Rubbermaid has been in my family for years. If it wasn't the Tubberware brand then it was Rubbermaid. On one of my weekly trips to Walmart, I found these Rubberbrand TakeAlong containers. They hold about 3 cups of whatever you want to put in them.
Rubbermaid is very sturdy. I have the dropsies a lot and there have been times that I have put food or liquid in these containers and actually dropped them on the floor. They have not open, cracked, or spilt on the floor which saved me from a big mess.
These TakeAlongs were a great price and I am glad that I have kept Rubbermaid in my family. I never regret my choice because I know that I will be saving myself from the mess later.
If you need a new set of storage containers, then I would reccomend these.
