When I am getting ready to do a food order, either by going to the supermarket or by using a home delivery service, I look through my fridge and the vegetable bins. There are always some things that need to be thrown away, and some things that can be saved. This not only gives you an idea of what you need and getting your fridge ready for fresh food coming.
I take the celery, cut it into large chunks and and separate the leaves for use in soups. These each get put into a zipper bag. Loose baby carrots, I put them in a plastic bag. Sometimes if I have an open package of carrots, I will cut them in chunks, put them in a bag. These are all put in the same place together to be used first. I sort the left over onions and remove that crispy outer layer and throw that away. If just a few, I put them in a mesh bag (from onions). If my broccoli looks like it's on it's way out, but still too fresh to throw, I cut the tops and a few pieces of stalk, and rinse them and put them in a baggie, and use them within 2 days. Now, I am ready to shop for fresh produce.
