Time to Contain the Tupperware

Does this look familiar? How frustrated does this make you?

Take a few minutes to sort, purge and contain your plastic ware. All your plastic ware – I don’t mean to pick on Tupperware. It’s also Rubbermaid, Sterilite, old take-out containers and Gladware.

Your food storage will be so much more functional. This is one place where less is more. Actually, I often tell clients to consider having only one size of container that will stack inside each other, so every lid will fit every container and so everything will stack nicely in the frig.

Can’t narrow down to one size? At least get rid of the tops with no bottoms, the bottoms with no tops, the warped lids, the cracked containers and all those specialty items that you haven’t used in a long time. Stack the containers inside each other and gather all the lids together. Grab one of those discarded square containers and stand up all the lids inside. Is your plastic ware more organized? Easier to use? Organize On!
