Well good afternoon everyone, Ken and I had to go to a town for an appointment and they have an Aldi’s and Walmart. Doing the HaPpY Dance, we stocked up on perishables at a great price. We are set for several weeks. I often get asked how I store fruit and veggies, in this video I share all my tricks. The greensaver filters really help extend produce, I replace the filter every 3 months. I bought mine at the Container Store and here is the link to the product. https://www.containerstore.com/s/kitchen/refrigerator-freezer/oxo-greensaver-crisper-inserts/12d?productId=11001490

    I have to ask….the drawers that you keep your fruits & veggies in, are they just drawers under your cabinet or are they in your fridge? Thanks!

    I just love your videos, Shelby! I have a couple of questions. Do you budget $240 and whatever saved is used for your once a year stock-up? Are you spending less some weeks because you are using what is in your pantry/freezers? Also, do the fruit/veggie freezers fit exactly from top to bottom like a lower cabinet would. As soon as I saw yours I was envious! Lol and today I was watching and realized we don’t use our dishwasher…maybe I could put some drawers in where our current (non-working) dishwasher is 🙂

    You shop like I do. When I have the opportunity, I do it. Where can I find the meatloaf recipe you were talking about?

    I love these videos! I preferred the look of the Walmart part because there’s less plastic packaging which is of course can be so damaging to the earth!

    Cherries are my favorite summer commodity! I don't know why I like them so much. Maybe because my grandma had a cherry tree. They are expensive to buy in the store, but I have the fondest memories of plucking them right off the tree as a little girl. I'll pay whatever in the summer to have them, happy you found them for such a great price! Love your videos.

    I need to get some of those produce savers, with only two of us eating here most of the time it's hard to keep things fresh. I love The Kneady Homesteader! That meatloaf looked so good. Good luck making your jam. I am loving the cherries this year, they are so sweet. I made your baked beans this weekend! They were a big hit and so easy!! We had them with a pasta salad , German Brats from a local meat market and German chocolate brownies for desert. Had both of my sons and grandson for dinner. All of the girls were working. I missed them but, it was nice to have my boys to myself!! LOL

    I like the way you do the vegetable drawers. It makes everything more visible than a hundred plastic bags to sort through! How do you do different lettuces? Do you take them out of the wrappings/bags or leave them in? Lately, I have been buying romaine lettuce with the bottoms cut off as they look so much better than the whole bunches. I transfer them into green bags as the plastic carton they come in is a pain to get into. How about celery? Do you cut it put in a bit water like the asparagus and green onions? Have a great week, Shelby!

    Thanks for the idea of the greensaver filters. I found a two pack for $4 at HomeGoods today along with replacement filters. I can’t wait to see if it works. Great haul!

    I love your fruit and veggie drawers. Viking is an excellent brand for sure. We’re more the Kenmore, Frigidaire kinda people hehe 😉 I use paper towels in my containers or cloth napkins. They last a bit longer this way. Loved the haul!!!

    Would you please tell me why you always use the phrase "I went ahead and XYZ." Please know I LOVE your videos, but sometimes your message gets lost with the oversue of "I went ahead and XYZ or ABC." "I went ahead and prepped the vegetables. I went ahead and stocked up our pantry. I went ahead and cut the meat." Grammatically, it acts as a confusing "filler" for your senteneces.

    I love you. You are such an inspiration… Huge squishy hugs. I like very much appreciate you.

    Did you know, I have always been drawn to the filters for the crispers. I wondered if it was worth the money. I see you are using them I like the results. You sold me on it.
    Your pineapple would be a great tshirt if you want to move into product s or a kicthen set super cute. Oo a baseball hat. I love a good capture yes ma'am. Besides pineapple s are adorable

    One of the reasons I love you so much is all the vegetables and fruits you feed tour family. So many of the large family channels use so many unhealthy processed foods! It's so worth it to buy great produce!

    Great Haul, Shelby! Did you know that you can plant the ends of your long green onions (root end) in the ground and they will produce more. Same with the root end of an onion, and romaine lettuce. Then you just cut what you need aka cut and come again vegetables. You can also plant the top of a pineapple. Hugs!!!
