Replacing my hodgepodge of plasticware - What are your favorite food storage containers and why?

OK, it is January and it is time for The Great Purge. We are cleaning out everything in the house, from the attic to the closets to the drawers and the kitchen is getting a MAJOR overhaul.

My personal little corner of kitchen hell is the tupperware/plastic storage container area. We have a mishmash collection of all manner of plastic, some with lids, some without, some lids without bottoms - you all know what I'm talking about.

So as part of The Purge, I'm getting rid of almost all of it - most of it is seriously old and crapped out anyway. So what do you like to use for storage containers?

My criteria:
1. Every bottom must have a lid that fits tightly.
2. They must stack into each other well to take up a minimum of space. I don't have a lot of room to store it.

It does not have to be microwave safe, since I don't own a microwave. If I need to reheat something, it goes in a pot on the stove or in something into the oven.

Thanks, and wish us luck!
