[Infographics] Storage Unlocked: How to Store Everything

Storage Unlocked: How to Store Everything

What’s the best way to keep beef fresh in the freezer? Where should you be keeping your pill bottles? How long will your beer really stay good? Should you pack up old clothes in a plastic container or a cardboard box?

As a parent, you need to be a bit of a jack of all trades, and one of the most overlooked skills that’s worth learning is how to store things (and how long you can do so safely). Proper storage not only protects your belongings, but the health of your family. Plus, becoming a storage guru is also a great way of getting organized and saving your oh-so-precious time.

Want to learn the best way to store just about everything around your house? Read on!

Medication. This one is first because it’s a matter of safety. Any parent with a lick of common sense knows that they have to keep medicines and other chemicals out of reach from tiny searching hands by locking them up or placing them somewhere high – maybe both if you’ve got a climber! And you know that you should throw bottles away when they expire. But what isn’t as well known is that medicines can go bad faster and lose their potency if you store them in a place where there’s a lot of heat and humidity… like, for example, a bathroom medicine cabinet. As an alternative, experts recommend keeping your medicine in a box or cabinet in your bedroom or kitchen, or on a high shelf in a closet.

Food storage. Next to medicines, this is probably the most important group of items you need to know how to store, and it may be even more important. Unfortunately, you could fill up a book just with food storage tips.

Here are some highlights by food type:

• Meats – Beef stays good for up to 5 days in the fridge and a year in the freezer. But if you’re freezing it outside of the original package, make sure to wrap it in airtight plastic wrap or foil and then place it in a plastic bag. Chicken also lasts a year in the freezer, but only 2 days in the fridge.

• Dairy – Your milk may have an expiration date on it, but trust it at your own risk. Experts say that it should be tossed after a week in the fridge – and don’t put it in the door! Soft cheeses last 5-10 days, yogurt 7-10 days, and hard cheeses 3-4 weeks – if you wrap them in tight plastic wrap.

• Fruits and Veggies – Depending on the item, it will go bad in the fridge anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks after you buy it, and that time is decreased for things kept at room temperature. For example, if you’re not going to use your lemons right away, toss them in the fridge or you’ll be buying new ones in 3 days. Yikes!

• Bread. Like your bread fresh? Hope you like to eat it fast, too, because it’s going to go bad in 2-3 days. Pre-sliced bread is a bit better at 7-10 days, and you can keep bread frozen for 6 months. The best way to keep it fresher longer is to put it in some kind of airtight container, but you can also wrap it in foil and a towel.

Who knew?

Facial creams. This probably isn’t an issue for most people, but if you’re the type who only uses your facial cream every once in a while (lucky!), you should know that they only stay good for 2 years after you open them. And if you’re the deal-seeking type who stocks up, don’t buy more than you can use in 3 years – even if it’s a great sale! Storage isn’t much of an issue for facial creams, but if you’re going to have them in the shower, make sure you keep them in something where the water can drain away.

Jewelry. Tired of your necklaces getting tangled together or finding scratches on beloved items? One way to go is to get a jewelry box lined in a soft fabric with individual compartments for each piece. But if that’s not your style, you can also protect them by wrapping each item in a separate piece of tissue paper.
