USDA report (Released in February 2014) “In the United States, 31 percent—or 133 billion pounds—of the 430 billion pounds of the available food supply at the retail and consumer levels in 2010 went uneaten. The estimated value of this food loss was $161.6 billion using retail prices.”
How much food does your household throw away? Mostly because it was stored incorrectly (well, then there’s those weird vegetables that no one would eat. Kale, we’re looking directly at you.)

Here’s how to store, where to store, and how long your groceries will keep if you do it right.
Remember, a broccoli saved is a designer handbag earned!
