A customer has revealed how she saves money on groceries every week by using a budget product from Kmart Australia.
Posting on Facebook, the woman said she stores her fruit and vegetables in $7 fridge food saver containers, which have adjustable air vents to maintain airflow and keep the food fresh for longer.
‘I thought I’d share my findings for keeping things neat and fresh!’ the woman said as she shared an image of her organised fridge.
The 1.7 litre containers are currently unavailable to purchase online but can be bought in store if stock hasn’t sold out prior.

The customer also said she lays paper towels on top of the food to absorb any moisture.
She has reduced her supermarket shopping from weekly to fortnightly by using the containers-and-paper-towel tactic.
Another customer backed the woman’s technique and said the containers are ideal for berries and fruit.
‘I found these awesome food saving storage containers! How awesome are they!’ the second woman said.

The original Facebook post swiftly received attention from other shoppers who were impressed with the affordable product.
‘I had no idea about these, I’m so sick if throwing out veggies. Guess what I’m doing this weekend,’ one person said.
‘This is such a great idea!’ another person said, a third added: ‘I think I need these.’
Other larger containers are also available at varying prices from Kmart.
