You probably already own a few nice storage containers, but it’s not like you’re gonna start giving them away, along with all your Thanksgiving leftovers. It’s bad enough you have to share the rest of your beloved stuffing with the flock of people who’ve made their way to your house.

That’s why you need some of these to-go containers that you wouldn’t mind parting with. Here are 10 of our favorites.
