However, there is another use that I like using it for, organizaion and storage of non-food items. I was walking my children down to school on the same day that garbage was put on the curb. I noticed a plastic container that was flimsy and broken. It was on it's way to a landfill, and would remain there for awhile. I could tell it was a new plastic container by the design, and they didn't get a lot of use out of it. Re-using items such at Tupperware can help keep newer items out of landfills.
Tupperware was well made, solid plastic. I bought a box at an auction I attended, and some of it was in poor condition/scratched. However, I do have a work area downstairs, and one contaner holds my papers and thank you cards, one one my tape, and I re-used a cup for my pens. It doesn't matter what it looks like, it gets the job done.
Kids areas are another area that could always use some organization, the containers work well for cars or crayons. They were also made such bright colors, so they add a bit of style and uniqueness to a shelf. I realize that Tupperware won't suit all your storage needs, due to the smaller sizes, but if you have a craft area or smaller items that do need organizing, think Tupperware.
