Pre-cutting your vegetables and fruits

I am not sure where I saw this little gem of a tip I know it was on someone's blog and I have done it ever since. When I get home from my shopping trip I take the time to go through the fruit and vegies and pre-wash and chop any that I can. It makes for a super easy dinner time when you can just got to the fridge and grab out any that you need and use them with your dinner!!! I have found this system saves us a lot of time and money as the wastage decreases a lot. If it is cut up already you are more likely to eat it.

I use the Tupperware Fridge smarts. They are great containers and keep the greens crispier for so much longer. I get on average 4-5 weeks for my carrots for example, a lot longer than if you just put them in the fridge. You have to be disciplined enough to make time after each shop to do this which can sometimes be hard but it is worth the extra initial effort.

It depends on the fruit/ veg several weeks normally though.
