In these economically challenging times, there's just no need to waste food. See how to safely store and save your leftovers to maintain both quality and optimal flavor.

Canned food, once opened, should be transferred to a glass or plastic container. You won't get sick from food stored in an open can, but the food won't taste or look as good.

For more information on storing leftovers, see Love Your Leftovers.
