Inexpensive tupperware?

I'm trying to get better at meal planning, meaning freezer meals, but I am wondering if there is inexpensive freezeable tupperware. I only have 2 cas. dishes so I can use one, I have a few foil cas. pans that someone brought a meal over in that I've reused once, so I know those won't last long. I can't afford much and don't need much, but something big enough to put mealoaf muffins in (other than ziplock bags), mashed potatoes, etc... TIA

The rubbermaid stuff at target and walmart work well for us. And it's cheap.

This! But if you want this brand cheap, maybe a thrift store? I have the ikea containers and I like them a lot.

Re: Inexpensive tupperware?

I like glass ones(Pyrex, Glasslock) and I get them at thrift stores and TJ Maxx for cheap. The vintage Pyrex is great because of the glass they used it was super durable. So it can go from the freezer to the oven, oven to table for serving and then refrigerator for leftovers.

What about the disposable ones they sell... Gladware, etc... they last a while.

Re: Inexpensive tupperware?

you can just line your dishes with plastic wrap and put it in the freezer. then once it's frozen you can pull it right out (make sure you cut the plastic wrap long enough to wrap all the way around the food) and wrap it again, tightly with foil. That way it retains it's shape, and when you're ready to cook it, just pull it out, unwrap it and put it back in the baking dish.
