I have a random selection of odd shaped Tupperware, loads of lidless boxes and loads of boxless lids, also loads of cheap stuff MIL gave me where the lids don't fit.
I never seem to have the right sized container for anything. What is a good option, which brands etc.

If you've got this far without nodding off thanks grin

I love these types of threads (party animal, me ;) )

Try something like these. I always go for the snap lids as they don't shrink

I do tend to use disable Chinese takeaway style ones (pound shop) mostly though, for ease

Does anyone know of a set that stacks inside itself to save space?

Yay I'm not alone!
I use a lot of those from the many takeaways we eat Mrswellyboot they are great for small portions but I need bigger!

That would be good halfway

I have two under two, cook everything from scratch and have very little time so I buy disposable takeaway containers for leftovers and to freeze batch cooking.

To store pantry stuff (pulses, small baking things like seeds, almond flakes) I use IKEA pruta. Cheap but does the job for storing long term without daily heavy duty washing.

For all the rest I use Glasslock which is super resilient and closes really well.

I didn't realise I had a Tupperware system and so much to say about itblush blush

Lock & Lock make nestable containers which store neatly. Also the lids will fit several sizes of box, they are sold in Lakeland

Clicky link for the nestable ones:

Also, lock-and-lock do a set of lidded bowls which store inside each other. Bit of a PITA when you need the smaller one and have to open and close all the others to get at it, but does save space.

I can't use IKEA pruta. Prutta (with 2 ts) is Swedish for fart. (misses point of thread)

I bought some Tesco versions of lock and lock, so the lids will stay on in the DCs' lunchboxes, but mainly just use takeaway containers too, freezing stuff in 2 person portions.

lock'n'lock - but avoid the round ones, the clips tend to break off i have found

Lock and Lock can be bought at The Range if you have one nearby. Haven't seen the stacking stuff there though.
At the moment I have a cardboard box with my various lock and locks and similar ones in it. But could really do with the stackable sort....plans shopping list!
