How To Get Ripe Avocados To LAST:

The trick to storing ripe avocados so they last is a no-brainer, it’s easy and effective and has saved me SO much money. First  buy hard to the touch, bright green avocados and allow them to ripen on the counter. Once they are black, soft to the touch (NOT squishy) pop them into the fridge. Because here is where they will last for quite a few days! You guys this has changed my life and I owe this trick to my sisters. No more wasted avocados!
