GREEN BAGS TO PRESERVE FRESHNESS : DO THEY REALLY WORK?

I have a great system for lettuce (we prefer Romaine). Wash (drop of liquid detergent in big bowl of water) rinse well and lay out leaf by leaf on clean kitchen/hand towels. Then roll the towel from one end to the other and place in plastic bag. The towel will get wet from the water on the lettuce and the moist towel will keep the lettuce crisp. Put in crisper but don't close up plastic bag. It seems as if it would take up lots of space since I've often done six "rolls" all put in one plastic bag but you can put other items on top and still pull out a "roll" or two easily. We eat lettuce twice a day so with this system I can buy the big size at Sams and not lhave any go to waste for just the two of us.

Now, somebody tell me how to keep herbs on hand. Will the green bags work well if the herbs are dry?
