Eating leftovers from last night’s dinner is a great way to save money on lunch and cut down on wasted food.
The problem is, some of us aren’t organized enough to remember that the leftovers are in the fridge in the first place. Weeks later, we get curious about that funky smell or that anonymous paper bag taking up so much valuable real estate.
Solution? Clear pyrex containers that take the place of plastic Tupperware.
Clear glass containers are great for several reasons:
- They let you see what’s inside, so you don’t forget it exists.
- They stack quite nicely.
- They’re more durable than plastic, and they don’t leach plastic into your food when microwaved.
- They don’t start to smell funky after a while, like plastic tends to.
You can get them at kitchen supply and container stores as well as some discount stores and weird, out-of-the-way Asian markets. They cost a little more up front, but they’ll save you money down the line.
