Food storage containers have massively improved since the days of Tupperware when you’d have to hunt down those pesky lids and they often felt too flimsy to take out with you. Now food storage containers are strong, durable, stackable, and leakproof. Glass and plastic are the two most common food storage options so whether you’re meal prepping for the week or saving leftovers, a good set of food storage containers is what you need.
