I recently purchased a puck of MWF from Phil. I couldn't bring myself to spend the extra cash on the very classy looking dish, but I didn't realize that I was out of any kind of container suitable for soap storage. Today, I picked up some extra-small Ziploc Smart Snap containers (the ones advertising 100 calorie portions), figuring I would have to grate the edges down some. To my surprise, the puck fell just perfectly into place at the bottom. The edges are not straight, so there is a bit of a gap up the sides of the soap, but that's the only real negative. Just thought I would share in case someone else shares my sentiment on the decorative bowls. Aesthetically pleasing? Not really, but hey, I'm into programming, not graphic design.

I remember finding some 1 dollar ceramic appetizer bowls , over at BB&B and the MWF and D.R. Harris brushes fitted perfectly fine.They also look good (white color).

I'm a big fan of the Anchor Hocking clear glass 1 cup resealable bowls. You can get 3 of them for about $7. My Tabac, MWF, AOS, Crabtree & Evelynn, and Provence Sante pucks fit fairly easily.

I use the Ziploc XS size lidded bowls, ugly but very functional.

Another vote for Anchor Hocking bowls, they're great for soaps, especially DR Harris pucks, they fit so perfect it's like they were made for them. The best deal on them here is at Big Lots (bargain basement chain) and they're $6.50 for 4 bowls/lids. I like the labels GeneAut used, neater and more elegant than my approach, I've always just scribbled the contents on the lid with a sharpie.

Here a shot of one with an Arlington puck.

That looks good. I like the cutout of the box top.

I use a bowl that is extremely similar to the Anchor Hocking. Except it goes by Pyrex
