Groceries are expensive! The average family of four in America spends $235 on groceries every single week, and that cost will really add up over time. So many of us end up throwing up wilted salads, bruised fruits, and stale cereal at the end of the week. You shake your head and wonder what you can do to be less wasteful and save some money, but you don’t know how to change this endless cycle. Well, you’ve come to the right place! Storing food incorrectly is one of the number one causes of unnecessary food waste. Get comfortable and ready to take notes because we have a list of foods you never knew you were storing incorrectly. We’ll walk you through how to store them properly, so you can spend less money on your groceries every week. Let’s get started!
Regrow Your Scallions
You might think it’s impossible for you to regrow any of the food you get from the grocery store, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth! Even if you live in a tiny home or apartment with very little space, you can still regrow your scallions. All you need is a glass of water and the tips of the veggies you’d normally throw out. Put the white tips in a glass of water and watch as they regrow before your very eyes! You can repeat this process infinitely, which means permanently crossing scallions off your grocery list. Put them in some soil to regrow if you have the room. The taste will be much more potent!
