Now that's a Good Lid

Back from Dollar General where they have shoebox containers for 97 cents less than what I recently purchased, at the Big-K.  97 cents, plus tax, times 18 containers.

That's a lot of money.

But you know what?  I really love the ones I already bought, for $1.97.  They're a tad bigger and see-through.  And I've already measured them to fit my bake shelf.  I love them.

Here's the older style going for less.

And look.  Just look how dingy that top box is.  Why I can barely see the onion skins and garlic.  Nobody wants that.

But check out this beauty.  That's some pretty onion sitting in that beautiful box. Think of all the ingredients I can stash.

It's like a dream.

And check out this old lid for the 97 cents less.  It's not even see-through.  I don't know what's in there.   Could be anything.  Don't know, can't see. 

But look at my new lid.  Why I can see right through it.

Now that's a good lid.

  1. Glad you can get excited about your lids! And actually, that's rather cheap. Plastic containers and such can cost more.

  2. Sweet. I thought I was the only one that got excited by plastic containers. (Although I use mine to store my prepainted plastic RPG minis.)

  4. Alex: Clear lids are exciting. I could return them and get the cheaper ones but I'm gonna splurge and keep the nicer ones.

    Boric: I nearly didn't post this but glad I did now that people can relate.

    Lurker: I love them.

  7. Pat: I didn't flip my lid but I started to break out in a small rash when I saw how much I overpaid for the better ones. Then I took pictures and thought, yeah, I'm keeping these. They're too pretty to return to the Big-K.

    mshatch: I love them. They're see-through, and bigger.

  9. I love me anything seethrough in the kitchen, especially plates and tea mugs - love to watch the colour of food in them while eating or drinking.

  12. Jeremy: I wasn't home until just recently. But I can only guess that I won't like this week either.

    DEZMOND: A long time ago I had these fantastic clear mugs, but they weren't just regular-shaped. They were fun for fancy hot drinks.

    Ray: Free onion. You're funny.

  14. Great box and lid. Anything that helps to keep organized is a good thing in my book.

  15. Bard: I bought these a few weeks back or so, but because of the cost, I hadn't washed and used them yet. But screw it. I know they are more money but my ingredients are worth it. Plus, they're really, really pretty.

  17. Adam: That is a bummer. I will miss ours when it goes, as well.

    Do you have a Dollar General? It's my new favorite store of the week.

  18. I bought those with the old lid a couple of weeks ago from DG. I'm using them to store my unpainted mini's. They were dead cheap, but I'll have to go back and see if my DG has them cheaper.
