See if this Tupperware situation sounds familiar:  Lots of round lids. Too many square containers. No properly stored food. Total chaos.

Using Tupperware (and its other-brand brothers) is an easy way to keep leftovers organized, but only if key plastic pieces quit disappearing! Instead of blaming the kitchen elves, create a Tupperware organization system. That way, you’ll always have the right lid-container combination within arm’s reach.

Here are a few easy ways to control the mess:

1. Get Consistent

Nothing is worse than having ten circular lids when all you need is a square one! You may have to spend a little money up front to consolidate your Tupperware, but it’s easier to keep track of everything if they’re the same shape. Tip: While you’re at it, invest in Tupperware that’s mostly the same size. Mixing and matching will be way easier!

2. Nest and Contain

If you do decide to keep different sized containers around, nest the smaller ones inside the large ones! You’ll open up a ton of cabinet space and keep better track of your lids.

3. Collect Your Lids

If your lids keep disappearing, make a habit of putting them all in one large plastic bin or basket. Then stack your Tupperware bottoms next to the bin. Think of the bin as confined chaos. Next time you grab a Tupperware bottom, search through the bin for a lid that fits.

4. Be a Brand Snob 

We’re not suggesting that you only buy a certain brand – just keep them separate. By designating a different bin for each brand you own, it will be easier to find matches on the fly. So you’ll have a Gladware bin, a Tupperware bin, a Target-brand bin and so on.

5. Use a Big Pot

Do you have one oversized pot that gets used like once a year? Dust it off and use it to store your Tupperware! You’ll open up valuable cabinet space and keep all of your containers in one spot.
