I haven’t, just because I avoid those isles. I’m always shopping with children, and rather than saying “no” all the time, we just skip it all together.
Well it got me thinking about this drawer in our kitchen that was full of plastic Ziploc storage containers. I never noticed it until this morning, but when I open that drawer.. it STUNK, like plastic.
I started taking out any plastic containers that were “pitted”. I ended up with just TWO that were decent. I ended up putting all of them in the recycling bucket and nicely lining the drawer with my new adorable jelly jars (They were on clearance at Wal-Mart).
They look so much neater than the plastic. We use these to store food in the fridge, cupboards, snacks in the car, wherever! we also use the larger jars as our “bottled water”.
In the fridge I date the tops with a dry erase marker, so we know when the food was made. Oh & these awesome, adorable little jars are MADE IN THE USA. How cool is that? Oh, it’s pretty cool!
This was a very refreshing change, one I’m happy I made! Are you making any, or have you made any changes that you’re happy about?
As a mom, God is trusting me with my familiyand it’s my honor to look after their health and nutrition.
Hooray! I got these(http://www.amazon.com/Pyrex-1072164-Storage-18-Piece-Round/dp/B000HAVOC6/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1296788958&sr=8-3)for Christmas. I know how you feel, it was wonderful to clean out that plastic drawer!
If you ever see good sandwich containers at a decent price please share!!
I love pyrex for home, I still use a few rubbermaid containes for snacks in my little ones diaper bag, but might be able to find a suitable replacement.
I once packed my little guys snack in an old glass salsa container for in the car. It worked great…. Until I opened the door and it rolled out onto the street and shattered into a million pieces! 🙁
So I would now suggest little stainless steel containers. Amazon has some that are perfect snack size for little ones.
