A social media star has shared nine ways to keep vegetables fresh for weeks in the fridge so you can help beat the cost of living crisis.

Chantel Mila, known as Mama Mila on TikTok, shared a video demonstrating each tactic - including storing an apple with potatoes to prevent sprouting.

The Daily Mail Australia reported the 'amazing' tips would not only minimise food wastage but save households money on weekly grocery bills.

Mama Mila's tips are: 

1. Freeze extra tomato puree in ice cube trays - it will last for months 

2. Store an apple with your potatoes to prevent spouting 

3. Storing tomatoes upside down to increase shelf life 

4. Place a paper towel on greens to keep them fresher for longer 

5. Place a marshmallow in your brown sugar to avoid it going hard 

6. Store nut butter upside down to prevent separation 

7. Place celery in water to keep it crispy for longer 

8. Store lemon with avocado to prevent browning 

9. Store herbs in bouquet with water with a plastic bag over the top to prevent wilting
