Ways You’re Using Your Refrigerator Wrong
Wasting fridge space on these foods
Certain foods do not belong in the refrigerator at all as they lose their flavor, or make the other foods inside rot quickly. Tomatoes belong on the counter because once refrigerated, they lose all flavor. Uncut onions and potatoes also belong on the counter, in a cool dry place. Bananas and apples and avocados can all live on the counter for weeks. Just move these to the fridge if they’re becoming too ripe, to freeze the ripening process.
