Storing the Food in Any Old Container
For food storage, just about any goes, from clear plastic to glass to zip-top bags. The one mistake Gunders says many of us make is repurposing opaque containers, such as ones that originally held yogurt or sour cream. If you can't see what's inside, it's too easy to forget about it, she says, so stick with see-through vessels. Food will keep safely in a 40-degree-or-below refrigerator for at least three to four days, says Gunders.
