To keep it away from ants. A tin or a plastic bag would work, though, too.

I had stored my potatoes under the cabinet but then they started to sprout. Because I didn't plan on planting potatoes in my garden, into the refrigerator they went.

In the summer, the overnight temperature in my kitchen is warmer than it is the winter so I find that certain foods need to be refrigerated earlier - point-in-case: potatoes.

I'm good with most of those except for basil and bread. If our cabinets are full, I refrigerate bread otherwise our cat will jump up on the counter, steal the whole loaf and tear it apart.

Russians drink their vodka neat, and very, very cold.
Mine lives in the freezer as well. I drink it cold, but I don't want it watered down with ice cubes.

My Sushi the Siamese is a bread-eating cat as well. I have to keep the bread in the microwave.
It's only a matter of time before he learns how to open it.
I used to keep small amounts of butter in a complicated, sliding, antique butter dish. He figured out how to open it before I did, and would eat the butter every night.

A couple of years ago, my store had a buy on sweet onions. The mesh bag had a tag attached that advised wrapping each onion in paper toweling and storing them in the crisper drawer of the fridge. I did so and the onions were good for almost four months. (I don't use them up very fast)

OMG great cat stories.

I keep all that stuff in the fridge, unless it needs to ripen. Garlic dries out on the counter. And I don't have a lot of space in the world's smallest kitchen (8x8, no lie.)

I do the same thing. No reason just doing it the way my mom did.

My late Blue Cat used to love a good loaf of bread or package of rolls. He never tore open the cheap loaf - only the good stuff!
