Everyone has experience with going crazy because you can’t find the right Tupperware lid for the specific container. This is a problem, and usually causes people to go through cycles of buying and throwing out Tupperware.
Good news – this will no longer be your life. Thanks to Hometalk, there is now an easy way to keep your Tupperware organized so you don’t have to deal with not finding the lid or container.
The best part about this system is it doesn’t take much time at all to put into place, and once you are all set up, you will get back loads of cabinet space because no longer will Tupperware be strewn about.
1. Get your Tools
Organization of Tupperware is much easier than you may think. A simple drill along with a couple organizers including a dish-drying rack (you use the dishwasher so do you really need it?) will help you get ahead of the problem.
2. Match Lids with Containers
This could be the most annoying part of this job – but it’s also most important. If you have any mismatches, put them off the side. The critical thing to do is make sure that once you match the lid to the container, keep them together.
3. Get your Dish Drying Rack
This rack is critical to your organization efforts as it will be the place where you store all those lids. Make sure the rack is clean and dry, of course, and then gather up your lids to start organizing.
4. Organize According to Size
Make sure your lids are organized according to size. Don’t put the small lids in a place where they can fall out. The cutlery section of the drying rack is great here, so make good use of it.
5. Food Storage Bins
These bins are perfect to put the actual containers in. Organize by size, and if you have the same size containers, stack them so they don’t come loose. These bins are perfect to use especially if you have different styles of Tupperware.
