A Handy Guide to Storing Groceries



We talk a lot about the benefits of serviced apartments, and having your own fully equipped kitchen or kitchenette has got to be at the very top of the list. It is the comfort and freedom of being able to whip up a home cooked meal, have a midnight snack, prepare baby meals, pop in a 2 minute microwave meal when you have to dash or just store some milk or juice in the fridge (not mini bar). 

Yes, having a kitchen all to yourself when you are on holiday or a business trip is certainly something some travellers cannot do without. So we thought it may be handy to share with you these handy tips on how to store your groceries we stumbled upon on Buzzfeed here.

It is really informative and covers everything from fruit, vegetable, meat, herbs and bread. We hope you find it useful.
