Free Storage Containers

Here's my Tightwad Tuesday tip:

Looking for some FREE sturdy storage containers for your bulk foods?

Try your local grocery store bakery. I called the local Fry's bakery, and they were more than happy to give me their empty frosting and glaze buckets. These are perfect for storing bulk foods like flour, sugar, oatmeal, rice and beans. They have a sturdy handle and good lid that snaps on tightly to keep out any moisture or bugs. Just be sure that you wash them out and let them dry very good before using them.

The ones that we've gotten that didn't have lids are used in the yard and garden.
