Once home from the grocery store, you’ll want to refrigerate or freeze these perishables right away in the correct containers. What types of containers are the right ones?

Instead, keep refrigerated fruits and vegetables inside sealed bags, glass containers with tight-fitting lids or airtight plastic containers to ward off rot.
With trips to the supermarket costing more these days, it pays to know about proper food storage. Follow these tips and others like them to help get the most out what you buy and reduce food waste.
