oldfarthenry: Protip: bottles & jars should be stored with the tops pointing up to heaven.
sigdiamond2000: [i.kinja-img.com image 636x358]THINK HOW MUCH TIME YOU'LL SAVEReally scraping the bottom of the barrel for these f*cking "Life Hacks" these days.I saw another refrigerator-related one the other day where someone came up with a "genius" way to store extra eggs by inverting one full egg carton and placing the extra loose eggs between the slots. It's not saving you any space, and you still won't be able to put anything on top of it, BUT YOU'VE GOTTEN RID OF A CARTON! DO YOU BELIEVE IT!
sigdiamond2000: Really scraping the bottom of the barrel for these f*cking "Life Hacks" these days.
gfid: I don't even understand that. When I buy eggs, they come in a carton. The carton goes in the 'fridge. It's amazing!Then if you save about 1000 cartons you can attach them to your wall as soundproofing a tiny amount of mid-high frequency dispersion!
TheShavingofOccam123: Squeeze mustard? Yes.Squeeze mayo? No.Squeeze Hershey's? Yes.Squeeze margarine? No.
katerbug72: That egg trick would be good for us. We have two laying chickens who give us more eggs than we can use. We have two and a half dozen in the fridge. I'm going to start throwing them at cars soon.
BATMANATEE: TheShavingofOccam123: Squeeze mustard? Yes.Squeeze mayo? No.Squeeze Hershey's? Yes.Squeeze margarine? No.Jebus, that's actually a thing that exists.
Uzzah: Or just learn to close the tops on them like a normal human being would.
ReapTheChaos: Blood from a piece of meat that leaked through the plastic wrap, yes.
Foxxinnia: People who utilize these lifehacks are pretty much the same as people who wrap their furniture in plastic. They're red flags for visitors who comes in and think, "What the hell is wrong with this person?" There is some logic to them, but the benefits of them are so minor and inconsequential that even thinking about them is absurd.
ReapTheChaos: "legendary food hacker Alton Brown"WTF is a food hacker?"No more messy spills!"Um, I don't have messy spills from my condiments in my fridge. Leaky milk carton, yes. Blood from a piece of meat that leaked through the plastic wrap, yes. A cup of something that got knocked over, sure, but never once has my mustard leaked upward, through the closes spout, and gotten onto my fridge shelf. Never once.
wildcardjack: Why are you keeping mustard in the fridge?
naughtyrev: For all the people who are saying don't open more than one, do you only keep one type of mustard? I have 5 in my fridge at home right now, though half are in jars not squeeze bottles.
TheOmni: I like to use a variety of different condiments. I have no fewer than 15 different types of mustards, sauces, or related spreads.
gfid: wildcardjack: Why are you keeping mustard in the fridge?Because it says "refrigerate after opening".....I just did a quick search and from French's FAQ:Q: Do French's® Mustards need to be refrigerated?A: Dijon & horseradish mustard will lose their distinct flavors if not refrigerated, so we encourage refrigerating both. For all other mustards, refrigeration will help maintain flavor; however, it is not necessary to refrigerate if you prefer to consume your mustard at room temperature. There are no ingredients in mustard that spoil. "Refrigerate After Opening" is not required for food safety--we only recommended you do so to maintain optimal product flavor.I don't use French's, but it was the first thing that came up.So you're saying I can keep it in the pantry? Oh joy. I've got more room in the 'fridge than I do my pantry. I'll keep it in the 'fridge.naughtyrev: For all the people who are saying don't open more than one, do you only keep one type of mustard?

No mayo, no ketchup, no - I don't even know what else there is. I have some butter, but I almost never use it. I'm sure it's way past the expiration date.Why do you people like to complicate your lives so much?
