Myrtle Saves the World- Plasticware

Reuse plastic containers as tupperware (yogurt or cottage cheese containers, etc.). Put a piece of masking tape on the container to label it before storing it in the fridge. My mom used to do this to send home leftovers from Sunday dinners. I also love the Gerber "Lil' Entree" trays. They have two compartments and last through the dishwasher and microwave. I've washed and saved several of these and use them for my kids' meals. They're great for kids who can't have their different foods touching each other or can't scoop up their peas without plowing through their mac n' cheese.
Another great thing to reuse is plastic baby food containers. They're stackable and work great for kids' snacks, dipping sauces and portable salad dressing (save the lids as well), or any time a small bowl would come in handy.

Okay, I know you're talking about reusing existing plasticware (love the lil' entree trays idea btw), but I do have one thing on my mind that's sorta related. I have some "Take and Toss" sippy cups and utensils that I purchased at Target. They are labeled as "disposable". Are there people out there who actually "toss" these after using them?!? If so, I feel sad for them. I've gotten a lot of use out of them and they're still holding strong.
