In most cases, I use fresh food for cooking. So, I don't use containers like cartons, boxes, or tubs (the last ones only when I buy ice cream for particular occasions).
All Sundays, I spend lunchtime with my family, and we serve the food in bowls (salads or some ice cubes) and jugs for the drinks.
For exercising, I use bottles to drink water. And if I forget, I buy the energy drink, which comes in cans.

I use lots of glass tubs to store food in the fridge and cartons for milk.
My different kinds of tea are stored in nice tins and I also use bowls to eat my breakfast, salads, rice, etc.

I use the bowl the most to contain the rice and eat in it. I also use the tubs, the packets to contain foods in the fridge.

I think, I use all types of this containers. Maybe the most usable type of container for me is packet, because when you buy food at supermarket, and you already stay in the queue near cash register, you can see, that many products in your trolley are in packets. I also use something like carton for keeping milk, but this container doesn't have lid. As I remember, I use tin only for keeping tea. Except containers, that are shown in this list, I use a sealed lunch-box for taking dinner to the job.

We use bottles the most. We usually use the water bottles for drinking water. We also use the milk bottles for drinking milk and we use milk for making cereals, puddings, custard and other sweet dishes etc.
