Here is something that I wanted to get for a long time. Hinged foam take-out containers.
They are easy to open, portable, don’t spoil the taste of the food like aluminum containers, don’t take up much room in the fridge.
This way I can cook enough food for a few days, put it in these containers and pop them into the fridge.
They are also good for storing fish filets :)
I am a looser. I spent half a day today cleaning out “science experiments” from my fridge, washing the shelves and organizing its contents. In other words – “portrait of the hacker at home” (click the link, don’t be lazy) or Cowboy Bebop Session 11 (my favorite episode).
My fridge is pretty cool. It even looks like a mainframe or a supercomputer.
I am going to add blinkenlights some day.
Anyway, here is a tip for you. Supermarkets keep vegetables fresh longer by using this special lining material (pvc-coated filter). It allows better circulation of air or something. Supposedly it can prolong the life of fruit and vegetables by 50%. I bought mine from Amana for $8, but it can be had cheaper. The veggies do live longer it seems.
