Organise your Tupperware
If your Tupperware drawer or cupboard is looking like it got hit by a tornado, time to get organised.
If your Tupperware drawer is out of control, time to insert some drawer dividers to make it easier to find what you need. It's easy enough to make your own drawer dividers using hardboard or Masonite/evowood, or look around the home to see what you have that can be repurposed for this use.
An even easier alternative to making drawer dividers is to cut a piece of pegboard to fit the base of your drawer. Secure wooden pegs through the board to hold in place. You will find instructions for this project on BuzzFeed.
If you and your hubby are handy with power tools, you'll love this easy way to organise your cupboards. Replace fixed or adjustable shelves with pullout drawers that can be easily accessed and are large enough to store all your Tupperware containers and lids neatly in one place.
Pop into your nearest Gelmar store and buy a couple of ball bearing drawer runners, and while you're there, check out the range of storage accessories they offer for smart organisation in the modern kitchen. Too see what's new and on special offer visit the Gelmar website.
Just in case you want to make your own pullout storage shelf, we give you step-by-step instructions here. Bear in mind that, since not all cupboards are the same size, you will need to measure up and work out the size you need.
While you're shopping at Gelmar, you might want to take a look at their wire baskets and see how these can be fitted to existing cupboards for extra storage and an organised way to keep all your Tupperware contained. You can easily fit one or two storage baskets to your kitchen cupboards to make life easier.
If you still have an old CD rack lying around gathering dust, remove the CD dividers and pop these into a drawer to help corral all your Tupperware lids.
Sometimes all it takes is a little creative thinking to get your cupboards organised. If you already have a space set aside for all your plastic ware or Tupperware containers, give some thought as to how this can be better managed so that you don't end up with mismatched lids and containers tossed everywhere.
