    I usually can't be bothered. Like when they say you shouldn't store food in the tin, you should transfer it to a tuperware container.
    But it's so much easier to just shove the half full tin in the fridge.

    Oh, and i NEVER use bottles of sauces, etc "within 4 weeks" or whatever. It takes ages to use up a whole bottle! Feels like such a waste just throwing it away.

    You can store biscuits in me as I'm cool, dry, and rarely exposed to direct sunlight

    Reminds me, there really is nothing nicer in this world than a warm moist vagina.

    Well this is the "food" sub forum. What were you expecting...

    If you think a vagina is food then your mother taught you wrong.

    You're not supposed to really eat them. Has no one ever complained about that?

    Clever (I assume you're 12 so I'll be nice) but sadly that doesn't make lady parts food.

    This must be why his mother doesn't let him have meat.

    Depends on the food. I'll put half a tin of baked beans back in the fridge covered with cling film and eat it the next day.

    I'll put ketchup / mustard etc in the fridge and eat it months later even though it says use within 4 weeks

    but if i open a pack of ham i'll be dubious about it after about 3-4 days, as it says on the packet. usually goes a bit smelly by then.

    not that i ever leave any ham.

    Never understood this one. It doesn't spoil any quicker out of the fridge, and has the bonus of not being cold when put on hot food.

    Hm, I never thought about it, but I put ketchup in the fridge once the bottle has been opened.

    Never tomatoes though! :)

    Me three, along with brown sauce and the obvious salad cream, mayo, dressings etc..

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Why do some people insist on keeping their eggs in the fridge?
    They don't come from the supermarket refrigerated.

    Probably because fridges come with a handy egg tray.

    Decant most leftovers into bowls with the intention of finishing them, but most of the time they just sit there for a few days till I bin them. Ketchup has no place in a fridge imo - surely the vinegar is all the preservative it needs?

    Edit: Too. Slow

    I see. Must utilise egg holder in fridge.
    However that holder has eight spaces, eggs are supplied in sixes. That's almost worse than selling hot dogs in fours or eights and the bloody rolls in sixes.

    Just looked that up:

    Eggs have a natural protection layer that lasts for something like 2-3 weeks after they have been laid, unless they are washed. After that, they belong in the fridge. So yes, if you buy them when they're fresh and use them within a couple of weeks, you're fine.

    In some countries they need to be washed before they get sold (USA), in which case they need to be cooled in the supermarket as well as at home even when they're fresh.

    :D I do sometimes plop half a used tomato in them as well. With good intentions of course!

    I keep pretty much all fruit except bananas in the fridge. Probably not supposed to, but they keep longer and IMO taste nicer. A cold apple seems to have a better crunch to it.
