4 quick tips to preserve food longer

Most of us spend way too much of our income on food.  We again spend way too much on food we simply throw away because it rots before we even eat it.  The following are 4 easy ways you can help preserve some of your food just a tad longer.

CHEESE

  1. Placing a sugar cube with cheese keeps your cheese fresh longer.

BREAD

2. Misting stale bread with water, wrapping it in aluminum foil and then warming it in the oven will rejuvenate it.
