You know the drill: You resolve to eat healthy, you look up recipes, you head to the store and farmers market to stock up on fresh fruits and vegetables. You tell anyone who will listen that you're going to start eating more fresh produce.
Then, life happens. You work late one night or someone drags you out for happy hour and the fresh foods you were planning on turning into a salad are in your fridge, wilting. You get mad at yourself, not only for not sticking to your resolution to eat healthy, but also because you've let good, nutritious, and expensive foods go to waste.
It happens. But it doesn't have to be this way.
If you were just a little smarter about how you stored the stuff, it could all last a little bit longer. These Rubbermaid FreshWorks Produce Savers — one large and one small — are vented to regulate oxygen and carbon dioxide flow and have an elevated tray at the bottom to combat moisture and condensation. Rubbermaid touts that your produce will stay fresh up to 80 percent longer, which means you can get around to eating healthfully (and stop wasting money) — eventually.

"These really do what they say! I love berries, but I can never keep them fresh without molding really fast. I have honestly been able to keep berries for over a week with these," says one reviewer. Another reviewer calls them "magic containers!"
What do you think? Have you tried them? Are you willing to give them a shot?
