7 oz fage yogurt cup + "working glass" plastic lid = it fits

Just something little I figured out this week.

Because I can never eat a whole 7 oz container of Fage Greek yogurt in one sitting, I always have a portion left over in the fridge. This brand of yogurt also comes without a lid & using plastic wrap is a pain.

If you have the "working glass" series, the lid will fit your yogurt. I purchased mine from Crate & Barrel for $1.50 (glass) & $ .50 (lid). I have also seen them in other shops.

p.s. The 14 oz working glass is such a useful size for storing carrot/celery sticks, keeping left over broth or making a small amount of whipped cream. It's very sturdy too, not bad for $1.95

  1. Thanks for the great tip! I have a bunch of those working glasses and the Fage yogurt cups are great for storing leftovers and tossing them in the recycle bin after rinsing them without running through the dishwasher.

    1. Thanks from me too! There is only one Crate and Barrel store within an hour's drive of where we live, so I haven't been inside one in literally decades. I have been using regular glasses w/plastic wrap for so many things (not a fan of plastic containers if I can possibly avoid them, even the "good" plastic, LOL) so these look like a much better alternative!
