The biggest problem I face keeping so much produce in the house would have to be making sure it all gets eaten before spoiling. This can be a real challenge, especially with things like greens, berries, and bananas. I hate wasting food, so I am always looking for ways to extend its life, which also saves my family money.
Thankfully, this is where Debbie Meyer can help! You may have seen Debbie Meyer® GreenBags® and Debbie Meyer GreenBoxes™ on TV. These kitchen solutions are specifically designed to keep your perishable foods fresher, longer. We were sent a nice assortment of Debbie Meyer's products to check out for ourselves, and I'd love to take a little time to tell you about them.

Our Thoughts :
We keep larger fruits and veggies in the Debbie Meyer® GreenBags®. Peaches, plums, apples, bananas, and even potatoes seem to have a longer life when they're stored in these bags. We've noticed a lot less waste, and our produce seems to get a lot less "mushy" spots.
The thing I like most about Debbie Meyer® GreenBags® is that they are reusable. These BPA free bags can be used 8-10 times each, and come in a package of 20. They are thin, but not flimsy. After they're used, you can simply wash them out, let them dry, and then add more produce to them. Easy, peasy!
We did get to try both the Debbie Meyer Oven Bags™ and the Debbie Meyer Grilling Bags™. These were used during the events that followed my Papa's funeral. There was a LOT of family in town, which meant some serious cooking going on.
We used the Debbie Meyer Oven Bags™ to make some fantastically juicy chicken, and the grilling bags were used to make both BBQ chicken and some grilled veggies. Unfortunately, I was too busy crying to get any photos of the finished products there, but they both worked well and definitely produced some incredibly juicy, flavorful foods with a lot less mess.
Overall, we're definitely very impressed with our Debbie Meyer experience. These products are absolutely genius, and help solve common problems we all face, like tackling food waste, saving money, and keeping our foods fresher, longer. I would definitely recommend checking them out!
