Believe it or not: Americans throw away $165 billion dollars in food each year. That means 40% of food is wasted every year! There are clearly many ways food is wasted, but one way is in our own homes. Too often, food gets pushed to the back of our refrigerators, freezers, or pantries and forgotten about for months or even years to come. We’re left scratching our heads and wondering if a food item is still safe to eat. Or, if it goes bad, we end up throwing food away and wasting not only that food, but money. It affects our environment and our own wallet.
To clear up the gray area and to help reduce food waste, Kitchen Cabinet Kings put together a helpful guide that breaks down the average lifespan of common household foods. It can be helpful to reference this chart next time you grocery shop and create simple labels on your food. You can avoid food waste and getting sick by eating potentially spoiled food. Check out the full infographic below that details each food item broken down by storage medium in your freezer, refrigerator, or pantry.
