Do you have a task that you know you have to do but you put it off and put if off until it drives you so crazy that you just have to deal with it?
Yeah, that’s my Tupperware cabinet. I hate it.
You see, even before I had kids it was a pain in the butt. The lids. The bottoms. Never being able to find the right top to the right bottom. It’s a pain.
And then the kids came along which of course means more Tupperware. To be fair, most of the stuff isn’t even Tupperware. There’s some Ziploc, Glad and even a few Fit-n-Fresh containers, but Tupperware gets the blame because it started this whole mess. Damn those house parties.
The kids have chores. One of those chores is to empty the dishwasher. I’m pretty sure they open the Tupperware cabinet door just enough to shove in whatever piece needs to be put away and then they slam the door shut before it all comes tumbling out.
That’s my theory anyway. So, I blame this sad state of affairs on the kids because they don’t read my blog and can’t present their side of the story. I win.
As you know, I’m not a morning person. Starting my day with a shower of Tupperware raining down on me when I reach in for a single container to put some grapes in for my kid’s lunch is not the way I want to start my day.
So, I finally tackled the cabinet…
Goodbye Pampered Chef Chill Tray. I never use you and you take up way too much space. And why pray tell do I have four cake takers? I can’t even remember taking a cake anywhere in the past decade. My mother-in-law must be wondering where all of her Tupperware went. Looking at this stack of orange and avocado bowls before me, I think I know what happened to them.
And why do I have three times as many lids as I have bowls? Is there an equivalent monster that eats bowls like the dryer sock eating monster? It’s a mystery.
I now have a hefty donation for Goodwill. Which seems only right after all of the Pyrex I’ve been buying from the thrifts. There’s got to be someone out there that collects Tupperware.
How does your Tupperware cabinet look? Do you struggle with keeping it neat?
