Tupperware

We have a cabinet for Tupperware and non-brand Tupperware in our kitchen. It is chock full of containers and lids of a wide variety of sizes and shapes. We have tiny 3-tablespoon size containers and large 2-gallon containers.

Unfortunately, the number, size and shape of the lids bears no relation whatsoever to the number, size and shape of the containers.

I threw out all of my old tupperware and started from scratch with gladware. The short square and the tall square hold almost anything you need--only rarely do I need anything bigger. And they stack neatly with the lids on top of the stacks and hardly take up any room. I am anal about my tupperware cabinet, in case you couldn't tell! I keep threatening my mom that I will throw hers away!

I am very excited about this so I am going to use all caps.

JUST TODAY I GOT SO FRUSTRATED WITH THE STATE OF OUR TUPPERWARE COLLECTION THAT I MOVED IT TO AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT ROOM THAN THE KITCHEN.

I don't know what I'm going to do with it because although I use (some of) it, it takes up too much space and WHY DON'T THE LIDS FIT.

See you on IM sometime soon?

I know! I KNOW. Where do these lids come from that fit NONE of the containers? Is there some sort of tupperware gremlin that throws away one half of every container/lid set?

I think it has something to do with the sock monster...

its like the way one or two of those horrid metal coat hangers breed into dozens if left alone, or socks seem to be cannabalistic and seem to eat other
