Fresh herbs can make a dish taste great, but can be pricey, especially as they go off quickly.
But one woman says a fridge storage product has saved her lots of money as it kept her cut parsley and coriander looking green for six weeks.
It means she doesn’t have to keep throwing out bunches after only getting to use a little in her meals.
The Australian woman bought the fridge storage box, with drainers and air vents, from Kmart for £5.
Sadly, Kmart is not available in the UK but you can buy an almost identical version from M&S here.
The M&S box comes in three sizes – small for £7.50, medium for £9 and large for £15, so it is a little pricier than the Kmart one but the idea is the same.
If you want to buy all three, there is a set for £29.50.
You can also pick up a three pack of the large containers (in green rather than grey) from Amazon for £28.99.
The air vents and drainer, with a plug on the base, to help to prevent a build up of water and keep air flowing.
Posting on Facebook about the Kmart box, the woman said: ‘I am so in shock with these containers. I bought this coriander on January 30 and I have kept it in one of Kmart’s fridge containers and it has yet to go limp or rot.
‘I kept parsley for over six weeks in one of these containers, they are just amazing and such food savers. They have saved me money as well as I am not throwing out bad fruit and veg as much.’
The boxes can also be used for salad and other fruit and veg to help prolong its life.
The M&S boxes all have four or five star reviews and the Amazon version has 4.3 stars across 498 reviews.
One said: ‘I have these boxes in all 3 sizes now. I find them excellent for storage of salad leaves, radishes, berries and chopped vegetables. Definitely extends the life of these items.’
Another added: ‘I have had so many salad bags that go mushy but with this wonderful box with the drain at the bottom is keeps everything crisp and fresh.’
