Does anyone know where I can get large quantities of containers to freeze meals? I have been buying them from the supermarkets but you don't get many and the cost is mounting up. I would like to order them on line really. Does anyone know anywhere I could get some?

I would also like to buy an extra large pan and casserole dish. Can anyone suggest anywhere>

Ask friends to save the plastic tubs from chinese takeaways for you? Go to a pound shop?
Also you can use sealable freezer bags, even for liquids.
Extra large pan - caterers equipment outlet or Asian supermarket

I use these foil containers in various sizes. You may be able to get similar from cookery shops.

Hi mumcanIaskaquestion yes thats the kind of thing I was looking for. How many does that size serve for your family? Wanted to order on line to try and make life easier!! How do you find Lakeland? Do you order much from them?

I can get a good 6/8 portions of Lasagne or Shepherd pie for example.

Sorry I missed about ordering from Lakeland, yes i order a lot a fair bit from them as I don't have shops anywhere near where I can get bits from.

Zip lock freezer bags are great for curries etc to freeze. Also you can use the celebrations sweet tin to freeze large amounts
