HOW TO... Preserve your lettuce a little longer

The problem with buying for just two people is that it can be difficult to get through all your perishable food items before they, well... perish!  Therefore, any tip that can extend produce's life just a little longer is worth trying in my book.  And that's how this unconventional trick came about.

How to Make Your Lettuce Last Longer

Try it out!
