The way you store your food could save you thousands of dollars a year. Here, we take a look at some popular perishables.

To make onions last up to eight weeks, simply put them in pantyhose. Yes, pantyhose. Just tie a knot between each bulb and hang.

Greens are notorious for their short shelf life. Keep your salads for up to a week by storing them in a bowl, draping a paper towel over the top to absorb moisture, and then sealing it with plastic wrap.

And what about fruit? Well, the green leaves on strawberries actually cause them to go bad faster. Try snipping them off, slicing them and storing them in a Ziploc bag in your fridge. Instead of spoiling in just two days, they'll last a week or longer.

So, the next time you're putting away your groceries, use these simple storage tricks and techniques to save your food...and your money.
