THINGS YOU DON'T ACTUALLY HAVE TO KEEP IN THE REFRIGERATOR

Once you open a food container, whether its sliced turkey or a bottle of ketchup, most people put the rest in the fridge to keep it fresh. But what you may not know is a lot of the food we eat doesn't need to be stored in the refrigerator and will be fine sitting at room temperature. Get the full list here: http://cnet.co/1LOjO0Q
  1. Hot sauce
    Hot sauce stays fresh up to 3 years without refrigeration, even after opening it.
  2. Potatoes
    These should be stored in paper bags in cool, dry pantries. Putting them in the fridge can make them taste funny and rot faster.
  3. Onions
    Onions do best in dry, ventilated areas. Keep them away from potatoes, though. These tubers can make onions rot faster.
  4. Basil
    This favorite spice absorbs fridge smells, so it is best to keep your fresh basil in a cup or vase of water on the counter much like fresh cut flowers. You can also do this with any other fresh herbs.
  5. Bread
    Bread is best when kept at room temperature in a sealed plastic bag. Storing bread in the fridge speeds up the dehydration process and makes it go stale faster.
  6. Ketchup and mustard
