• Get a set at the Dollar Store? Sorry!! Unless you know for sure how many ounces a container holds, you can only guess. Some of the Ziploc-type containers have the measurements marked on the side of the container. If you are just cooking, guessing is ok..I never measure when I cook, I go all by taste and sight. For baking, you have to be accurate.

• A Tupperware kids glass is usually 8 oz so that would be a cup or so.

• If you have measuring spoons, then 4 Tablespoons equals 1/4 cup, 8 Tbsp. = 1/2 cup and 16 Tbsp. = 1 cup.
