my favorite must-haves for thanksgiving leftovers recipes
When it comes to storing Thanksgiving food and Thanksgiving leftovers recipes, there’s a lot of products out there to choose from! It’s amazing how having a matching set of storage containers can not only organize your fridge but also organize your pantry (and you all know I am always a sucker for organization!).
For me, the first thing to have on hand for Thanksgiving is a set of disposable food storage containers. This is the best solution for sending friends and family home with leftovers, while also giving a little festive touch.
If you are in need of new storage containers, try grabbing a storage containers set. I love having this on hand for weekly meal prep, but also for any leftovers!
You can also pick up this simple meal prep container set if you are looking for a set that is all the same size.
Finally, when you accumulate a bunch of difference food storage sets, you end up with a bunch of lids. Therefore a lid organizer comes in handy!
Want to keep all your food fresher, for longer? Get your hands on a vacuum sealer machine!
