I vote for ziplock bags.

Bags are probably going to be the best use of space... They will conform to their container and you can pull air out of them.

Any jar or Tupperware you use will just waste space.

Plastic milk jugs. Just don't fill them clear full.

I just froze 6 half liter Dr Pepper bottles and 2 two liter bottles. I give them a little squeeze before putting the lid on to allow for expanding.

I use 500ml decorative mason jars. Use the ones that do not have the shoulders since the shoulders prevent the liquid from expanding.
Also, Do not fill past the bottom thread, this allows the liquid to expand and not break the glass.

Please refer to bernardins FAQ located here for a discussion regarding freezing liquid in mason jars:

I found the 500ml containers too small and am now trying out the 1.9L containers.
I am freezing 1.2L of 1.050 wort and then when I go to use it just dilute to 1.5 L before boiling. (so i get 1.5L of 1.040) I have standardized all my stepups to 1.5L
