If you’re anything like me, meal prep is one of the most dreaded parts about cooking. There’s something about preparing food in bulk that just feels too monotonous and draining after a long day, especially if I’m only preparing meals for myself or my partner and me. However, it saves a ton of time during the week and makes me feel more productive. Because of this, there’s a growing collection of plastic food storage containers in my cabinet that’s becoming as daunting as the meal prep itself.

To add a little extra charm to cooking meals in bulk, Instagrammer @dollartreeinsider found the most adorable food storage containers at their local Dollar Tree that will certainly bring some bright vibes for spring to your kitchen. Each container is white with a lid and has the cutest lemon and vine patterned print.

While these containers are perfect for spring and summer, you’ll want to use these all year to add a little color to your day, especially if you’re using these to carry lunch to work. Perfect for hearty salads, leftovers from the night before, and grain bowls, your food will stay fresh until it’s ready to eat. You can also remove the lids and use them as bowls for snacks or dip at the next picnic, barbecue, or holiday celebration. (You’re bound to get a ton of compliments.)

Commenters on the post were loving the find calling it “so cute” and “adorable.” Others even mentioned that this product was available last year as well. 

It doesn’t seem that the bowl is available online just yet, but you can grab one (or a few) from your local Dollar Tree for $1.50 each. Since these were available last year and then disappeared, you’ll want to grab them while you can — they’ll be gone before you know it. While you’re there, be sure to look out for these acrylic bins (perfect for fridge storage) and glass pink candleholders, which every table needs for spring.
