If you're running out of food storage containers, you're not alone. We're all changing our grocery shopping and food prep habits to deal with coronavirus. Even if you're not stockpiling food (which experts agree we shouldn't be), most of us are trying to limit our grocery store trips, and perhaps buying more than we normally would to get us through a longer stretch.
More time at home also means more time to meal prep. Or, perhaps you’ve stocked up on fresh produce which you have no hope of finishing before it goes bad, or you’ve had to opt for bigger bags of dry ingredients than your pantry was prepared to take. Either way, a few simple food storage solutions can help prevent waste (and unnecessary trips to the store).
Rubbermaid has some rare discounts on Amazon, and we’re a bit excited to tell you about them. There are offers on containers of all shapes and sizes to fit happily into your new chest freezer or cupboard, and we're here to find you help the best food storage for your needs. Meal-prep options first: let’s dive right into the good stuff.
