A while back I gave my pantry a makeover. With the addition of the Thermomix in the kitchen, my pantry underwent a change. There were a lot less cans and processed foods and a whole lot more basic ingredients. I desperately needed more storage containers and I was just not prepared to drop a grand on Tupperware to house it. As I hate to miss-match, the Tupperware I did own, came out of the pantry and went into storage.
Looking at the Tupperware taking up space in my storage cupboard today, I decided I had to make use of it. I went to my most hated storage solution, the kids’ craft tub and decided that Tupperware might just save the day.
The old craft tub was huge and filled with a million bits and pieces. The half empty packets and the buttons and beads laying loose made finding what I needed a challenge.
After a good purge and some help from the littlies to sort, we filled most of my spare Tupperware containers.
If our little collection of craft supplies should exceed our Tupperware collection, I will just pick up the super cheap knock-off version you can get in Kmart.
I love that I regained some space and made good use of the once wasted Tupperware. I think that craft time will be a lot less painful with this storage solution.
