    Default Keeping veggie & fruit fresh

    We're trying to keep shopping to just once a week for better budget control. However fresh fruits and vegetable (leaf veggie like lettuce, boy choy, cuccumber etc...) normally go bad after 3-4 days although we keep them in the fridge. Is there any tips to keep them fresh until the end of the week? ta

    A friend lent me some tupperware containers. I guess they are the same idea as a crisper in the fridge, but they are more tightly sealed. From my use of them, they definitely seem to lengthen the life.

    Yes! I was just about to suggest fridgesmarts! I have the two medium, two small and a large that I brought from a fellow hubbers tupperware party last year. They.are.great. I get so much more life out of my fruit and veg, easily a week + and the produce is still as fresh as the day I brought it.

    I second (third) the Tupperware Fridge Smarts! They extend the life of veggies massively.

    The fridge smart are definitely great if you remember to use them and use them correctly. I'm useless at it so tend to only buy stuff I know I will use relatively immediately.
