30-Day Organize-athon | Day 18: Organize Your Storage Containers

30-Day Organize-athon 18

Welcome to the 30-Day Organize-athon!

In today’s 5 minutes we’re going to express-organize your storage containers.

Let’s get to it.

Day 18: Organize Your Tupperware and Storage Containers

Step 1: Empty out your stash of Tupperware and containers onto the floor

Step 2: Add any stray items that belong here but have migrated to other random household destinations.

Step 3: Quickly select the items that:

  • You use regularly; and
  • Have lids (if needed); and
  • Are in good condition.

Step 4: Store these neatly in the cupboard or drawer. Put smaller items into larger ones to save space, and put each little pile on top of its own collection of lids (that way your lids are always close to their respective containers ).

Step 5: Throw out everything else – anything gross, ancient, or surplus to your needs. You can put it aside for donation only if it’s really good.

And you’re done!

Got an Extra 5 Minutes?

Let’s simplify your kids’ lunchboxes and drink bottles.

  1. Discard anything they’ve outgrown.
  2. Discard anything that’s stained or smells funky.
  3. Discard anything that’s surplus to your needs – if you only need one set per child, let the rest go.
  4. Make a note to buy anything that you’re missing.

Now don’t buy more if you don’t need it!

    I love showing my pantry off to anyone who is interested – I am a Tupper-whore (an ex-demonstrator too) so everything is labelled, like is with like, it truly is a thing a great beauty!! Well, I think so anyway 😉

    I just did this a few weeks ago. I had a Tupperware party and got a whole lot of free stuff so I ditched the crappy cheap containers I had and replaced them with nice new Tupperware ones 🙂

    I was ahead of the game and had recently done this one so it was just a matter of checking to see that it was still organized and nothing that shouldn’t have been there had creeped in. It’s all good. Done!
