Be a smart shopper
When grocery shopping, make sure to pick up dry foods and household goods first (e.g. canned foods, grains, cereals and personal items), next fruit and veggies, then finally any perishables – hot and cold items (e.g. meat, dairy, seafood). At the check-out, keep hot and cold foods in separate bags.
Hint: take cooler bags with ice bricks or an esky to store cold food while travelling home.
