Disposable cups for food?

Disposable cups for food? - 04/12/18 05:09 AM

Ok... after years of not being perfectly happy with my food setup, I need advice or ideas from the community!

I just switched to using disposable ‘boats’ for the salad and small porcelain containers for the CL complete... however, we recently moved in with my inlaws and do not have kitchen sink downstairs. Although I hate to make the decision to completely convert to disposable containers, this is where I am at. My problem is that I don’t know what containers to get and where. They need to be sturdy enough that they don’t get knocked over (even some porcelain ones have this problem). I ordered a gecko tray and ended up returning it because it was FOAM! Also the cups were so many different sizes that it was difficult to determine which ones to get. Any ideas???

Thanks in advance!

Feather shared this link with me:

It's a 3 compartment tray. She puts staple in 1 section, F/v salad, and water in the last. I'm glad you mentioned this, I forgot to shop here...

Kim, those are really neat on the link you posted, however, since she does not have access to a sink, they won't work for her.

We have had several members who use heave paper like dessert size plates with success and some have even used the foam plates. I do think the heavy paper would work better than the foam as they seem heavier to me.

When I'm being lazy or needing a friend who doesn't want a lot of work to pet-sit, I get the little cake-slice sized plastic plates.

How many cages are you feeding?

I would keep the set up your using and just get a bucket to carry the little dishes up in.

That is what I had to do where I used to live and I was carrying 6 to 8 dishes upstairs every day.
