    Are You Storing Foods in the Right Places?

    Not organizing your refrigerator correctly can make foods spoil faster, lead to cross-contamination and make things hard to find.Put foods that don't need to be cooked (leftovers, processed meats, cheese and beverages) on top shelves.Store meat on the bottom shelf in a plastic bin. Put other raw ingredients on lower shelves, in different areas.Crisper drawers have adjustable humidity and temperature controls to keep produce fresh. Store leafy greens in a high-humidity drawer and put other vegetables and fruits in a low-humidity drawer.Remembers, when you open the refrigerator, items on the door are exposed to room-temperature air...so only keep condiments, sauces and butter there.
