Use Plastic Cups for Food Storage

I use the see-through (recycle code 5) cups with their lids (recycle code 4) to store food in the refrigerator and the cupboard. I put Scotch tape over the straw opening in the lid. The tape adheres after being run through the dishwasher. Labeling isn't necessary as you can see what's inside. They fit nicely on my refrigerator door. I have used them for peeled hard boiled eggs, cut strawberries, broth, and nuts that come in plastic bags.
