How to get it on SALE--EVERY TIME
- Check grocery ads and store websites for sales and coupons.
- When you see an item advertised on sale, add it to your shopping list and stock up, making sure to note the brand, package size and cost.
An organized and clean refrigerator means less searching for food,so meal prep and writing a grocery list and is faster and less food (and money!) is wasted. And, your risk of foodborne illness is lower because foods will stay colder, raw meats will not drip on to other foods, and there is less risk of spoilage.
Follow the same steps for the freezer. Consider making a list of what is in the freezer to use in menu planning.
Store food at cool temperatures--from 34 - 40 degrees Fahrenheit is best.
Foods stored at temperatures above 40 degrees Fahrenheit spoil rapidly.
