These disposable, water-resistant bags are great for

Deli pots


Waterproof plastic pots with lids are great for all manner of deli delights including

  • Olives
  • Deli counter lovelies

They can also be used to storefood in the freezer.

Haven’t used these but sourced them FYI

There are links on the individual posts to product suppliers we used.

While we would encourage you to shop local, if you are still having trouble finding what you want, I have put together an Amazon catalogue where you can find most of the above.

Useful stuff to know
