The Container Store LOVED me today that's for sure! Spent a good chunk of change in there converting all our containers!
If you are/were like me, and don't know what BPA is, GOOGLE BPA PLASTIC and see what you find. I can't believe I have been so in the dark about this for all these years. It NEVER occurred to me that heating up left overs in your plastic storage container could contaminate your food from the plastic!!! I mean good god people think of all the TV dinners people eat for meals that come on those plastic trays.....
How much you wanna bet they don't say BPA free on the bottom!? (I can't check because we don't ever buy tv dinners!)
So, I give you, CMae's updated fridge and cabinets!!
Now I have seen some posts from family bloggers that
don't even buy milk or water in plastic containers.
Mister Wonderful and I discussed this and in our opinion, think this is a bit much. Milk is never exposed to the heat obvi and same with our water bottles. We don't take them with us or leave them in cars, so therefore we feel we don't need to store the water in alternative containers. (Notice the Fiji water eh? Mister Wonderful "swears" this is the best water he has ever tasted) Notice my Nestle water. Haha I don't think there is a dang bit of difference personally other than the shape of the container they come in!
I'm pretty convinced that we have the world's smallest fridge (thanks to via landlord lol who bought the bottom basic of all appliances UGH) I've never had a fridge that didn't have a drawer for meat and cheese, or a side panel that wasn't big enough to store your eggs in! Grrrrr
These are some of my new containers Glass! Sorry the fruit looks so dark! there are Blueberries and blackberries in these!
I even got a container to store my lunchmeat and cheeses in.
Here are my lovely kitchen cabinets with my new BPA free storage containers for food!
Now the containers on the left are Rubbermaid and plastic but they are BPA FREE and say so on every bottom and top of the containers which means I can continue to use them in the microwave to heat up food and not worry about anything bad!
Bye bye old no namer no brand really of containers I got looooooong ago in college. What a mistake. Can't believe I kept them this long!
Well what are your thoughts? Had any of you heard about BPA?
