During this time folks are going to the stores and buying more food all at one time so they don't have to go back to the store as often.  So here are a few hacks that can make your food last a little longer.

Put a paper towel in with your lettuce or spinach.  It absorbs the extra moisture and keeps greens from getting soggy and gross.

Re-wrap your block of cheese.  It's better if it gets a tiny bit of air.  So put it in something more breathable than plastic wrap, like wax paper.  Then put the whole thing inside a partially open plastic bag.  It'll also taste better that way.

This one I have used all the time, Freeze leftover broth in ice cube trays.  A lot of recipes only call for a little bit of chicken stock, so don't waste a whole bottle.  Freeze the rest so it's easy to use later.

Store fresh herbs the way you store fresh flowers.  Keep them upright in a glass with a little water in the bottom. They will last a lot longer this way

Normally you wait until you are going to cook to wash produce.  But you'll want to wash it immediately right now because of the virus.  So just dry it well, or the extra moisture can make it rot faster.
