I wrote about keeping Costco spinach fresh , December last year (2016). I put 3 sheets of paper towel on the bottom of food containers hoping that will keep Costco spinach fresh.
Today, I found this containers, yet another Rubbermaid product, that may change my life. It’s FreshWorks Produce Saver by Rubbermaid . Each container comes with a crisp tray (sits at the bottom) and ventilation system. They will keep produce fresh up to 80% longer, it claims. These Rubbermaid containers are doing what I’ve been trying to do but better. I am excited to try them out. I have a high hope. I just found out about these, thanks to Costco. I wonder how long they’ve been available.
Note: 3 days later, on July 10th, I went back to Costco to buy one more set of containers. But, this time, there was no more $6 discount.
Buy from Costco:
Costco is currently selling set of 3 containers for $13.99 after $6.00 coupon. The set contains 1 large container and 2 small containers.
- eBay – one medium size container is about $10
- Walmart – one medium size container is about $8
- Amazon – 2 piece set containing 1 small and 1 large containers is $19.99 (you must spend $25 to qualify for free shipping)
- Bed Bath & Beyond – One large container is $14.99 – with a $5 coupon, it’s $10.00
- 3 piece set, exactly as Costco (1 large, 2 small) can be found at $30+ elsewhere.
You can go on and on… and on and on… searching for better price so you can save $1. Or you can just buy from Costco and enjoy your free time. Because, chances are, you cannot find better price than Costco.
Below is rest of my Costco shopping (July 7, 2017)
Coupon saved $20.70. Dog treats are for my friend’s birthday. I don’t have a pet of my own. But I can make any cat purr (guaranteed). Also dogs love me. Children like me, I used to teach long~~ time ago (25 years ago?). Senior citizens love me also. Basically, everyone loves me except girls…
I bought a package of hanging hooks… wait until Christmas, you may see why I bought them. Yes, I am planning for Christmas.
I bought a rotisserie chicken because they are yum.
