Yesterday, I got a burst of energy and decided to tackle a task I’ve been needing to address:
Organizing the Tupperware cabinet.
I have to clean it out every few months. As hard as I try, it never stays organized, and I’ve given up on killing myself to keep it that way. It only takes about twenty or thirty minutes to fix it up, so I just take that on whenever it gets out of hand.
Here’s what it looked like this time:
Yesterday, I started to question my container-organizing skills and started to wonder whether my system was really the best.
So, I’m asking you, dead readers (I LOVE calling y’all “dead readers”): how do you organize your Tupperware?
I’ve tried two different approaches, and I don’t know whether there are more, but now I don’t know which of the two is best. I used to store the lids with each corresponding container, but that seemed to get disorganized faster. So then, I bought myself some lid holder thingys at the Container Store, and now I store them all separate, lids together and containers together.
These are the lid holders, post-rearranging:
When I was all done, I ended up with a plethora of extra lids and some extra containers. How does this happen??? How can I lose containers without lids, or vice versa? I don’t get it. Here’s all my randoms that I ended up recycling:
Also, what do you call these dealies? I always call them Tupperware, kind of like how I call tissues Kleenex. But what do you call them? Plastic containers?
I am full of questions for y’all today.
Please enlighten. And have a lovely day. Martha post coming next!
