3 Weapons in the War Against Tupperware

It seems my Tupperware has begun to invade my pot cupboard. Why? I don’t know. If anything, my Tupperware should be taking up less space considering half of the lids are missing anyway. Sound familiar? I bet it does. I know that story all too well, and in my efforts to defeat the trespassers I’ve devised 3 really effective ways to beat the Tupperware at their sneaky game of invasion and disappearance.
1. The Hanging Pot Rack
In my enthusiasm to win the storage invasion war I decided to buy a hanging pot rack for my kitchen. What a great idea! Not only does it look awesome, giving the kitchen a certain rustic culinary feel, but it actually also freed up a remarkable amount of cupboard space. My Tupperware is no longer limited to the measly 40cm² real estate below my cutlery drawer. What’s more, I now even have enough space in my kitchen cupboards to give the salad bowls their own section!
2. Less is Less
Nope, I’m not attempting to make some redundant statement. Let me explain: less Tupperware means less anger and confusion. Herding Tupperware is like herding cats. It’s much easier controlling and tracking fewer wanderers than it is trying to contain all the little guys infesting every home within a 15km radius of your life.
I went through my Tupperware collection. It. Was. Brutal. I threw out and gave away what I didn’t really need. Even the weird dip server I got three Christmases ago and thought I might need if I ever had to cater for the masses. Truth be told, for the first time ever, I know exactly what Tupperware I own, how many of them there are, and their colours. Scouts honour.
3. There’s No Such Thing as Overly-Attached
Tubs losing lids could be a thing of the past for me with a super simple solution: I should only buy tubs where the lids are permanently attached. That goes for all containers in my Tupperware section. Obviously, there are the few of my favourites that managed to survive the plastic genocide from my previous step and that’s fine considering I use them fairly often. But as of now, the next time I need to buy a new container, I’m opting for the one with a conjoined sibling. Lid hunting is a thing of the past. It won’t happen if it isn’t possible.
I no longer stand aside helplessly and watch hopelessly as my Tupperware situation spirals out of control. Having these 3 simple weapons in my arsenal has allowed me to take the wheel. These weapons have destroyed disorder and I’ve regained power.
If you know what I mean (or are lucky enough to not know), and would like to voice your own stories and frustrations, I’d like to hear about. So feel free to make use of the comment section below.
