A better way to store herbs

When I get home from the store, I unwrap any fresh herbs, put the stems in a tall mug of water, cover  the top loosely with a plastic bag, and put the whole “bouquet” in the fridge. I find the herbs stay fresh much longer when stored this way—plus they’re in plain sight, so I’m much more likely to use them.
