When you're packing your lunch for work, one of the most annoying tasks is gathering up three or four different containers for all your food, dressings and dips. But a new container hack for is going to change your lunch-packing game forever.

Last week Twitter user Mama Graciee inadvertently revealed a hack that has revolutionized lunch prep for us- the indentation on the lids of larger Glad containers doubles as a lid for the tiny cups.

That's right-the seemingly awkward circular indent in your GladWare lid isn't a weird design; it's for popping in a smaller container (think salad dressing or nuts) to nestle inside your large container (where the salad veggies go). And while we're calling this a hack, it's actually how Glad intended for this system to be used.

We have to admit this idea is completely genius-and makes us wonder how we didn't discover it sooner. The storage potential is endless:

  • Dressing or toppings for salad
  • Hummus for sliced veggies
  • Granola for yogurt
  • Fresh fruit for cottage cheese
  • Sriracha for grain bowls
  • Croutons for soup

Keeping the toppings separate, but still in the same container, eliminates soggy salads and prevents you from forgetting to pack another tiny cup of ranch.
