What are some ways to make your food last longer?

Apples will last up to 77 days longer if placed in the fridge. Place mushrooms in paper bags before putting them in the fridge to prevent sliminess. Peaches, plums, and cherries do better outside of the fridge.

“Many people aren’t aware that simply storing your food differently can vastly extend its shelf life, saving you money in the process,” Reena Sewraz said.

Eggs last longer in the freezer, but crack and beat the eggs first before storing. Freezing eggs in their shells will make them explode. (
