Metal lined drawers aren't necessarily good for storing fruits or vegetables. Those things need ventilation and for the most part need not to be touching each other if they are going to be stored for a very long time.
The reason for metal lined storage bins is Mice, and other rodents. Most homes long ago had mice among other things and they liked flour and other grain products. Sugar bins often had glass fronts, but sugar is not especially attractive for pests other than bugs.
When I was a girl I was taught not to store either apples or onions with other produce unless you want something to ripen quickly. Apples will speed the ripening process. I think storing onions with apples causes the onions to spoil. I know they shouldn't be stored together. Another no-no is storing potatoes and onions in the same bag, even if it is a burlap bag.
Enough with the household hints for today. I am anxiously awaiting my next TOPS meeting. I really want to weigh in because I have been very careful about the amount of calories and carbs for the past two weeks. I should have a good weigh-in. I am really beginning to notice that my clothing is getting too big. Isn't it great when your clothes just hang on you? I love it!!!
I do have new smaller clothing, but I wear the old stuff around the house just to make me feel good. Since I am single I don't have to look good for a spouse, or for that matter for guests most of the time. Occasionally I will put on my good clothing when I am anticipating that someone might just visit.
It is now one PM and I have not yet gone downstairs. I think it is time for me to go get something to eat. Gloria and I have been busy "organizing" my bedroom area all morning and I have just been too busy to stop to eat. Actually, I didn't go down to eat because I was waiting until I wasn't moving around so much to take my glucose reading. I finally gave up and it was only 76. That isn't bad considering that I have really been busy.
I'll see you all later, after I have something to eat, take a shower and go grocery shopping. Any bets that I'll make it back before dinnertime?
