Don’t buy too much

If you like to stock up on tons of food to reduce trips to the store, there may be two reasons you wind up throwing a lot of groceries away. First off, you probably miscalculate how quickly you’ll get to all of that food. This is especially true if you’re just a family of two (or single), so you can’t eat it before it spoils. Secondly, crowding a refrigerator makes it difficult for air to circulate, which can leave some areas warm, causing the food that sits there to spoil. If your fridge is packed tight like a warehouse in Storage Wars, then it’s overcrowded and the cold air can’t reach every item.
