As someone living on her own for the first time in her life (and grocery shopping for herself!), this chart is incredibly helpful.

This is very helpful. I could have saved some money if I had known all this. When I get fresh fruit and vegetables I usually just keep them in the bag or container that they come in and just put them into the refrigerator and they usually go bad before we eat it all. I will definitely use this.

This is a great infographic! I have already started to trim the stems of my parsley and cilantro and putting them in water. This makes sense as you also trim and place flowers in water to keep them fresh. I also put parsley and cilantro leaves in ice cube trays, cover with water, freeze, and then put the cubes in a plastic freezer bag and put them back in the freezer.

I definitely need this! I've had trouble storing banana halves. I'll have to try out this suggestion.

This is super helpful! I've always had trouble with using the whole avocado before it goes bad.
