2. Avoid individually wrapped items
Like snack packs, individual wrapped fruits and vegetables. Buy in bulk where possible and check for those double packed items that are basically a less fun pass the parcel.
3. Reusable containers
Start relying on reusable containers
Once you start buying only what you need, take it to the next level by storing food properly, which will extend its life and keep things fresh for as long as possible.
Invest in some quality airtight containers for things like baking ingredients, cereals, and other things that can stale quickly. If you buy loose food items from farmer’s markets
or bulk bins at stores like Costco, reusable containers are especially important to have in your kitchen.
