We hope you had a great Thanksgiving holiday last week, or as we like to call it, Round 1 of the Holiday Food Showdown. And from the looks of satisfaction around the Ernest Packaging Solutions offices, it looks like we are all off to a great start.
And yet, all everyone can talk about around our Innovation Lab is how we stored our leftovers. What can we say, we can’t stop thinking about this stuff. Packaging is our business and business is good, so we’re sharing our tips on how to package your food for maximum freshness.
1. Get More Packaging Options
You need plastic freezer bags large and small, plastic containers in various sizes and a variety of wraps and foils to make sure your food stays fresh. The right solution for the right challenge, that’s our motto – well that, and “Never get between our President Tim Wilson and the mashed potatoes.
2. Plan Ahead
Make room in your refrigerator for your leftovers before you find yourself with a pile of food that needs to be stored and nowhere to put it. So move out of the way, two-year-old mustard, it’s turkey time!
3. Package Smarter
Labels are your friends – don’t just label what the contents are, but when they were stored. Typically, you’ll want to freeze anything that you won’t use within three or four days.
