My husband like his ketchup in the cupboard and I like it in the fridge. Who’s right? Most of the time it’s me, but he wins this time. (only ’cause I let him)
Turns out ketchup is perfectly fine in the cupboard along with every other condiment in the history of time.
Put coffee in the fridge to keep it fresh they’ll tell you. Well that’s a lie. Coffee will absorb whatever is around it, including those smelly veg.
Tomatoes lose their flavour when stored in the fridge, as it stalls the ripening process which makes them so juicy.
Honey never goes bad. It will stay good until the end of time, but putting it in the fridge can cause it to crystallise.
Heat makes avocados ripe. So if you’re wondering why it takes your two weeks to get soft, you’re likely putting them in the fridge. The same goes for a banana.

Rather than putting your herbs in the fridge to absorb all the smells in there, wrap them in a paper towel and leave them on a counter. Better yet, create a small herb garden in your home and allow them to remain in their natural state.

Just like butter, eggs are not stored in the refrigerator at grocery stores and are best at room temperature.
