Caroline Kaufman shares food storage tips:

“If you find yourself tossing soggy celery and mealy tomatoes in the trash all too often, you’re not alone. No one gives you a guidebook on how to store food properly to prolong shelf life and flavor. So, it’s no surprise that the average American throws out more than 20 pounds of food per person every month, according to the National Resources Defense Council – that’s equivalent to $165 billion dollars a year ending up in a landfill.”
