My husband actually refuses to put the tupperware away. He hates it.

Firstly, he hates that the plastic stuff doesn’t dry in the dishwasher, then he hates that my storage system isn’t always that neat (thank you children!).

I’ve tried so many different ways to store it over the years.

I used to be very against storing it with the lids on. It grossed me out that the air could get trapped in there or a little moisture could get stuck.

If you’ve got the space though, it really is one of the best ways to keep the lids from wandering off or breeding.

You might also be interested in how I organised my pantry.

We have one big 2-shelf cupboard for our tupperware so I have the small containers with thier lids on in a big tub on the top shelf, glass containers with on lids next to them (I love the Decor Match Ups) then the larger containers on the bottom shelf.

I realise that’s not idea for everyone though and we’ll be after a new solution later in the year when we renovate our kitchen so I’ve put together a collection of 6 ideas to store tupperware.
