I had a few too many canister styles for the pantry. I poured IQF blueberries (leftover from the muffin breakfast) into one for the freezer. The hard plastic sides should protect the berries better than that thin bag.We always have deviled eggs on hand for my husband's low carb snacks. The Tupperware deviled egg keeper (99 cents) is the only airtight container I've found that doesn't smush the filling. Once it's in the refrigerator, you can stack things on top of its flat surface.
I discovered the Tupperware pickle box on vacation. Within the box, the pickles sit on a flat strainer base; lifting the handle pulls the pickles out of their liquid. (Fewer finger germs, though I doubt many could live in pickle juice anyway.) We've been buying Claussen pickles with coupons, then adding fresh cucumber slices to marinate in the pickle box.
While I could probably recycle other containers, the sheer novelty of old Tupperware keeps me motivated in the "homemade kitchen." I suppose that's what Tupperware promised vintage housewives, too.
