Since I am a big fan of maximizing every dollar, I love to take advantage of buying in bulk as well as storing and using leftovers from meals. I’ve found that the easiest way for me to do this is to use plastic containers with lids to store food and other items. The big flaw with my system is that I have collected a huge number of random plastic containers and can never seem to find the right lid to go with the specific container I am using!
Luckily, Mr. Lid created a set of plastic containers in a variety of sizes that all have the lids attached. These containers fit my criteria for any plastic that comes in the house – it’s BPA free, freezer and microwave safe, and (very importantly) dishwasher safe. Plus, Mr. Lid is not only a Made in America product, it is made here in Wisconsin in the greater Milwaukee area!
Additionally, I love that each of the containers has measurements marked on the sides and a place to record the contents and date.
Plus (as if I wasn’t already sold) Mr. Lid has been actively helping the community via meals.org. Mr. Lid donated 2,000 of their containers to over 29 senior centers so folks may take their leftovers with them, rather than waste food. What a great way to help out!
