allow it to freeze for an hour. Then, with the back of a knife separate the mass into individual portions.

  1. Bananas

Wrap the stem of the banana in cling wrap to reduce the appearance of brown spots.

  1. Herbs

Freeze your herbs in a little olive oil and they will last for ages!

  1. Lettuce, celery, and broccoli

Wrap these vegetables in aluminium foil and store them in fridge to last longer and remain crunchy.

7. Onions, Apples, and Potatoes

Remember to always store these foods separately, because their shelf- life is lower if stored together.

  1. Onions

If you want your onion to last up to 8 months, using a pair of nylon stockings tie a knot between every onion. In this way they’re not squashed against each other.

  1. Berries

Put fresh berries into a bowl with water and vinegar (ratio 10:1). After 5 minutes, drain them in a sieve and let them dry. In this way, you’ll destroy the small micro-organisms and prolong their shelf- life.

  1. Vegetables

For a longer shelf-life, froze vegetables after being lightly blanched.

  1. Lettuce

If wrapped in a paper towel, lettuce lasts longer since the extra moisture is soaked in the paper towel.

  1. Apples

Store apples in the fridge, and they’ll last up to 6 months.

  1. Carrots

If stored in dark in sand, carrots will last forever.

  1. Mince

Freeze and portion the left over mincemeat in the same way as tomato sauce.

  1. Cheese in buckets

If stored up-side-down, cheese in buckets lasts twice longer!

  1. Instead of Tupperware 

Store food in glass jars instead of plastic containers, and your food will lasts much longer.

  1. Cheese

Your cheese will lasts longer, won’t sweat, and won’t taste like plastic, if stored in special, grease-proof paper.

  1. Pineapple

Pineapple will last longer, if you remove the crown and stand it on its head.

  1. Spring onions

Grow spring onions by placing them in water, and whenever you need one, it’ll be fresh and crisp.

  1. Cake

If protected by pieces of white bread, cake will last much longer, since the bread will eliminate the moisture from the surrounding air, thus  preventing  it from drying out on the place where it’s been cut.
