I will collect the most repined images from my board and share those tips in a post every
1- Freeze green onions in a plastic bottle: Make sure the green onions are completely dry before storing or they'll get freezer burn.

2- Cheese Tricks: Add a dab of butter to the cut side of cheese to keep it from drying out.Wrap in cheese paper or wax paper (NOT plastic wrap) and then place in a plastic baggie. Keep in the warmest part of the fridge (vegetable or cheese drawer).

3-Salad: Using a paper towel will keep your salad lettuce fresh all week long. The paper towel will absorb the moisture. Get more info here.Also, you might want to invest in a salad spinner. It’ll get rid of moisture, which is the culprit of wilting leaves.

4- Storing: Reuse plastic bottles to close up your plastic bags.

 5- Keep ginger in the freezer.It grates much more easily, and the peel grates up so fine that you don’t actually need to peel it. Plus it lasts way longer.

6- Keep mushrooms in a paper bag, not a plastic bag. A plastic bag will trap moisture and cause them to mildew. Put them in a paper bag in the fridge or in a cool, dry place.
