Tips for Kitchen Organization for Tupperware

Arguably, there is no other area in a house that will become as cluttered and difficult to manage as the Tupperware cabinet/drawer/shelf. This may seem a random statement, but if you take a moment to think about it, you will agree. Head to your kitchen right now and open the place you store your Tupperware; the chances are you will fall victim to an avalanche of plastic containers. For some reason, the Tupperware containers are rarely in order despite you being certain they were placed correctly last time you checked. This article will provide some tips on how to regain control of the messy Tupperware cabinet.

1. Decluttering The Cabinet

The first step to managing a Tupperware cabinet is by decluttering the area. This sounds quite obvious and simple, but there is an art to decluttering a cabinet. Begin by removing all the items in the cabinet including the Tupperware containers, then match each container to the corresponding lid. If there is no matching lid to container, the place for that mismatched item is the trash.

It is recommended you take a moment to check the shape of the containers when decluttering as well. If you see any stains or marks on the containers, it would be a good time to consider recycling or throwing the item away. Of course, you may be tempted to keep the newer containers; however, if you don’t use them at all it may be better to dispose of them instead of having them clutter up the area.

By engaging in a decluttering activity at least once or twice a year, you are likely to find yourself avoiding the dreaded Tupperware avalanches.

2. Use A Storage System

One of the simplest ways to control any cabinet or drawer is by organizing the area, and this is the same for the Tupperware problem. Being able to see the entire array of containers you own is the biggest problem, and where the mis-matching occurs. We offer a pull out shelf solution for this problem; you can install one of our DIY pullout shelf kits with  7″ walls and keep all the containers contained, as well as gain access to ALL of your items.

3. Keeping Lids Separate

A highly beneficial suggestion is to keep the Tupperware lids separate to the containers, possibly in an entirely separate drawer. This will prevent you from squeezing both containers and lids into one small cabinet resulting in potential clutter.

4. Upgrading To Glassware

‘Upgrade’ is a cost-associate word, but it does not have to be with the upgrade from plastic to glass being cheap and smart. Not only are the glass containers better for a person’s health, but they are easier to clean and less likely to stain than the plastic Tupperware counterparts.
