Tupperware — who doesn’t have this in their home? It’s useful, washable, reusable, and economical. It comes in handy when it comes to storage and organization. However, when they get out of hand, we don’t really know how to organize Tupperware!
That’s the irony of it all, isn’t it? You buy something to organize only to end up cluttered. It’s like Tupperware organization is a different skill! Don’t worry. Here are some Tupperware organization ideas to make sure everything is in order.
Turn a large tub into an organizing Tupperware drawer
Try buying a big plastic tub in the nearest dollar store.
Get one that matches your cabinet size. Place it inside and stack your Tupperware away. It can be slid in and out, which makes it a perfect replacement for a drawer.
Using an under-shelf space saver
Did you know that you can also use the area underneath your shelf? That’s possible but only with an under-shelf space saver. This can be utilized as a lid organizer.
How to organize Tupperware? Start by decluttering
Before organizing your Tupperware and other food containers, make sure that you do your basic de-cluttering first.
One way on how to organize glass Tupperware is to separate glass containers from plastic ones and identify the ones with lids and those without. That way, you would know which ones to stack together.
Containers without lids may either be thrown away or re-purposed. But, the main point is that all Tupperware in your kitchen cabinet used for the purpose of containing food should have matching lids. Otherwise, they should be placed in a separate place in your home.
Recycle a magazine rack as a lid collector
Are your lids out of control? Organize them with a simple hack that also re-purposes unused magazine racks or file holders.
Just screw the rack on the inside of your cabinet door so you can easily find lids whenever you need them.
This dollar store idea for your lids
Here’s another useful hack you can use in storing your Tupperware lids and it’s totally affordable. Just buy a plastic basket and a cooling rack from the nearest dollar store.
Place the rack on top of the bin and there you have it, a D-I-Y lid organizer!
Adding a pegboard in your drawers
Another clever way to store your Tupperware is by adding a peg board inside your drawers. You can either buy a ready-for-use peg board or you can make your own thru simple hardware store materials.
Try a pull-out organizer
A pull-out organizer is also a nice way to organize Tupperware. Choose one that has dividers and pegs so you can stay on top of things and easily find your Tupperware in just one look.
Purchase a lid organizer
Some people would like to be straightforward in handling organization tasks. If you are one of those people and you are looking for a lid organizer, you can actually buy one online!
Using removable wire drawers
Adding drawers inside cupboard is a great way to make organizing easier, not just when it comes to Tupperware.
If you can’t find plastic sliding drawers, you can actually use wire drawers that are removable and easier to clean.
Repurposing CD racks.
Do you have old CD racks at home but no CD to put into? Why note re-purpose them as organizers for your Tupperware lids? They can hold different sizes of lids and they can be placed inside drawers, too.
Making use of drawer dividers.
Drawers are more clutter-free if we will keep everything in steady order. Dividers can help you in achieving a more optimized drawer that will also lead to more organization and less clutter.
For your Tupperware storage, make sure to have the right size and placements of dividers so you can fully utilize the space.
Using a mesh basket as an organizer.
Mesh baskets are also great organizers, not just for school supplies or bathroom supplies. You can also get one to organize your Tupperware and other food containers.
Learning how to organize Tupperware may seem like an absurd idea. Who needs to organize an organizer, right? But if you want to keep your home completely void of clutter, a little tidying up of some storage containers would make a lot of difference.
