Just Reminding You All...

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

***I know. I know. It's a repost. But ladies. Seriously. JANUARY is tomorrow!! So this is a friendly reminder - because Tupperware Modular Mates are 40% off this month. And if you happen to live near me...well, you know it would probably thrill me to help you figure out your cupboards and make them all fit nice-like!***

Kitchen cupboards can be scary places, because sometimes you never know what might be lurking in the depths.

I speak this from experience and am referring to the time that I discovered all my leftover Easter candy (my hidden stash, mind you) was being devoured by a sneaky little "friend".

And he was rude enough to leave the wrappers behind to taunt me.

I had the opportunity to meet him face to face one evening when I opened up my cupboard. He didn't stick around for introductions and a few nights later he was evicted.

That incident, however, brought my cupboards to where I am today. The thought of little mouse feet scampering through my food and hard-earned candy pushed me into Tupperware Modular Mates. And before you click away, thinking "too EXPENSIVE!!" hear me out - cause I'm about to give you a lovely tip.

JANUARY means 40% off Modular Mates!! Specials galore - and it's definitely the time to buy them!! I've gotten mine in spurts over the years for both my cupboards and my freezer and LOVE them - because everything has a place (well, except the peanut butter and such).

To give you an idea of how the cupboards look, here are some pictures of my cupboards and my freezer (different containers in the freezer, but by Tupperware too).

Here's the nutshell of how they work: there are 5 sizes of containers, and they all work together in their sizes. For example, a #4 container is the same heighth as a #1 plus a #3 stacked on top of each other. That allows you to use different size containers based on the type of item you need to put inside. I have a few containers that contain a hodge-podge of things (chocolate chips, shortening, etcc) and have it labeled: Baking Things.

My freezer also has containers and it makes it SO much easier to find things (or direct others where to find them). My biggest suggestion would be - label everything you put into ziploc bags or containers. You might think you'll remember what it is, but a few months later you'll be staring at a mystery something-or-other and scratching your head. I've even gone so far as to label the shelves above my pull-out drawers in the freezer to remember what is in the drawers.

If you happen to live near me and want to take advantage of my sickness passion for organizing, let me know and I'll have fun measuring out your cupboards and will even find a labeler...I've done it before and I'd do it again!


  1. yep, that's EXACTLY what my freezer looks like! LoL! You go with your compulsive self girlfriend! I love it!!!!!

  2. are THOSE Hunter Green seals??? I won't get anymore until I can find more seals! Anyone want hot pink ones?

  3. I can testify! The woman has mad skills. And, since I'm such a good friend, I try to pretend to be unorganized so she can practice on my stuff. But I'm just pretending - for her sake. ;-)

  4. OH, oh ... Me, Me.

    Looking at my baking cupboard I need a second pair of eyes to figure this out. When do you want to come over? I'll make coffee and goodies. (The food offer is me being nice to you, hint, hint...wink, wink;)

  5. oh my - that is some serious OCD girl. just wait. have a few more kids and your cupboards will look like mine.
