Remember that episode of Friends when Joey’s fridge broke so he had to eat all the food to keep it from spoiling?

Well, as much as it sounds fun for all Joey fans out there, you wouldn’t want something like this happening to you.

In this column we will give you some smart hacks on how to keep your fresh food from spoiling fast.

Keep Your Dried Fruit In A Jar

Even though dried fruit isn’t exactly a type of food that can go bad that quickly, you can prolong their shelf life even more and keep them fresh longer by simply storing them into an airtight jar or tub.

This will keep them tasty, moist and fluffy for months.

Leafy Greens In Cold Water

Lettuce, spinach and other leafy greens can lose their firmness and their taste pretty soon, but this can be prevented by keeping them rehydrated. Separate the leaves and put them into a bowl of cold water for about 20 minutes before your meal.

Keep Your Onions In The Dark

Onions, tomatoes, garlic, potatoes and other similar veggies shouldn’t be stored in the fridge or in a place where the sun can reach them. Instead, store in a cool dark place.
