Skip packaged produce! Do you purchase produce like three peppers in a cellophane bag or pre-rinsed salad mixes in a plastic tub? It may seem convenient that some produce is pre-washed, but pound for pound, it costs way more. And given the recent news that pre-washed mixes aren't necessarily clean, you may find yourself washing it again anyway. Investing in a simple salad spinner can help you save money in the long run, plus you'll feel better knowing it's truly clean, because you did it yourself.
