|Custom Kitchen Organization|
Our friend Chris from Tupperware always has great ideas. This month Chris is talking a little bit about organization since we all spend a lot of time trying to straighten up the house at the beginning of any new year.
If you think the way I do about Tupperware as holding only leftovers….do you have another thing coming! It’s the perfect storage container for all your pantry foods. Well, why am I rambling on here, let’s let Chris do the talking!!
Do me a favor, go to your kitchen and look at your cupboards and/or pantry. Like what you see? If not, that might be a good place to start your organizing.
Why customize, organize, sanitize and modularize your kitchen storage?
I know you're busy with family, work, travel, hobbies and life. It's quite possible that your full schedule means that your kitchen storage doesn't get the attention it needs. Disorganization can be frustrating and can lead to feeling overwhelmed and out of control. (Not to mention wasted time, space & money.)
A little organization can make a world of difference! Do your kids or husband constantly ask, "Where's the cereal, crackers, whatever"? Are you constantly out of things you need to prepare a meal? What if you could open your kitchen cabinets or pantry, take a look, and make a shopping list in less than 5 minutes? Now that's organized!
Or, how about these familiar scenes…Have you ever found 3 packages of opened brown sugar, all hard as a rock? Worse yet, you're ready to bake and there's no baking powder, ugh! Or here's my favorite, the cracker box with 2 stale crackers in the bottom!
Now if that's frustrating, how about BUGS!
id you know that most of the bugs you find in your cupboards and pantry hitchhiked home from the grocery store? Think about this: Where does the grocery actually store boxes, bags & bottles before they get to the shelves? That's right, a warehouse. And try as they might to keep things clean (they do don't they?), critters just happen in places like that. What's more, the glue used in food packaging is usually grain or starch-based, for safety's sake. Guess who just loves that? Bugs do, of course. They eat a little, drag their 6 little shoes through it, and even lay their eggs there! Do you REALLY want those boxes in your kitchen? If you do happen to bring home an infested product, if you put it in a Tupperware Modular Mate®, it will contain the pest and keep it from spreading into everything else.
Think of having your bulk & staple food organized into “centers” where you could find just what you need in an instant. Tupperware recommends 6 common centers for your kitchen.
Buying in bulk saves money. Knowing what you have on hand, saves time. Modular containers that fit YOUR cupboards, pantry, boat or RV, save space. That’s why I love Tupperware Modular Mates®! Here’s the good news: They’re on sale at 40% off until Feb.12, 2010!

Ok, does Chris have it all together or what? Modular Mates sound like they could help in the kitchen, bathroom, even in the garage where I have my shop set up. I could use those containers to divide up my different sized nails, screws, wall anchors, drill bits, hey; this Tupperware stuff can be exciting! I hope you get carried away like me and find all sorts of places to use Chris’s ideas!
