Ship Shape: Organizing Tupperware

When organizing your Tupperware it can sometimes seem like it’s an uncontrollable mess. It can either be a mess, or you end up using to much cabinet space when you put lids on all of them.  I’ve had many ask me how I’ve organized mine, so here it goes. 

I don’t have much Tupperware, but you can still use my example. All of my melamine plates I store in the same cabinet. The larger Tupperware, I do keep those lids on. As you can see to the far left on the bottom I keep the round bowls, and next to that I keep the round lids. To the right I keep all the squared ones  & right next to them I keep the squared lids..

One thing to do before organizing them is to go through all of the items & make sure that each bowl has a lid to them. Sometimes you might have one get smashed, & you wined up throwing it away, but then you’ll have an extra lid. I keep mine in baskets so that they don’t fall all over the place. They tend to just get thrown in the cabinet, & then it gets out of control.

I realize I don’t have a whole lot of plasticware because I don’t have a lot of cabinet space, but the concept will still work even if you have a lot.

I still plan to put labeled tags on the baskets, but I just haven’t gotten around it. It will help my kids out when it’s their turn to unload the dishwasher.

Here’s another full size picture.

Does this help give you another option for organizing your plasticware?  Do you think you’ll try it?

  1. […] Wire baskets are an excellent choice for organizing lids and their corresponding containers because you can easily see what’s inside. Keeping lids separate from the containers makes it easier to keep both organized (similar shapes with similar shapes = more efficient storage). {image via: Raquel English} […]
