    You are very welcome!I know how grateful I feel when someone gives me a good tip, especially with the prices of food these days. I store my bean sprouts (like in Chinese food) in a paper bag and they'll last for about 3 days. If you're up for a few more tips, I'd be glad to give you some more.Welcome to the Zaar! It's great site. A friend of mine has just started her own site, if you're interested check out She's a great person! She has tons of recipes here, Kittencal is her username. Take care, Huggs Fluffster!

    Fluffster thanks for the link to Kittencal's page. I've been a fan of hers for a long time. J

    I put paper towels on everything now. My salad bags get 2 first time I open and replace everytime I pull some out. I do the same for onions and other veggies. BUT I haven't had much luck with prolonging the life of my cucumbers....maybe added a couple of days to them but not the extent that others have stated. Wonder what I am doing wrong?

    This isn't quite right.. You can cut lettuce in advance without it turning brown. Just don't cut it with anything metal. Use a plastic knife and your lettuce will stay fresh for hours outside the fridge and days in the fridge.

    About strawberries, I have found that if you wash them well and remove the hulls, they last a lot longer. You can just store them in a zip-lock bag in the fridge.

    Plastic Wrap Storage

    Wrap the cucumber in plastic wrap and then put it into the fridge. Keeping the cucumber wrapped minimizes the amount of moisture on the cucumber, which slows the process of decay. After wrapping, putting the cucumber into the fridge will keep it cold enough to stay fresh for one week to 10 days.

    Paper Towel Wrap

    A paper towel is another option for wrapping up the cucumber. Raw cucumbers surrounded by a paper towel are kept dry due to the absorption of water and moisture by the towel. Putting the cucumber into the vegetable crisper of the fridge while surrounded by the paper towel will help keep the cucumber fresh as the moisture level is lowered. It also allows the cucumber to last longer than a week.
