It will usually save you money to buy onions in big bags rather then one at a time. That is, if you follow these ways to make groceries last longer! Believe it or not, onions stored in pantyhose will last as long as 8 months! All you need to do is put your onions in pantyhose and tie knots between each onion. Plus you can hang them in your pantry closet for some freaky wall art! If you don't want to use pantyhose, use paper bags instead. They need to be stored in a dry, breathable container, so never store them in plastic bags as they lead to mold and sprouting. Remember that this is for storing uncut onions. Cut onions should be wrapped tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerated.
