Saving with your refrigerator

Did you know that your refrigerator can save you money? It can, by keeping foods at safe temperatures so they last longer! Keep your refrigerator at or below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, and your freezer at 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Get an inexpensive refrigerator thermometer and check it every so often – it’s worth it! Then use your refrigerator to keep foods cold. Refrigerate or freeze foods as soon as possible when you get home from the store. And refrigerate leftovers in small, flat containers within 2 hours of cooking – even if they are still hot. For more information about storing foods safely, go to the website, www.foodsafety.gov. Watch the temperatures — a good refrigerator can be a great money-saver!
