Useful Tip #1 - Celery
Celery is one of those foods that you just don't use everyday. Or at least I don't. And I hate having to throw out food that's gone bad. Celery is not one of those items like bananas where you can just tear off and buy how many you think you'll use before they go bad. So somewhere along the line I read a useful tip on how to make your celery last longer. And it's not using that oversized tupperware container that takes up half of your dang fridge. It's very simple and it's something that almost everyone already has in their kitchen. Aluminum Foil!!! Yep that's right just plain old foil. When you get your celery home just take it out of the plastic bag, tear off a piece of foil that is long enough that you can fold the ends back over the stalk. Basically wrap the celery in foil and you must make sure it's completely covered. My celery has easily lasted me a month or more if sealed completely in the foil. And when you need some just carefully unwrap it, take off the amount you need and wrap it tightly back up. If you try this let me know if it works for you or if you have any other useful ways of storing celery so it lasts longer post a comment below.
