Default Tupperware

It seems like the best way to keep tobacco fresh is in tupperware. Where can I find some cheap tupperware, and what is a good size to fit 250g of tobacco? How much should I look to spend on 10?

Head down to the local grocery store and look for these:

Then, on the same shelf, look about two feet to the left. There you'll find the store brand version for half the price.

Big Lots, Walmart, K Mart, Grocery Store, or maybe your moms cupboard.

I got some nice glass ones from walmart and some plastic ones I stole from my moms house.

For my 250g stuff I really just like Ziploc bags and putting them back in the original boxes.

+1 to uglybiker's post. Except I don't go as cheap as store brand. But the same thing all in all. My old stash pics, and new pic, show how well I like them.

Why would you keep 50 & 100g samples in tupperware, and 250 in origianl packaging?

Wouldnt you want to keep the bigger samples fresher for longer?

Zipper bags are really nice. They are cheap, you can get them in almost any supermarket, and they will keep your shisha fresh.

I put 250 grams in them, and leave 125gr and 50gr in the original package.

Put them 250g in Ziplocs then back into the Original Box.... To me Ziplocs keep stuff fresher considering I can push out the air.

As for why I put the 50g and 100g in Tupper Ware and not in Ziploc is because I usually cant get small enough bags to fit back in the Original Boxes. and I got this tiny mini Tupperware that work nicely for them. I usually just put the orginal box on top, but think I am going to just using masking tap and label them that way.

The only thing I like about Tupperware over ziplocs is its easier to get shisha out because you dont get it all over the back of your hands reaching in. On the other hand, Again I like ziplocs because I can push out all the air.

I sometimes use store brand tupperwear (I think it was like a 3 pack for 88 cents), other times I just use ziplock bags and put them back into the original packaging.

These hold 250g of tangiers perfectly and this is what I use. It runs less than $3 per pack at WalMart.

I would definitely go to Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, or Dollar General. Can't go wrong there. Look into one of those, mostly Dollar Tree, cuz EVERYTHING is a dollar....so, thats where i will be going. lol Hope that helped!

Thanks for the input guys. I just bought 10 ziploc tupperware for under $4. The convienience of not making a mess is well worth it in my opinion.

You guys were right, Walmart's selection and prices can't be beat!

I didn't see the twist n lock, so I went with the snap and seal.
