We absolutely love scoring great deals at Costco! Everyone knows the company has delicious and healthy food items. Still, you’re missing out if you ignore its other inventory, like top-notch electronics, trendy clothing, beauty essentials, and all the household must-haves. It’s one of our favorite places to shop! When shopping online, I noticed a “January Savings” deal that stuck out to me – the Anchor Hocking TrueSeal Glass Food Storage containers.

This product is such a steal for WW members! Or, really, anyone who loves to meal prep. The Costco set comes with eight containers and eight lids, and it’s on sale for $23.99. But even then, the standard price is $29.99, which is definitely worth it! Other similar sets are much pricier. The set features a wide range of sizes, which is perfect because you can put entrees in medium-sized containers and use the smaller containers for sides of rice, fresh fruit, or sauce.

Meal Prepping While on Weight Watchers

Weight Watchers says that pre-portioning your food can positively impact your progress if you are on a weight loss journey. Rather than making food on the spot and going back for seconds just because it is available, you can prepare your meals with the exact portion you need so you don’t end up overindulging.

Additionally, if you have ready-to-eat food available, you are less likely to choose unhealthy foods or order take-out that might exceed your daily point intake. There are tons of meal prep containers out there, but I think the most beneficial part of this specific product is that it is both freezer and oven-safe.

So, you can meal prep large batches of food and stick these containers right in the freezer. Their tight-fitting lids prevent freezer burn. Then, when you’re ready to eat it, you can either simply pop it in the microwave to reheat the food. Or go the extra mile, wait a few moments for the glass to come to room temperature, then reheat the food in the oven, which gives it an amazing freshness and tastes like brand new.

The Containers Are BPA-Free

Health-conscious people will appreciate that these containers are free from BPA. W&P explains that BPA, or Bisphenol-A, is a chemical that can be found in certain plastics. The problem with BPA is that it can seep into food from containers, which can result in serious health issues. But these containers from Costco are mostly made with glass, and the plastic part of the lid is BPA-free!

Ultimately, this Costco steal can be a game changer for Weight Watchers members who want to start or improve meal-prepping efficiency. If you haven’t gotten into make-ahead cooking yet, plenty of simple Weight Watchers meal prep ideas are out there for you to try! From spinach and feta make-ahead breakfast sandwiches to delicious soups that you can pre-portion out, you can utilize these Costco containers to help get the job done.

  1. I wish I had a Costco membership for there are some meat’s that are cooked cheap enough to buy to use for meals prep to have breakfast lunch and dinner all made up ahead of time so that it’s just easy to grab and go

    1. You can without Costco. Just cook your meals on the weekend and label. On your way out take out of the fridge. Simple. Don’t make it complicated.. I have Sav A Lot and buy my meats there and Winn Dixie. Cheap meats and many times BOGO.
