Storing Your Groceries and Chicken Pillow Recipe

Storing your food properly will help keep them fresh longer, saving you money!  So what is the proper way to store food?  I’m so glad you asked.chicken pillows from organized mom

  • Milk, butter and eggs should be stored in the BACK of the fridge.  They should also be stored away from any strong smelling food.  These items take on those odors and who wants garlicy milk?  The one exception is your current stick of butter.  Store that in the tray on the fridge door.  This is because it is warmer on the door and the butter will be softer.
  • Keep all deli meats and cheeses properly wrapped.  Most deli meats come in re-sealable bags now-a-days, so just remember to seal it back up.  What I usually do with cheese though is put the block into a ziplock bag to keep it fresh.
  • Store raw meat at the back of the fridge.  Like with the milk and eggs, it’s coldest back there, and it will keep them fresh longer.  Make sure to keep it well wrapped and I usually put a plate under it so that if any juices try to escape they will not contaminate the other foods.
  • Ice Cream (this is the no brainer) should go in the freezer!  You can also store nuts and old bananas in the freezer to make banana bread later!
  • Condiments can be stored on the fridge door.  Most condiments last about 6 months, with the exception of open salsa, that is good for one week.  So you better bust out the chips and finish it off!  Maybe invite some friends over for a game night!
  • Store Fruit & Veggies in the crisper drawers.  I usually keep them separated, all fruits on this side of the fence, veggies on the other.
  • Opened rice & whole grains go in the freezer.  This will keep the infestations, moisture, and odors OUT, and keep the freshness IN!
  • Potatoes, garlic, onions & tomatoes should be stored at room temperature.  They should also be stored in a dark location (the pantry does the trick for me).  Make sure to keep the potatoes and onions separate.

This guide hopefully will help you keep your food fresher longer.
