Food Storage Containers + Giveaway!

posted by Andrea | 10/11/2010

If you are like most people {including myself} you probably have some pretty grungy looking food storage containers hanging out in one or more of your kitchen cabinets. You might even have some stashed away in your basement or garage — just in case!

Am I right??

Well, this weekend, I was in the mood to purge — so decided it was time to purge some of my food storage containers.

I’ve seen worse, but for me, this was out of control and WAY too cluttered with items we don’t need or use.

Thankfully, I was recently contacted by Karen Norris — the inventor of Stack Mates — who sent me a full set of Stack Mates to try out in my own kitchen. Woo-hoo!

If you’ve never heard of Stack Mates {a.k.a. the most ingenuous and amazing food storage products ever!} it’s probably because they are a very new invention and are only advertised and promoted via TV infomercials.

But thanks to Karen’s generosity…you can enter to win a brand new, squeeky clean, 10-piece set of Stack Mates right here! {Keep reading for details}

And just in case FREE products aren’t enough motivation, here are 10 reasons why you could use a set of Stack Mates.
1. Your containers don’t have matching lids.

Stack Mates have interlocking lids that attach to the bottom…which means you’ll never lose a lid again.

2. Your containers are forever “pink” because of the pasta sauce and chili you stored in them.

Stack Mates don’t stain — even after several “tests” in the microwave and freezer.

3. Your containers are actually reused yogurt, cottage cheese, or sour cream containers.

Stack Mates will look so much prettier in your fridge…and you’ll actually be able to see what’s inside.

4. Your containers no longer have a tight seal.Stack Mates have a super tight seal. I even tried shaking them with chicken broth inside!

5. Your containers are coated with a white film from washing them a few too many times in the dishwasher.Stack Mates are dishwasher safe {top rack} and won’t discolor or get that nasty white film.

6. Your containers are warped and don’t hold their shape anymore.

Stack Mates are made out of a heavy-duty plastic that won’t warp or lose it’s shape.

7. Your containers are more than 10 years old {I would say 5 years…but I don’t want to ruffle too many feathers!}Stack Mates = brand new!

8. Your containers were supposed to be “disposable” containers when you purchased them 3 years ago.

Stack Mates = brand new!

9. Your containers don’t stack or nest nicely inside of each other.

Stack Mates nest perfectly inside each other. A 10 piece set stands only 3″ tall.

10. Your containers have somehow migrated to the home of your college kids, friends, neighbors, or co-workers and you’re not sure when {if ever} they will come home. Stack Mates are only for you…no sharing!


So, who would like a FREE 10-piece set of Stack Mates?

To enter, simply leave a comment telling me how Stack Mates would help you to simplify and organize your life.

This contest is open until Saturday, October 16, 2010, at 11:59pm EST.

ONE winner will be selected at random and announced on Monday, October 18, 2010. Please read my full disclosure policy or contact me with any questions you might have. I received a free set of Stack Mates to review; however all opinions are my own!

    I love #8. Isn’t that everyone?

  3. Margaret


    I am in desperate need of new food storage containers. I love the way the lid attaches to the container and all fit together. Such a system is essential for my small kitchen!

  4. Monica


    Love those! So many good reasons for them, but especially love how streamlined the system is. My paraphenalia is constantly sliding off the lazy Susan I store them on!

  5. Amanda W


    This would help me by avoiding an avalanche every time i open my pantry. :-)

  6. Amber


    These would be SO AWESOME to have, because I pack my hubby’s lunch in tupperware containers every day, and our system is not working!

  7. Sally


    Would love to have these! My husband accuses me of being ‘the child’ when i ‘play’ in my tupperware cabinet. Totally agree about the unmatching lids….but can’t throw them away because I might find the matching container!

  8. Kendra


    Seriously?!? All 10 of those reasons apply to my life! I have just recently started cooking and am in desperate need of storage containers! I would still keep some of the old ones because my 17 month old LOVES to play with them, but these would be for FOOD!

    Stack Mates would be useful to help me declutter the limited space in the kitchen cabinets. Perhaps I could convince my spouse to stop buying those disposable containers .Thanks

  10. Jen


    These would be really helpful. My problem is my containers are so mis-matched they don’t all fit in the cabinet good. Some tupperware, some rubbermaid, some chinese food place containers (maybe I could throw those ones out if i win).

  11. Linda


    wow, all those “before” style pictures are what my containers look like. I need some new ones and now!!!
    Thanks for the giveaway.

    My tupperware is in horrible condition and I would love to have only one shelf in the cupboard filled with containers.

  13. Juliana Tappen


    Your cabinets look neat compared to mine–I’ve resorted to just tossing in the lids and stacking the bowls. Looking for a lid has become a new challenge!

  14. Jana


    I love making big meals and then having leftovers for a couple days. It can be tricky sometimes to find enough containers of the correct sizes. Some new Stack Mates would surely help with this!

  15. Lara


    I NEED to get rid of all my old cottage cheese or yogurt containers! Having a nice matching set would be great!

  16. Lindsay Smith


    I have two cupboards full of old crappy unmatching tupperware that I have inherited from different people and haven’t had the time to sort through it all since I’ve had my baby! HELP!!

  17. Gretchen


    My 1 1/2 year old twins LOVE the storage container cupboard. The problem is that all the lids AND all the containers are randomly laying across my kitchen floor. With the Stack mates the lids and containers can stick together–that is half the mess I have to pick up!! I also love that they are square–most of mine are round and just don’t fit well in my fridge.

  18. Teri


    I’m a number 3. Cool Whip containers.

  19. Marie


    My refrigerator is so small. I would love these to use in that because I need to be able to stack. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I live in an RV and must account for every bit of space possible. I try and try to organize and use the least amount of space for storing containers. Also boxes of items must be kept at a minimum due to the wasted space in them! These look like an item that my friends in the RV park and I would utilize and appreciate!
