With the school season starting, the inevitable lunch making marathon will commence. Unfortunately, it means weâre forced to face the scariest cupboard in the kitchen-the Tupperware cupboard. Everything from mismatched lids and bottoms, old Chinese food takeout containers, sippy cups and water bottles consume the small, allocated space for all eco friendly tableware. Where to begin?
First, choose a cupboard or drawer that is easily accessible. It will make putting back all of the pieces that come with Tupperware easier, allowing you to take a more organized approach when doing so.
Then, discard any pieces that have seen better days or are missing their lids or bottoms. Warped covers, stained containers or cracked pieces donât need to take up any extra space you may have. Chances are you havenât been using them anyway. Let them go.
Next, stack all matching sized container bottoms and lids. In order to conserve space, simply place the bottoms within one another and leave the corresponding lids to pile on top. Leave all the pieces you use the most at the front of the shelf and place any larger items for freezing to the back.
Finally, designate a shelf for all of the reusable water bottles and cups. Being able to see what you need, will allow you to keep the space organized. Remember the concept âless is moreâ when purging. Chances are, you wonât be needing 10 of the same sized containers at once, so free up that space and live a little lighter!
Tupperware certainly has a way of multiplying, so take a moment every now an again to make sure itâs not taking over your kitchen! It makes putting the clean containers away a whole lot easier if youâre not worried about getting trapped under twenty pounds of Tupperware when you open the cupboard!
