What do you use?? We have some Rubbermaid ones that don't shut. They drive me crazy!! The ones at Costco don't seem a lot better. I would like some that can go in the freezer too.

Any suggestions?

Our Ziplock plastic containers seem to hold up pretty well. I also like my lidded ceramic casserole dishes for storing leftovers in the fridge. For the freezer, I usually just use foil-lined aluminum pans, plastic freezer bags, and yogurt/sour cream containers. Works so far, though I would love more options large enough to store whole meals (like a pan of enchiladas) in the freezer.

I use mason jars almost exclusively now, even in the freezer. I have a foodsaver vacuum sealer that has a mason jar attachment, so I'm able to really seal them well and prevent freezer burn.
