Getting Organized - Food Storage

So when putting together meals and especially a lot of meals together (since I cook in bulk quantities) space became an issue in the frig and freezer. Also trying to fit two meals in my lunch bag that I take to work become an issue as well. I found that the Glad and Ziploc containers work well to setup single serving portions. They are Washer, Microwave, and Freezer safe plus no BPA so they are perfect. These hold up well and the only time I have had a couple break was when I dropped them on the floor when I pulled them out of the freezer. But if they are just cracked you can use the broken ones to plant things in. The crack allows the water to drain out. One make a scoop out of them also. They are still useful if you put your mind to it.  I usually keep an eye out when they go on sale and stock up on them. They are handy through out the house to store things in. When I am not using them they stack really well into the cabinet and don't take a lot of space.

I can get a serving of meat and rice/pasta into one Ziploc twist 'n loc. With the Glad lockware I usually just do one portion as they are a little smaller than the ziploc. I can fit about 6 of the Glad lockware or Ziploc twist n' loc s into my Artecobags Insulated Lunch Tote Bag that I take to work and still have room for a few snacks.

I do use a few of the Ziploc square food containers as well to do a full complete meal that includes meat, pasta/rice and a vegetable like whole steamed green beans or asparagus. By doing this I can cook up several meals and store them in the freezer so I do not have to cook each week. I usually take two weeks to cook up food and the following week I don't have to fix anything because I still have things left over.
