Sometimes, spending money on groceries can be terrible. There are some people who prefer to make lists and plan out their weekly meals, while others would rather toss everything into a cart and figure it out as they go.
Whatever method you may choose, occasionally your groceries tend to go bad before you even have a chance to eat them or use them. Fortunately, there are some great methods that will help goods last longer and reduce waste. These techniques can also be beneficial to both our wallets and our environment.
Here are some of the greatest hacks that exist to help you extend the shelf life of our groceries as much as possible.
Freeze herbs in olive oil so they last longer
You, too, can save time and effort by freezing basil, oregano, thyme, and rosemary in an ice cube tray. These fresh herbs will be on hand for dinners like lasagna or pasta without having to go out of your way to find them during the off-season.
The best part about this hack is that you can make herb cubes in batches and put them in a ziplock bag when they’re frozen. Then take them out when you need them. This is far better than eating dried herbs.
