Tip 9 of 10 - Store Foods Conveniently
10 Cooking Tips for People With Arthritis
There are two important points with regard to food storage. First, make sure you have food storage containers which are easy for you to open and easy for you to stack. Whether you choose plastic storage containers with easy-open lids or Ziploc bags, make sure they are convenient for you. There is a wide selection of food storage products available, so you should not be wrestling or hurting your hands when storing foods.

Secondly, think about what you are storing. Prepare and store foods which you commonly use and have them in ready-to-eat condition. If you like to nibble on fresh vegetables, clean and cut them up in batches so they are easily available. Make it easy on yourself.
