I buy the throw-away aluminum baking pans with lids to send leftovers home for my guests. Example: for my three children, I buy 2 pans for each family; one for the main meal leftovers and one for desserts. This eliminates searching through cabinets for margarine tubs, or plastic containers.
These aluminum baking pans can be purchased at the local Dollar stores and come in various sizes.

Ziploc bags work for more than just meat and dinner rolls. you can use them for stuffing, green bean casserole, salads, leftover black olives, & lots more foods.
And they can go in to the recycle bin. Good tip!
And you still have your leftover Tupperware margarine containers. I hate to go up to my brother's house a couple times a year to retrieve all the leftover containers that he's never brought back after having dinner at our house.
