It is inevitable that, while cruising, you tend to eat a lot of canned food. It is just part of the job. But, you know what? Sometimes I don’t want an entire can of black beans for dinner. Occasionally I just want to use half a can of chopped tomatoes for my tacos. Or, maybe, I want to save half of that can of chicken for lunch tomorrow.
While we were cruising our only solution to this was to either poor the left overs into an airtight container and toss it into the freezer (causing extra dishes and water usage), or use a loose tin foil cover that was not even close to air tight. We needed a better solution. We looked online for different can covers and only found ones for weird pet food can sizes. Now that we are back stateside and have easy access to grocery stores we find ourselves relying a little less on canned food on a day to day basis. We needed to make sure that the canned food we did use didn’t go to waste. So, I hopped on trusty old Amazon and found these can lids. While these are technically designed for pet food cans, they work perfectly for human food as well. The inner can lid section fits regular sized cans (15 ounces) and the outer section fits the big cans (28 ounces). We’ve been using them for about 6 weeks now and are really happy with how “fresh” they keep our canned foods. The best part is that they only cost $1.99 for three of them!
