As an at home dad I cook 99% of my families meals; from breakfast to dinner and snacks in between. On the flip side I throw out a lot of food only after a few days because they have gone bad. We all have a cabinet in our house full of containers that fail after only a few days in the refrigerator.
According to a report last August by the National Resources Defense Council,
the average American tosses about 25 percent of food and beverages purchased. For a family of four, the money wasted could total from $1,365 to $2,275. USA Money
That is a lot of money wasted. Not only is that a lot of money wasted that is a lot of time going back to the store for more food. And nothing is more frustrating then having to go back to the grocery store with kids. Ready for a lifeline? Want something to save your food for longer then a couple of days? Insert the Ozeri Instavac Storage Containers.
These containers are so easy to use. Simply put your food in the containers. Snap the sides down. Press in the center of the lid and done. The science behind this is that you press the air out of the container and a green vacuum press displays on the top of the lid. There is a white turn dial that allows you to set how long to save the food. This is really a game changer in the saving food category in our house.
I absolutely love the Ozeri Instavac Storage Containers. They are so easy to use that my kids have made a game out of it. I would strongly recommend getting these containers to help you and your family save some money. Its also BPA free so there will never be any carcinogens leaching into your food from the plastic.
