Making Produce Last Longer - Crisper Humidity Controls

I have a two door crisper in my refrigerator that has knobs to control humidity.

So, I set out to find what should go where so my produce will last longer.

High Humidity:
beans
leafy veggies
asparagus
celery
cucumber
broccoli
green onions
berries
pears
mushrooms (should be stored in a brown paper sack)

Low Humidity:
melons
tomatoes
citrus
garlic
onions
gourds

Then to remind me, I wrote them on sticky labels and attached them to the drawers, so I and the rest of the household will put the stuff in the appropriate drawers.

This is one of those things that makes me slap my forehead and say "why didn't I think of that!?!?!"

Thanks for sharing!
