Prolong the Life of Your Fruits & Veggies

No need to purchase those green plastic vegetable storage bags to extend the life of your produce. All you need to do is an old pillowcase. There are several ways to make the pillowcase into produce storage bags. You could simply cut the pillowcase in half horizontally so that the bottom of the bag is now one storage bag, then sew along one edge of the top of the pillowcase to create a second bag. Or you could cut the pillowcase into quarters and sew each quarter into a produce bag. No need to bother with a drawstring, just use a twist tie or clothespin to close the bag.

These produce bags work just as well as the green storage bags sold on television and in the produce section of most grocery stores.
