Debbie Meyer's Green Bags - Non MK -Just FYI

How about an off topic subject- just for fun?? (When I find a good thing, I like sharing it with others) Have any of you seen the commercials for the green bags that have been advertising on TV? They are supposed to extend the life and freshness of your produce. Well, I have, and because I have wondered if it was possible for them to work and have been tempted to buy them but just didn’t take the time to order them and because for me, if something looks to good to be true, I tend to be very cautious.

I love salads but hate taking the time to make them, so I love to buy the bags of premixed salads. My complaint with them is no matter what I do to store them, within 2 -3 days of purchase, I won’t eat it because it gets yucky. So since I only go grocery shopping once a week, I can eat salad at the beginning of the week but not the end of the week.

I was at Wal-Mart the other day and saw the bags at the checkout. It was $9.88 for 20 bags (10 large and 10 medium) so I bought them. I thought it was a little pricey for bags but hey I was being adventurous. I will tell you, it was well worth the $$. I finished off the salad on day 6 and it was still edible. Day 6 and my celery still snaps like day one. The fresh broccoli that I forgot about it still like the day I bought it. And I read the instructions (imagine that) to find out these bags are reusable.

So if you have been wondering if they work, I give them my thumbs up.


  1. It is good with peanut butter on it. - Sort of funny, I am not a big peanut butter fan, but I like it on celery but I don't like celery without it either.

  2. I picked them up last week and have stored some salad in them, too. Unbelievable. Snappy fresh! No mushy ends. No brown. I love a good investment. I've been recommending them to everyone, too.

  3. Good to know! I wondered if they could possibly be any better than my Zip-Loc or Glad bags! Maybe I'll invest, too.

  4. Green Bags work and save hundreds of dollars by not throwing out pricey produce. I've been using them for nearly 9 years! They are reusable time and time again. Some of my customers say they've used the same bag for nearly a year! The company says 10 times for maxium efficiency, but I know they can last longer.
