No organisation, stored in a deep (40cm deep) kitchen drawer…which is possibly the worst place to keep them as one has to sometimes empty the draw to find the exact container one is after.
Split between two drawers. Generally there is lids in one and containers in the other.
Yes. But, while there are missing lids the lids fit multiple volume containers so we keep the containers just in case that particular size is needed. Just means we can’t use all the containers at once as we don’t have enough lids to fit all.
If the container has a unique lid and there are none that fit, we repurpose the containers depending on their size. It may be to hold salt/pepper shakers or sauce bottles in the pantry, in the garden etc.
Did this recently. mainly because we moved and did a general clean out of ones which had cracks, had microwave damage (from food superheating and melting surface of the plastic) or no longer used (e.g. reusable takeaway containers).
If any could be recycled, they were placed in the kerbside recycling bin. One needs to check with their local council/recycling collection company to see if they accept such containers.
Never do…unless they are damaged beyond any functional use.
Tupperware does tend to last a very long time. My Tupperware lunchbox which still works perfectly is about 35 years old. Other Tupperware is also long lasting as well. Advantage of Tupperware is if it fails, one can get it replaced under its lifetime warranty. Just need to find a Tupperware seller to do this with (they are becoming harder to find).
