How to keep leafy vegetables from spoiling?

I eat a lot of romain lettuce and spinach, but I'm the only one in my house who does. I purchase both at Krogers. The romaine is purchased in a bundle, not a bag. The spinach is purchased in a plastic bag. Both are reasonably fresh when I get them. The romaine I rinse in cold water and then dry reasonably well. The spinach I don't rinse. I place both separately in large ziplock bags. I place a couple paper towels in each, and replace w/ fresh towels daily when I remove some of the romain and spinach. Of course, I store in the fridge. It takes me about a week to finish both, but they both seem to start going bad around the 5th day, usually at the bottom of the bags.

Any suggestions or tricks for keeping leafy products fresh a few extra days? There used to be bags you could buy that had tiny holes in them that were supposed to help, but I did not have any luck w/ those. Whats the most important thing for keeping leafy vegys fresh?

I have a plastic container with a strainer at the bottom so the produce doesn't touch the water gathering at the bottom of the container. That keeps it reasonably fresh. I still have to wipe off any moisture gathering on the lid and to drain the water gathered at the bottom. I put links below to a couple of products that are similar to what I have.

Also, for spinach, if you don't need it to be fresh, blanch and freeze it in small portions.

YOU MUST BUY ONE IF YOU EAT GREENS!!

I have what looks like the first link - holes on bottom so moisture drips down, but greens stay crisp. the top and bottom come off like tupperware. But mine also has air vent control on the side.

I LOVE IT!!

I believe I spent less than $20 on mine. Worth every penny!! I eat greens daily. Sooo worth it, especially if other family members are not on same page ;)

Go to places like Bed Bath and Beyond, Target, Walmart, etc. and you'll find them with all the kitchen gadgety or storage stuff.

I have been using a small plastic storage bin I got at christmas time (about 4" x 8"?). I wash all the lettuce and dry by lying out on towels. I put a paper towel in the bottom of the bin and then stand the lettuce up on it's ends like a big bouquet. I have found that it keeps the longest if I do not cut or tear it up ahead of time. Last week I purchased a bunch of lettuce, but I left one head unwashed in it's original bag. After 4-5 days when the other lettuce was gone, I found that the extra head of lettuce was still almost as fresh as when I bought it. I think I will start doing that from now on, wash only half the lettuce I buy each week.

This has been a big thing for me also since I refuse to run to the store every few days and I like to eat a lot of salad.
