AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Fridge vs. freezer, top shelf vs. bottom shelf. If you don't put food away properly, you could end up throwing money down the drain.

In order to keep food fresh the longest, it's crucial to pay attention to where exactly you place certain items in the refrigerator.

Jackie Ogden, a Consumer and Family Science Specialist with the University of Georgia says the best temperature to keep your refrigerator at is 40 degrees, and between 0 and 10 degrees for your freezer.

Tune in to part two of "Don't Throw it Away" tonight on WFXG Fox 54 News at Ten to find out the best ways to keep your groceries fresh.
