To avoid a melt down of my groceries, I try to remember to place a small cooler in my vehicle before I head out to the store. Before I went grocery shopping yesterday, I placed ice packs in my cooler and put it in my car. When I got home after shopping, my meat and dairy products were still cool. And that says a lot because it was 97° F! If I shop and get stuck in traffic, I don’t have to worry because my cooler is doing its job.
THE KEY: Remember to put the cooler in the car!
I love this tip! I keep a cheap styrofoam cooler in my car permanently. My daughter does too- she lives in Phoenix and it has saved our bacon and ice cream and candles and many other melt-ables.
