The food storage can be in any size of container. The “Use It or Lose It” food storage book, prepared by USU suggests finding storage containers that fit the space you have available and in a size that matches the frequency in which you use the product stored. It is possible to use gallon bottles, smaller jars or individual containers. Use only products designed for food – which would include Rubbermaid containers
