I love Thanksgiving, but I don't manage the leftovers well. I always end up throwing food away. I had wasting food – i.e. money! (Side note: remember to always be safe when handling leftovers.)
I read this tip today (from the fab Buttoned Up ladies): Ask your guests to bring 3-4 plastic containers to take leftovers home.
I love this idea of having containers ready to load up with leftovers. What if you (the host) supply the containers? Our TakeAlongs are ready to help! They come in multi-packs (value!) and all different sizes, so everything from turkey to taters will fit inside.
TakeAlongs have plenty of other uses (organizing crafts, hardware, office supplies…), so your guests can use them for food storage or to organize something else once they have enjoyed their leftover delights!
