  • Basil likes full sun�� if you put that jar on the windowsill it will likely grow roots and then produce even more leaves. Herbs I always highly recommend you just buy the plants. They’re 3$ at the grocery store, you have it unlimited and they stay fresh perm.

  • While there are some very decent tips and tricks in that video, there’s also some crap. That’s why i hate those tasty/buzzfeed/goodful etc videos, not a lot of real research done. Just doing videos for the clicks i guess

  • Awesome video!!! I’m so happy with all the things you covered. Thank you for the vegetable broth tip! This was fun and just what I needed to know.

  • This was super helpful, thanks Aja. Please do a video on which produce to regrow, it’d be a great jump off point for a kitchen garden noob like me.

  • One tip I’ve always done is if you have half an onion and you just so happen to have half and avocado, put them in a container together and they’ll last much longer! Lemons work too much for some reason onions work the best to preserve avocados. And I would love a regrowing video! I’ve only ever regrown my green onions and garlic but I have yet to regrow my own ginger

  • Incredibly helpful! Thanks for sharing your research! I completely agree with “juukame” that this is the kind of info that should be taught in every school. Really appreciate your channel and all the essential nutrition info and insight you share. Keep up the excellent work!:)

  • Not sure if it is a good idea to add onion scraps, onion skins contain salmonella. Recently all onions from US are under salmonella warning.

  • If you take the stems off your tomatoes and cover the spot where the stem was with a small piece of tape, or alternatively simply place the tomato stem side down, it’ll keep your tomatoes fresh and juicy for longer. I believe I learned that from J. Kenji Lopez Alt.

  • Just grate ur ginger and freeze into cubes. I do that and it’s working fine! U need ginger jus pop in a cube or 2. Just juice ur limes n store them in a bottle in the fridge. It’s easier

  • This video was so useful unlike alot of life hack videos. this Kind of things need to be taught and spread not only so we don’t all go broke, but also to help the earth

  • I keep my onions and potatoes on the cold cement floor in a totally black room. Lasts a long time. But not everyone has a basement. It’s not a “cold room” but the floor is unfinished in this small room. You also can cut both ends off of onions and carrots and keep them in a plastic container in the fridge.

  • These are all super helpful tips! I will definitely be using all of these. Here’s a tip I learned recently: if you have one half of an avocado leftover from your recipes, you can actually store it in the freezer. Just put it in a plastic baggy and you’re good to go!

  • Umm.. washing and prepping your salad greens like kale before storing in the fridge is waaay better in my opinion. Wash them 3x, give them a good shake to shake off excess water then put in an airtight container lined with paper towels on the bottom and on top before putting on lid. Greens last longer that way for me than just storing in in the fridge up until you are going to eat it. I would be so hungry prepping my greens if I do your 1st tip.

  • Great advise. I put tomato paste in ice cube tray. Once frozen i pop them out and leave them in a bag in the freeze. Each cube is the perfect amount.

  • Another amazing course and website to check out is http://www.foodstoragedepot.com and/or http://www.7prepsteps.com. They provide teaching tips for ALL situations and at the food storage depot website provides many items including food, equipment, water filters and containers, etc.

  • I like to add a lot of cheap rice and beans to a taco meat mixture with corn and veggies so it gives it more volume and i get more meals out of the meat!

  • This is great! Another way to store ginger is in the freezer! I’ve frozen it whole or I peel and cut it into coins and then put it in a sealable container. Also garlic bulbs do great in the freezer!

  • Great idea for the tomato paste. I have bought the tube ones but they are much more expensive for the convenience. Love asparagus but, broccoli rocks. Husband is a cauliflower lover though.

  • Wash lettuce and greens with lemon juice and water before storing also.

    Especially if you alread broke up your lettuce. It will take a few days to start oxidizing but it won’t smell or be slimy.

    Also just cutting up mushrooms, cooking them in oil, garlic and pepper and freezing them is a good option for quick flavor.

  • The paper towel trick really does work. I have snap peas, carrots, broccoli and lettuce (organic) that last 2 weeks 99% of the time (my regular veggies). I keep one section of my pantry for emergency food that can be eaten right out of the can/box or heated on our camp stove or grill. I look at the expiration dates every 3 months or so and if it will expire within 6 months it goes into and in front of my regular pantry items. I keep a ledger piece of paper on top of the microwave with a list of what is in the freezer and quantities. On top of that I keep a running total of items I need or am out of in the pantry/fridge/meat. Today I went to Sprouts and bought 13 lbs. of their grass fed 93% hamburger on sale. Bagged it into 26 1/2 lb freezer baggies. When I use a meat I reduce it from my list. That way I always know what I have. I know I am retired with extra time to do this stuff but saves me time when I meal plan and shop sales. Germaphobe here too. ALWAYS wash vegetables/fruit with a little vinegar and water. Soak for 20-30 minutes and you would be amazed at how disgusting the water looks. Then I rinse with plain water in a colander and let air dry on some paper towels or pat dry. They go into individual baggies or glass containers with a small piece of paper towel (the 1/2 sheets work great). Well you asked LOL. Have a great week.

  • Great video Kim! Could you do a video on how-to freezer tips? I often get freezer burn on items or else a lot of frozen ice crystals in the container. Thanks!!! ( I watched today’s advertisement and it really wasn’t that long)

  • These really are the things I wish they taught in school! Learning all of this post-college really makes me look back at all the ways I’ve contributed to major food waste, but at least it’s never to late to start doing better. ☺

  • Great tips thank you so much!! I’m new to your channel hi�� I was wondering what brand of jars with the white lids you use? Thank you in advance!

  • I’m an 80+ year old lady who has really enjoyed your video. So many of your suggestions are things I’ve never heard of before. Thank you for this informative show! ❤️

  • I just got my first ever imperfect fruit and veggie order delivered today and your video has helped me immensely in learning how to store most of my produce. Thank you so very much for a well done and informative presentation!

  • You are absolutely amazing. What stores do you usually do your grocery shopping at? Do you ever stock up on water? Can you possibly do some in store videos? It would be awesome if you could show how you do your full shopping

  • Love you Merle, very informative video! To be honest though, some parts of this sound very preachy, thus making it hard to digest. Just my two cent, sending love always <3

  • Every single thing you said/showed was crucial for me. I literally had to go move potatoes away from onion, throw my herbs in watering jars, put the lemons and limes into the fridge, unpackage my garlic and change the humidity settings. I loved the whole thing

  • Drinking game:
    1 shot for every time she says, “ideal.”
    2 shots for every time she says, “fresher longer.”
    Shotgun a beer every time she says, “absorbs the excess moisture.” ������

  • JUST got a buncha stuff from Aldi this aft, my fridge is full. But I’m afraid it will spoil before I can get to it!:-( No 1 I do keep taters and onions together. DARNIT.

  • One other thing you can also do for broccoli is to put it in a vase of water just like you do flowers. It’ll keep them moist so they won’t dry out


  • Thank you for this!! Hey did you know onions produce some gas that make potatoes grow eyes faster, so its best to store them separately.

  • I’ve tried so many tips to keep fresh veggies fresh, and I’ve come up the only way that accually works: buy small amounts of veggies, keep them in see-through containers, and well organised.
    Keep a good functioning to-buy-list, that includes listing items in categories, and in the order you would encounter them in the store. I also include colours to mark the urgency of buying a certain food. The aluminumfoile, I tried it and it accually speeded up the rotting process of the vegetables. Not a good tip there, Clean my space!

  • My mom does that with our onions and old tights! And everytime we want some onions we just snip off an onion from the onion chain ��


  • In the UK, tomato paste comes in a tube. I love mushrooms. There are so many lovely veggies so I don’t get why asparagus is considered a delicacy.

  • Pre-sliced mushrooms? That sounds like such a bad idea! ��

    I also freeze my tomato paste, but I use ice cube containers because I don’t like using plastic bags. It’s also great for leftover pesto, coconut milk, minced herbs etc. I make ice cubes of everything and then just store them in glass jars in the freezer.:’D

  • Wrapping vegetables in aluminum leaches it into the food. Consider cutting off the base wrapping the celery stalks in a moist paper toilet and storing in fridge or a container with water. Then take the base you cut off and soak it in a container of water with stalks facing up. Within a few days it will start to bloom and regrow where you will never have to repurchase it again!

  • The can thing freaked me out bc my dog eats wet food in cans and I just always pht the can back in the fridge with a special can sealer thing (got it at the pet store). No one has ever told me not to keep things in the cans, not my parents or my siblings or teachers or the vet or any of the other adults who are supposed to raise me. Only youtube.

  • I had a farmer tell me to wrap celery in aluminum foil. I tried it and I could not believe how long that celery lasted! My friend and I had a running joke about it.

  • For herbs, I put them in water in a cup in the fridge too but I add a plastic bag over it with a rubber band around it and it lasts way longer

  • Going to try these! However the avocado pit actually does not have any magical powers, just just that less of the fruit is being exposed or oxidize and go brown!

  • When bread goes dry: wrap in damp paper twel to soften or: toast in toaster or in low temp oven. Then Cool n store in bread bag. Yeah!!!

  • Hmmm, I keep my potatoes and my onions loose in the crisper drawers of my fridge, and they’ve kept much longer than they otherwise would on the counter. Annnnd my cilantro in the jar of water also has a plastic cover which I rubber band around the jar, and I put that in the fridge. I also keep my bread in the fridge and rotate it every now and then since one side will dry out while it’s being stored, rotating it keeps an even firmness all around.

  • I cut up a bunch of lettuce and put it into Ziploc bag or container and I use old cloths or rags that are clean and surprisingly it keeps for about two weeks in my fridge �� then when I want to have a salad or whatever I can easily grab a handful of lettuce and it’s fresh and clean

  • I am loving the paper towel trick and prepping everything right after shopping! It’s so much easier because my daughter can get her own snack because it’s all ready to go! This summer, she enjoyed helping me get everything prepped and put away after shopping. I will miss her help now that she’s back in school. �� I’ve slowly been focusing in on what we actually eat so I find myself left with almost nothing by the time we go shopping (we still do weekly). It’s awesome! My main thing is to keep our meals simple and have a small rotation because I easily get overwhelmed with food prep/cooking and if I get overwhelmed I tend to want to eat out. So far so good! Love you, girl! ������

  • I put my celery in water, along with my baby carrots, and asparagus, and scallions…good luck with the rest, including the bread, depends on how warm your house ir��

  • The tomato paste! THANK YOU! I’ve always felt the same. I make croutons and eat them as snacks when I have excess bread. Because they’re dried out, they have a much longer shelf life, and they’re easy to make.

  • I love mushrooms. Have been storing them in paper bags for years. I don’t mind asparagus but you’re right, brocoli is better. Great tips. I’ve been freezing my leftover tomato paste for years. I freeze it in a small plastic ice cube tray. Each cube contains 2 tablespoons so this way I know what to add for a recipe.

  • Is the botulism one for real? I thought botulism comes from the can not being sealed properly, not from storing it for a couple days in a fridge.

  • I love mushrooms! They are a great cancer fighting food! Asparagus is okay; I think I have had it 4 or 5 times in 60 years, lol. Love your channel!

  • Great video love mushrooms and asparagus. And when stores have large pack of vegetable on sale, I split it with my daughter, and or sister.

  • my favorite trick is peeling carrots and putting them in a jar with water, storing the jar in the fridge. Not only do you have carrots ready to go as a snack, they last at least a month without going rubbery

  • Aja Dang makes me proud to be an Asian female American. She definitely will go down in history as the most proud, most self respecting and most beautiful Asian women in history. She is the opposite of Esther Ku, Amy Tan, Celeste Ng, Amy Chua and Constance Wu.

  • What really caught my eye was your refrigerator on the outside. I’ve looked at that one to buy because I thought it was cool but the salespeople were discouraging us because they’ve had bad reviews on breaking/computer problems? How do you guys like yours? Any problems? Thank you! And yes, great video too ��

  • Always keep my bread in the m/w. I now buy my tomato paste in a tube (cooking just for one) love asparagus braised in butter and served on toast for a light meal. Thanks for all the tips.

  • My dad used to cut avocado perpendicular to how its showed in the video (and how we usually cutted avocados) so the surface that gets brown is smaller, and then add the limon juice. I don’t know if it makes sense but I still do it like that!

  • Fun fact, You can make your potatoes last longer by storing them away from onions. They actually let off a gas so keep them as far away as possible ��

  • Bought a ton of veggies and fruits and damn near panicked when I couldn’t find this vid again….lets just say the produce spent the night on the counter…

  • This is a little satire, but my 16 year old son was standing behind me doing the dishes when I was watching this video and he said “Stop buying fresh food, ramen will last through the apocalypse.” He’s going places, lmbo!!!

  • Bread doesn’t go “stale” in a fridge it goes dry. This makes it fantastic for real toast [not that warmed bread Americans call toast, but toast that’s deep gold and crisp], but best of all, when starch is cold, about 1/3rd of it gelatinises. This means the molecular structure changes into [a] making it taste better but best of all [b] a fibre. Yes, you can’t digest gelatinised starch, so your body just kicks it out. Thus if you use brown bread, keep it in the fridge, and really toast it, not much digestible starch is left, which is great for those on a diet, and those living keto.

  • I don’t understand the nut butter one. the air is already in there, you just move it to the bottom of the jar, which I imagine is going to make it go bad quicker if anything

  • Thank you very much for so many useful tips for storing groceries! It really helped me.:) But I have one more question: how do I store leeks? I am not able to eat it before it is spoilt..

  • I learned a tip from Lydia Senn for my fresh mixed greens for smoothies and that’s to freeze them either in a container or bag, they don’t clump together.They are cold and ready for smoothies or sauces or whatever, and last for a looooong time in the freezer. I’ve frozen bread for years, and have never had a problem with freshness. I make smoothie packets including bananas, avocados mixed berries, pineapple, citrus, whatever usually from the 99 cents store. A while back when I started making healthy smoothies, I had so much in my fridge for the drink, but it was getting out of hand. Now I spend maybe 30 minutes making up freezer smoothie packs, and now nothing goes to waste:) Great advice Kim Have a lovely day!

  • This was awesome! I’d love to see a video about what foods you can regrow / other ways to save money while trying to eat more produce.

  • About the peanut butter, actually it’s not funny, it makes sense. My mind got blown when I saw and realised how it works!

    Thank you Merle!

  • Amazing video Aja. Thank you for taking the effort. I will definitely use all of them. Also, I’d love the video on growing various plants.

  • Thank you, this was so needed. 2 tips I learned. Mushrooms in a paper bag, close it. Celery, in towel then foil. Works well but I like you ideas too.

  • how can i stop really smelly cheese from stinking my fridge out, i tried click containers, still seems to leek out iv even doubled wrapped and put in sealed container still iy smells, not so bad but enough, i love my smelly cheese but my son hates it and it makes him gag, please help, sheila from london xxxxx

  • What is your experience with food waste in the kitchen? What is your opinion? What is your story? How do you avoid it?

    We want to hear from you https://s.surveyplanet.com/F2lTxvtVqr?fbclid=IwAR35VM_VCiGRJASkm6DjlHnWCz3DlVsRRt9UDjCRcEdYYn4_YHf7fiFVdY

  • Nice content, i think it’ll be best if you did it slower when explaining. Bcs for me it was fast enough that made me hv to pause if i want to read what bolutism is..

  • 100% organic unsweetened cranberry juice, or you can take cranberry supplements and your pee wont stink…I mean, no more than what pee stinks, lol!

  • run over this because im into onion leaves and leeks planning to buy more and wanted store them correctly ended up wanting to buy more towels and jars

  • Wow this was soo informative. However I wanted to debate one thing which was how to store onions and add storing peppers that always seem to be left out of lists. I definitely leave my onions out of the fridge when untouched. After I slice them I put them in a tightly sealed plastic container and put them in the fridge. For peppers I quickly chopp or slice them and store them in the freezer so not only am I preserving them. It also cuts down on prepping if I need some to add to a recipe.

    Thanks for sharing this video. X

  • Avocados in the fridge right before the go ripe is a game changer! Will have your avocados lasting for WEEKS! Really enjoyed these tips and can’t wait to save money!:)

  • If I want my berries to last a very long time, I stick them in the freezer as soon as I get them home. If I want fresh berries to stay as fresh as long as possible, I make sure they go into a section of my refrigerator that is a reliable 32ºF 33ºF. (0ºC) They will last literally for a week if kept right at freezing, but this requires an unusually steady fridge.

  • Thank you for the tips! Definitely, everyone should learn these tips. Btw I loved the video and if anyone doesn’t like it…They seriously have problems. You are so kind and informative in this video. You go, girl! Keep sharing no matter what.


  • I find that ginger does better out of the fridge, which helps them dry out.
    And tip: once onions are cut, I put them in large container that allows air circulation, and store them in the fridge, 32oz yogurt container, or plastic salsa container seem to help preserve them longer.

  • Did you find this video helpful? Let me know what other types of hacks/tips/how-to videos I should do in the future. I want to make content that’s the most helpful and relevant for you! Sending you lots of love ��

  • Did anyone else just learn brand new things about storing their groceries, or is that just me?! I would love to see a video about how you regrow your produce!

  • The best tip for me has been to wash fruits and vegetables BEFORE putting them in the fridge. 10 seconds of running cold water removes more than 90% of bacteria, which removes the chance of mold big time. Organic lemons were good for 2-3 weeks before, now they last 2-3 months!

  • I bought a Food Saver. Makes a big difference with extending food life since it vacuum packs your items. Has other uses as well.

  • I learned so much! Cilantro especially is kind of beautiful standing in a mason jar hahaha thank you! Collecting all these clips musta been a lot of work!

  • Awesome information Aja! I would love a video about regrowing fruits and vegetables from scraps! Thank you so much for taking the time to share!

  • tip for the avocado: put them in the fridge even before they start to ripen, it really slows down the ripening process and I find that I’ve been able to keep them for 10-14 days!

  • I can’t be the only one watching this during the pandemic! I HATE wasting food especially now when it’s so hard to get plus who wants to go?! This video is so helpful… thank you!

  • Thank you for sharing and yes would love to see a video on what could be regrown. Also where is the bottle from that you used for the milk?

  • I even freeze bits of bananas, apples or veggies my kids didn’t finish. �� I cut off where they bit into it. Then the bananas I use for baking or smoothies, apples for applesauce or smoothies, veggies go into making broth or stock.

  • I was actually looking for this kind of tips for a very long time so this video is exactly what I needed. Thank you so much! You’re adorable:)

  • Glad I just found this video and your channel! I’m constantly wasting lettuce and cucumbers! I hate waste!! Thanks for such an informative video. I subscribed.

  • Hi Kim great tips! I freeze just about everything. Live by myself and if I don’t do that it will spoil. Yes the paper towel tip works and for other veggies and mushrooms. I put the cilantro in a tall glass of water and it stays fresh for a long time. Occasionally I will rinse and add fresh water. I also keep the eggs in center of fridge. I’m a germophobe as well. Lol! The rotating system is a very good habit to maintain in regular basis. Don’t remember if I told you before but you look beautiful in red! (Wear it often) Hugs!:)!

  • Thank you for sharing your tips & tricks! This video was so informative and I am one to not store things properly all the time. It will def help w storing my fruits and veggies! Thank you & your fridge is amazing!!! It just looks so easy to store and see everything. Life goals—more kitchen towels and new fridge lol great job ��

  • OOHH…..Put mushrooms in a paper bag w/ bread………The bread will soak up moisture & keep the mushrooms from getting moist & moldy…..They’ll keep for definitely a week…..maybe 2

  • I just think its a waste of foil. We need to use less plastic and foil. I watched a video on utube.
    They recommend that you can store celery longer in a jar of water.
    Boil a kettle of water and let it cool. Pour into a jar. Add a little salt. Wash and cut celery to your liking and put in the jar. It works brilliantly.

    Lets try and save the planet by using less plastic and foil.

  • Kim also wanted to tell you about using aldi baby wash to make foaming hand soap it smells great-and sometimes use orange essential oil in it -either way smells great=I also use the baby wash on my face as a daily cleanser it removes make up and no tears-the bottle is huge-take care

  • Kim I wanted to tell you about 2 great cheap lip products Perfectly Pure vitamin e stick and wet n wild lipstickcolorBreeze C531C so amazing together-you have to try these

  • Wonderful Helpful Video, I would like to share that I cut up old T-shirts and use them instead of towels, serves the same purpose, saves money, and decreases carbon footprint.

  • I love this video! I do have a tip for you! I use canvas bags in my freezer. Each bag holds a certain group of items. We have a chicken bag, cheese bag, beef bag, breakfast food bag and a grill bag. That has kept me from digging in the freezer and getting frustrated. I also just recently made a use now bag for stuff needs used soon.

  • Condensation every other day wipe lids or place new paper towels in fruits or veggies as well as cook foods.. also u can place a dash of baking soda or corn starch under the towel container to keep deli items from smelling.. If u have a fruit or vegetable that is more ripped than the other separate as it will ripen the other faster.. drink a spoon �� full of apple cider vinegar 1 or 2 a day good 4 ur health and also good 2 wash ur veg and fruits with 2.. Also try 2 freeze dry food.. or home canning

  • Great tips, I pride myself on being efficient but baby girl dropped some science!!���� will be rotating my goods from now and using paper towels to keep my greens fresh!!!������������

  • I can’t buy lots of stuff fresh unless I buy a whole package, so I’ve been freezing it all. Stuff like Serrano peppers, which make everybody I know angry at my cooking, only come in giant packages of a dozen or more where I live.

    Holy crap, freezing random spices, herbs, and even tomato paste in an ice cube tray? This is a game-changer for me. Thank you.

  • Great tips! I’ve actually read countless places not to wash your produce until the moment you eat it. I used to wash mine right after getting it but from what I’ve read once you wash it it starts going bad and will go bad faster ����‍♀️

  • Sensational ideas! as a newcomer in the kitchen your ideas just made my day! Love mushrooms but we need them fast before they turn gooey! Love cauliflower( used to hate them kkk) asparagus you’re completely right! overmarked by cook media! Now I need to find the other 10 tips! Have great weekend! New fan!

  • Yes yes yes more please. Love the tips. Cleaned Onion skins hard stems from herbs n celery leaves n wilty bits etc chop up n freeze n use to season water for broth then just strain out n throw in compost.

  • I definitely need these tips. I’m so good at letting food go bad. I almost always have avocado to throw away, bread, potatoes, dairy. I end up trying to buy more cupboard food in cans or freezer food so they won’t go bad.

  • I cant wait until i have my own place so i can do this.. my family freaks when i do things differently.. example they use the criper drawers for their nasty deli meats and cheese… the fridge if full of their food and it makes me sad. cant wait to move out

  • Love your content.. I’m always looking for some content like yours on how to prolong or store food in a right way to keep it fresh and crisp..

  • I need to start doing that paper towel trick…I have a hard time using spinach up before it goes bad! I do a lot of these things. I try my hardest to not waste any food!! ��

  • Asparagus not my favorite. I like only out of my garden small and raw. Funny I know. Tomato paste idea I love or measuring out 1 tbs and freezing between parchment and stacking a ziplock bag from Flo Lum channel.

  • I literally only buy what I need to make my planned meals. I will put extra veggies into dishes so I do not have half bags of things. I will count fruit so I have just enough. I make all the meals I plan to make and freeze them in 3 cup pyrex containers every two weeks. So I prep lunch and supper for two weeks, portion to three cup rectangular pyrex, and I stick to it. Breakfast is always steel cut oats and made fresh. I also only have a regular size fridge’s freezer and all 28 containers fit in that sucker. It is just me to prep for mostly, boyfriend is over the weekend which is when I do the cooking so he gets it fresh.

  • Very useful. I was so surprised by vegetables scarab into broth wow, how cool. However by storing almost everything in the fridge I will end up needing a walk-in fridge hhh

  • Brilliant video. At the moment it’s the summer holidays in the UK and my shopping is not lasting very long at all. I am grateful that we don’t have waste. Kids are constantly saying what can we eat? They go back to school beginning of September. But loving having them home at the same time.
