In Israel it seems to be a constant battle trying to buy a reasonably priced product without it falling apart in three seconds. We used to buy strictly according to price but after being constantly frustrated because we had to buy ANOTHER hairbrush/pencil sharpener/backpack/etc., we decided that for many items, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. In the kitchen I admit that I have a lot of disposable containers that are re-used often- that is, until my child comes home hysterical because her lunch leaked all over her science project. Storage containers need to be sturdy to survive your child’s backpack and they need to keep their contents in the container. Tupperware is one of those brands that you know will last forever- I think everyone has one item from their parents or grandparents that are still going strong. My favorite Tupperware item is my soup mug with a vent hole on top which NEVER leaks.
