Extending Your Fruits and Veggies Shelf Life July 9, 2009

In these times, when we are all looking to cut costs and save a little extra money it becomes harder to spend your extra money on something, well, extra.  Sometimes you have to spend money to save money.

There is no need to tell you that fresh fruits and veggies are some of the fastest items in our refrigerators to spoil.  Well, in my kitchen, they now have a longer shelf life.  I am a skeptic about most everything.  But, I trusted my friend and took a leap of faith on Tupperware’s Fridge Smart collection.  And now I loved them!  Yes, they are on the pricey side for my tastes but they do more than make up for it.  I only buy Tupperware when it is on sale. These items are currently on sale until Friday.  These containers typically (I believe so) go on sale each year during the months of April or May. So I am surprised to see them on sale right now.

How they work, I don’t know.  But they truly do. Maybe it’s a little magic.  I have had spinach in the large container for over four weeks.  Strawberries in the medium one for two weeks.  I put anything and everything in them.  They even come with a handy guide on the side of each container stating how many vents to open or to close.

I would highly recommend you take the leap of faith like I did and try these containers out.
