How to store groceries...Food Hacks! |

Happy Thursday, Freebs! If the carrier pigeon never delivered the message, I'm posting new videos every Thursday over on the ol' YouTube. This week's is one I filmed forever ago (…caugh…APRIL…) but just had to post because it answers so many of the grocery/food questions I've been getting lately! I walk through a grocery shopping trip, talking about what I bought, what I paid for it, why I bought it, how I plan to use it, how I plan to store the extras, and also throw in some killer food hacks like how to pick the perfect watermelon and pineapple! *breathing heavily, arms in air*

Trust me, it's good.
