Answer:

Sure thing: You want a slew of Nalgene bottles. Made of durable, food-safe polyethylene, they come in virtually every shape and size, suitable for vast amounts of hot sauce or minute amounts of vanilla extract. And you can get squeeze, flip, or screw tops for dispensing. (I recommend always going with screw tops—they’re less likely to leak.) The Nalgene Multi-Purpose Vial Kit and Nalgene Travel Bottle Kit are two great sets that should cover you for most everything.

But you can also go to nalgenelabware.com to find other options.

    You can get small 2 inch by 3 inch zip top bags at Walmart. They are sold for taking pills with you when you travel. Packs of 30 or so. they are great for small quantities of spices and semi solids such as face cream.
