It seems like every time I buy plastic food storage containers, I always lose them. But for the past year now, I have been reusing the to-go boxes I have gotten from local restaurants because it works.

My friend asked me the other day where I got my food and I said I made it. But she couldn't figure why I was eating homemade food from a to-go box. So I told her I am cheap and keep using the ones I have had for a really long time.

She explained to me that she had no idea that was a thing. Well it is. Smart -- and a good thing.

 

The places in Yakima actually give you really cool to-go boxes, so it works.

What are some things that you have gotten at a restaurant that you still use? Tell us in the comments below.
