A great list, thanks! I know if you spread lime juice onto an avocado that's been sliced it will stop it from going "brown". I can't remember the scientific process behind it but it certainly works! I'll have a read of the others later, but for now it's all about groceries. The sad thing about veg (and I really do love vegetables) is how quickly they go off.

Another tip; remember, don't keep tomatoes or bananas in the fridge. They need to be kept at room temperature.

Thanks for sharing these great links! I remember when I was younger in Girl Scouts they taught us how to cut fruits and make them last for our lunches, ect. It's been awhile since I actually cared about putting lemon juice on my cut apples, but recently I have been letting a lot of food go to waste and tips like this are great.
