I wish I loved to cook. I mean really cook—not just spaghetti, tacos, grilled chicken, or the occasional kabob. So I’m always looking for easy tips to save time in the kitchen. Follow these tips to work smarter—not harder—before you cook.

1) Plan your meals: Before you shop for groceries, plan your meals for the week, and create a detailed shopping list. Without a plan, cooking off-the-cuff dinners with random ingredients takes more creativity and wastes precious time.

2) List it: Maintain an ongoing grocery list to keep track of items you need to buy. It’s easy to update the list right on your fridge with the new Samsung 4-Door Refrigerator with Apps (RF4289) featuring the Grocery Manager app. With this innovative feature, you’ll never forget to buy milk again!

3) Shop smart: Start with store sales and coupons to maximize savings at the cash register. Double up on discounted ingredients and integrate those items into a two-week meal plan.

4) Think big: Go for a fridge with maximum-capacity storage, like the Samsung King of Capacity Refrigerator (RF323) (shown) designed to store 32 bags of groceries. Yes, 32 bags! If you have fast-growing teenagers like I do, this fridge will let you stock up and save many trips to the market.
