The fridge is one of the most important household products. Gone are the days when a fridge used to be a luxury. Today it is more of a necessity.
How? The fridge is used to store all manner of things especially perishable food items including tomato, pepper, fruits, and other vegetables.
However, what many people have not really considered is the fact that a fridge can be an emergency machine as well
Here, YEN.com.gh brings you 5 things to keep in your fridge that can serve the utmost need in times of emergency.
1.Drugs. The fridge can also be a drug store. It can store almost all kinds of medicines and other medical items. Syrups, especially those for coughs and bodily pains when stored in the fridges help a lot in cases of emergency.
Imagine you have a visitor, maybe a friend or even family member visits you with a child who starts running a temperature suddenly. You can rely on the fridge to handle this emergency, that is if they are in there. It helps you save the situation and also save yourself the stress of dashing off to a pharmacy shop.
2. Food items: A lot of people already do this. Keeping food items like tomato, pepper, green pepper, apples and many other fruits and vegetables in the fridge keeps you going also in the case of an emergency. Especially when you have to suddenly prepare food for yourself but are unable to go to the market. Or when you receive visitors at a time that seems impossible to buy items from anywhere due to time or other factors. You can fall on the items in the fridge and you are good to go .
3. Food. Already prepared dishes can also be stored in the fridge for a matter of convenience. This works a lot especially for the busy people who cannot afford to cook on daily basis. They mostly cook various kinds of dishes which are stored in the freezers for later use. However, medical advice has it that food are safer when kept in the freezers and consumed within a week.
4. Others: Other items such as left-over milk, tomato paste, eggs, and even raw beans can be kept in the fridge for use at another time. The absence of a fridge would mean disposing off the aforementioned food items, but in this time of economic hardship, the fridge comes in to help.
Money is hard to come by these days, and so it is better to find practical ways to manage what is available, while ensuring that the whole family is kept fully satisfied and healthy.
Definitely, the fridge has lots of help in this regard
