Food storage tips ... how to store foods to make them stay fresh longer?

ipsedixit | Sep 7, 200702:11 PM     9

I have to travel quite a bit for work, and sometimes have to do so on the proverbial drop of a dime.

Besides wrecking havoc with life outside of work, it tends to create problems with the food at home. Sometimes I'll go grocery shopping, stock up, and then the next day learn that I'll be out of town for the next 5 days.

Sigh. There goes those bananas and tomatoes ...

So, can anyone share any tips on how to store foods to make them stay fresh longer? Either in the fridge or packaging-wise?

Thanks.
