Sure, they’re great for leftovers, but do you really need an entire
kitchen cabinet full of plastic receptacles? Not to mention all those mismatched lids! Pair up tops with bottoms, then recycle the strays. Although it’s wise to keep a few plastic containers around so you can store that last piece of cake or send some leftover casserole home with your guests, consider purchasing a set of glass containers instead. They'll repel stains and odors and last for years to come.
