You all know that I'm a big advocate for ecoegg. To be honest, it's not so much the environmental impact they have (although that's definitely a bonus) but it's just as much about the sheer money saving abilities that their products provide me with. It's no wonder that as a company they've just won the Queen's Award For Excellence 2016 and so with this in mind, and the fact that I've been using their Laundry and Dryer eggs and loving them for a few months now, when they offered me their Fresher For Longer Disks, I jumped at the chance of trying something new.
This might seem like an odd one on my blog - but truthfully, they're a company that I really respect and I'm not great at eating things before they expire and so I was excited to stretch my food out a little longer (anything that means getting more food is good right?). These are made to be put in with fruit and veg and it helps to absorb some gases that would normally cause food to rot faster - so, with that in mind - I chucked some in with our fruit, some in with our veg and then promptly forgot about them for the last few weeks and left them to do their stuff.
Honestly? I was dubious. I mean, they're little paper disks, each one supposedly lasts three months and I don't need to do anything to harness it's x-men power? I guess it just seemed somewhat unlikely - but, and they don't grant miracles, you're not going to get apples that last a year all of sudden, it genuinely does seem to work. Fruit and veg stays firmer for longer, and you'll get through that whole week between food shops before you need to get new veg because yours has turned into gross mush. All in all, they're actually pretty good as food saving ideas go - and if you're a student, these could jut save you that extra tenner a week (and that's a fair amount of drinks in any student union every month).
So, if you're interested in saving yourself some money, and who isn't, there's a way you can get three years worth of these suckers and a disk holder for just £12.96 for the next twenty four hours (06/06/16) over on QVC. Missed the deal? Well, no worries - the same kit will still only set you back £23.97 - which isn't bad given the amount they could potentially save you over the next three years. This isn't a sponsored post, I'm just all about money saving - and having lived away from home for a bit, I'm happy to share just about anything that will save you some precious pennies in the long run.
So there you can - a bit of an odd one, but I'm all about saving money and so I thought I'd share this one, odd little tip; especially given that you can get such a good deal on them.
