Most days we take lunch to work because its usually healthier than what we can buy and it saves us money of course. I am fine with taking a sandwiches and some veggies but after a few days I need something else and the results of after we cook in bulk are always a treat. Most often the left-overs require reheating in the office microwave. While we have a sizable collection of plastic containers I recently bought some glass storage containers for reheating lunches as I have read/heard too many stories about plastics leaching into your food as you heat the plastic. Moreover, leftovers like spaghetti and chili stain plastic containers which isn’t pleasant while glass ones wash out easily. I did make sure that I bought glass containers made in the US (have yet to find any made in Canada) as those made in China are said to contain lead. I have bought glass storage containers on sale for about $2.50 each. Most plastic containers you can get for $1 but I figure the life span of a glass container is at least 5 times the life span of a plastic one if not more, so money saved for sure
