Oxo Airtight Storage Containers

If there is one thing that really bothers me it is wasting food. It has always been one of my biggest pet peeves in life. It bothers me so much that when my son was very young and brought his home-packed lunch to school he would never throw anything away.

Whatever food he could not finish at lunch he would pack back into his lunchbox to bring home just in case it could be saved. I never asked him to do that, but apparently all of my preaching to him about wasting food really sunk in and he was afraid that I would be angry if he threw away something that could have been saved for later. I always thought that was so cute because…really….how would I ever know what he threw away at school?

I am such a stickler about wasting food that I have tried just about everything imaginable to find the best solutions for storing various types of food.

I have to say that one of the best food storage solutions I have found are the Oxo brand airtight food storage containers. They are heavy-duty plastic containers that come in all different shapes and sizes. They have a very durable, tight-fitting silicone seal around the edge of the lid. When you put the lid onto the container there is a large button to press in the center of the lid. When you press that button the seal expands to squeeze out excess air and prevent new air from entering the container.

I use these to store dry goods like flours, sugar, nuts and seeds. They work perfectly and keep the food fresh for quite a long time.
