Save Food Containers For Leftovers

My sister-in-law did something for Christmas that we all thought was smart. She saved the containers in which she had purchased take-out food all year. It was easy to just grab and fill them from the left-overs. We all had some good food for the lazy day afterwards when no one felt like cooking.

There was no expense of new containers. No one gave their favorite food containers away with the worry of never seeing them again. These were all the same black bottom, see through lid type, so they stacked easily in open fashion. Great idea.

Your tip is really good and it's always a great idea to recycle and reuse but a word of caution. If the recycle numbers on those plastic food containers don't say #2, #4 or #5 please don't reuse them for food again; reuse them for storing non-food items instead!

Those are the only safe number types to reuse and the others (especially styrofoam) can leach cancer causing chemicals into the food after the first original use.
