    Depending on where you work and how frugal things are - you might be using cleaned and re-purposed containers that product arrives in.

    Some of the more common ones: gallon sour cream pails (most places have a half billion of these over time), ice cream buckets, yougurt containers, etc. basically any pail / bucket that is uniform in size and food grade, obviously avoiding the ones that still smell like the food that came in them, pickle pails, saurkraut, seafood etc.

    Cheap and safe, just be sure to label them carefully.

    After a while they start to get worn out or hard to clean - just put them in the recycling.
