I want to rid my home of the numerous pieces of tupperware-like containers we are currently using. I'm finding lots of great alternatives, but they are EXPENSIVE! At the minimum, I make DH's lunch - salad and a sandwich - every weekday, and I generally use at least one storage container after dinner, sometimes lunch. Does anyone have thoughts/suggestions on some affordable options? (and no, sadly, I am not crafty enough to sew my own sandwich pouches.)
Also - pardon my ignorance - is it bad to have some plastic involved if it does not touch the food or ever go into the dishwasher or get heated in the microwave? For example, these (more affordable) glass containers below have a "silicone" lid - I thought maybe I could only put the glass part in the dishwasher and handwash (not in hot water!) the plastic lids?
And these sandwich pouches do have plastic linings - but again, if the plastic is not ever heated would these be bad to use?
Thank you in advance!!
