Everyone should be a leftover person. According to the USDA, 30-40% of the U.S. food supply is wasted. That said, if you have trouble eating the same meal twice in a row, you can always use your leftovers to create something new. For example, you can use a leftover cheese board to make a creamy pasta with crisped prosciutto on top.
Of course, you need to keep your leftovers sealed tight to keep them fresh, though. That’s why you should consider this Rubbermaid container set.
Rubbermaid Brilliance Leak-Proof Food Storage Containers, Set of 5, $19.97 (Orig. $34.99)
First of all, it’s 43% off on Amazon right now, so the set is only $19.97. In the set, you get five BPA-free containers with five lids. Each lid comes with two secure latches to create an airtight seal to prevent spills and leaks and to keep food fresh for longer.
The clear plastic containers are stain-resistant, according to the product description, as well as microwave-, dishwasher- and freezer-friendly. Of course, glass containers have become popular in recent years, but these plastic ones are lighter and easier to carry for taking lunch or snacks with you to work or school.
Nearly 50,000 Amazon shoppers give them a five-star rating, too.
“My endless search for the perfect food storage containers is finally over,” wrote one Amazon reviewer. “These containers are high quality, airtight, dishwasher and microwave safe, and come in so many different sizes. I [could not] be happier with this purchase. I literally have no negative comments.”
“Throw away any other Tupperware you have and buy this brand,” wrote another reviewer. “When you heat up food in the microwave, it doesn’t melt. It doesn’t get spaghetti sauce stains. It seals tight. I wish I would have found these sooner.“
Get them to store your Thanksgiving leftovers, Christmas cookies and more for longer — and get them while they’re on sale.
