When it comes to organizing your kitchen, the kitchen tools and utensils are not the only ones that need to be organized. Food storage and organization is also really important so that the monthly groceries you have can stay fresh and good until they are eaten. So, in order to prevent the unwanted throwing away of food, you should be familiar with some tips on how to store it right. Here are some of them.

Keep dairy products at the coldest spot

We all tend to keep the jug of milk on the fridge door, in order to reach it easily. But the right place for it as well as other dairy products are at the back of the fridge because of thereof the lowest temperature over there.

Fruits and vegetables require special storage

Different types of fruits and vegetables require different storage. Some of them are meant to be stored at room temperature, so the pantry is the right place of them. And yet there are some that can last longer when stored in the fridge. For instance, bananas can be good both in the pantry or in the fridge. They can last longer if you cover the crown of a bunch of bananas in plastic wrap and as such slow the release of ethylene gas.

Canned food is the easiest type of food for storage

Yes, canned food is the type of food that can last for a quite long time. You can choose to store it in the fridge, but this is not a must-do. Canned food is often stored in the pantry or in some drawers. If you want to provide extra storage space for all those cans, you can add some wall shelf, or store them in a magazine holder and place them somewhere on the countertop. You can even try to be creative and maybe turn an old soda box into canned food box.

So, your groceries can last longer if you know how to store them right. The above tips should be of great help to you. And of course, always check the expiration date of everything you buy and display the ones with the shortest expiration period somewhere where you can see them, so you won’t leave them unused while being good to eat.
