It's that time of year. Whether you're a busy parent preparing packed lunches for your children, or an older student who's on a budget and always on the go, food storage containers are a godsend.
It's always been a popular idea to be able to store food to eat at a later time, or to even transport food around with you. Here at Poundstretcher, we have a wide range of food storage options (be it paper or plastic) that are both affordable and handy.
Keeping Your Lunch Fresh
Now, when we think storage containers, we think lunch boxes. They're the ideal place to store your sandwiches for lunchtime. That's where these storage boxes (which can easily become lunch boxes) come in, but don't think they're just for adults.
We have a range that's perfect for children too, ready to take to school! For those wanting the princess life we have these Disney Princess boxes, for the superheroes, we have this Spiderman one, and for the ones who just love Disney in general, we have these fun Mickey and Minnie boxes to give their lunchtime a bit of colour and originality.
But, how can you wrap up those sandwiches for maximum freshness? Well, we also have Bacofoil non-stick tin foil, the ideal way of keeping the freshness in your grub.
Keeping Your Food Ready For The Reheat
Especially when on a budget, you might want to reheat leftovers from dinner, be it for lunch or to have for tomorrow night's dinner. One of the ways to go about this is with this fantastic microwavable lunch box, which includes a plastic knife and fork!
Or if you have actually made too much dinner and want to store it away for another dinner, then this microwaveable pot is another perfect solution! It's able to hold up to 2 litres, and you can safely warm your food up whenever you want, worry-free!
What You Can Store in Food Storage Containers
Well, what can you store in your containers? Anything your heart desires (within reason)! But for the kitchen, you can store things from flour and baking ingredients (ideal for you to live out your Bake Off dreams), leftovers, coffee, and anything else that you don't wish to spoil or expose to air! With airtight storage boxes coming in a range of sizes, you'll be able to keep things nice and fresh.
Also, why not store your veggies in these Vegetable Storage Bags? They're ideal for keeping them secure and out the way.
Where To Keep & How To Organise Your Food Storage Containers
With these handy boxes, you can stash them anywhere in your kitchen with ease. You can store them in the fridge or even in a cupboard for easy access to ingredients and the like. Or even this 5 piece storage container would be useful, it's freezer, microwave, and dishwasher safe!
But what about freezing, I hear you ask? Well, we also carry a range of resealable food & freezer bags that are absolutely perfect for freezing bread, meats, or anything else you wish to prolong the use-by date. They also make handy bags to store leftovers in the fridge or to stuff your sandwiches into.
So don't let your home, or even your lunchtime, go unorganised and stale. Nip on down to Poundstretcher for all your food storage needs, and all for affordable prices.
