to read... This woman is amazing! She has inspired me to be as organized and frugal as possible when it comes to grocery shopping. She feeds 6 people for $200 a month, and posts her shopping trips and meal plans.
MOLD-FREE BERRIES!! When you get your berries home, prepare a mixture of one part vinegar (white or apple cider probably work best) and ten parts water. Dump the berries into the mixture and swirl around. Drain, rinse if you want (though the mixture is so diluted I find you can't taste the vinegar,) and pop in the fridge. The vinegar kills any mold spores and other bacteria that might be on the surface of the fruit.

Make and Store a Salad that Will Stay Fresh and Crisp All Week Long. This trick of putting a paper towel in with your salad lettuce will keep it fresh all week long. The paper towel will absorb the moisture, which is the culprit for wilting lettuce.
