Plastic containers tend to absorb odors and stains from the food put into them. For example tomato- based foods stain, and onions or garlic will leave their smell and taste in the plastic. . To prevent this, before putting the food in the container spray interiors of the container base and lid with cooking spray. Protects and makes for easier cleaning! Do this every time before use.

I like to use my Sundays to make meals for the rest of the week. I chop my veggies and put them in plastic storage bowls for my lunches. I cook one thing in the slow cooker to eat on all week. I portion it out for my meals so I never over eat it.
Plastic storage containers, slowcooker, and a meal plan.
Organize Plastic Storage By Labelling The Shelves!
In order to keep my Tupperware & other plastic storage in a structured place [and to help my hubby put it where it belongs!],I labelled the different shelves in the cupboard [yes-we have one cupboard devoted to storage of plastic!] according to SHAPE. The bottom shelf has all the circular shaped containers,the middle shelf has the squares/rectangles and the top shelf has all the liquid containers. It has helped in the ORGANIZATION OF PLASTIC WARE & helped my hubby assist me in putting it away!
