Tips to help you avoid wasting money and food

Cooking pots on the stove

There are certain things you can do to ensure that you don’t waste your money or your food.

Below are some of the things you can do that will not only save you money, but also preserve the food you have for longer.

Cook in bulk

Not only does cooking in bulk save you time, but it also saves you electricity and your food from being wasted.

Freeze your food

After cooking your food in bulk, ensure that you seal it in storage bags and freeze it. Freezing food is a preservation method that makes the food last longer.

Cut and dice your own fruits and veggies

Pre-packed cut fruits and veggies cost more than buying whole products. Instead of wasting money on buying pre-packed veggies and fruits, rather do the chopping yourself and then freeze your veggies and fruits. This will ensure that they don’t get spoilt. You can even train your children to help you with this one.

Constantly check the state of your food

One rotten potato spoils the whole bag. That could be said for many other foods. So constantly make sure that you look out for foods that are almost too ripe and may get rotten soon. Start cooking with those, to ensure they don’t spoil the whole bag.
