I have a plastic container with a strainer at the bottom so the produce doesn't touch the water gathering at the bottom of the container. That keeps it reasonably fresh. I still have to wipe off any moisture gathering on the lid and to drain the water gathered at the bottom. I put links below to a couple of products that are similar to what I have.

Also, for spinach, if you don't need it to be fresh, blanch and freeze it in small portions.

I have what looks like the first link - holes on bottom so moisture drips down, but greens stay crisp. the top and bottom come off like tupperware. But mine also has air vent control on the side.


I believe I spent less than $20 on mine. Worth every penny!! I eat greens daily. Sooo worth it, especially if other family members are not on same page ;)

Go to places like Bed Bath and Beyond, Target, Walmart, etc. and you'll find them with all the kitchen gadgety or storage stuff.

I have been using a small plastic storage bin I got at christmas time (about 4" x 8"?). I wash all the lettuce and dry by lying out on towels. I put a paper towel in the bottom of the bin and then stand the lettuce up on it's ends like a big bouquet. I have found that it keeps the longest if I do not cut or tear it up ahead of time. Last week I purchased a bunch of lettuce, but I left one head unwashed in it's original bag. After 4-5 days when the other lettuce was gone, I found that the extra head of lettuce was still almost as fresh as when I bought it. I think I will start doing that from now on, wash only half the lettuce I buy each week.

This has been a big thing for me also since I refuse to run to the store every few days and I like to eat a lot of salad.
