I recently ordered these silicone Souper Cubes freezing trays and find them very handy.  I like to have homemade soups in the freezer and Souper Cubes allows you to freeze your soups or sauces in 2 cup or 1 cup portions.  The soup or sauce is easy to pop out and use without having to defrost the entire tray.  The wells in the trays each have ½ cup, 1 cup, 125ml and 250ml fill lines. Each tray comes with a lid.  A 2-pack of either size with lids is $36.00.  A single freezer tray with lid is $19.95.
