Spring is finally here, fresh local produce is starting to roll in, and I’m so excited to cook and eat it all. But guess what I’m not excited about. Seeing herbs, greens and veggies wilt and die a slow, painful death in my refrigerator.
Just this week I had to part ways with a bunch of ramps I misplaced and forgot about. Ramps! Like I can just waste money like that.
So we asked Jeanette Pavini, Coupons.com savings expert, for some advice on avoiding food waste. She suggests labeling your pantry foods with the expiration date using a black permanent marker as soon as you bring it home from the grocery store. Also, instead of storing leftovers in the refrigerator, freeze them immediately.
