Did you ever notice how plastic containers are like socks... you can never seem to find the mate? With so many sizes, shapes and brands of storage containers on the market, Miss Ginger constantly found herself with mismatched tops and bottoms. Quelle domage!
Now, she buys "to go" containers at her local restaurant supply store- the same kind in which your egg drop soup is delivered from your local Takee Outee!
They are available in tubes of 25 for about the same price that you'd pay for a 4-pack of brand name containers at your local grocery, and they come in a multitude of sizes that all take the same lid, sold separately! They nest in a drawer or cabinet and take up very little room! The containers are freezer and microwave safe (don't microwave the lids!), and you can run them through the dishwasher and reuse them. But, they are so cheap that if you put something yucky like spaghetti sauce in them (does that ever REALLY come out of plastic?) you can toss it without breaking the bank!!
