Quick Tip: Buy Long-Lasting Produce By the Bag

Here’s an easy way to grab some big savings at the grocery store: The next time you’re in the produce aisle, consider purchasing some items by the bag, rather than buying them loose. The key is to focus on foods with a relatively long shelf life.

You can routinely save anywhere from 30 to 50 percent by buying the following long-lasting produce items by the bag:

Onions: store them for 2-3 months in your pantry.
Apples: they’ll keep for 3-4 weeks in the refrigerator.
Potatoes: will last for 1-2 weeks at room temperature; 2-3 months in a cooler area.
