Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
Downsizing the containers that I use for some foodstuffs. At one time I baked a lot of bread, rolls, pizza dough, muffins, and more, but now I don't so much. I have large nesting Tupperware containers in a cupboard that are slowly being replaced by tall and much slimmer acrylic storage jars with robust silicone seals. I found three more of these jars at a thrift store ($2 each, vs about $15/$20 each at The Container Store) and this weekend will swap out some contents. I don't know if I'm ready to let go of those great Tupperware canisters yet, but I'll put the nested set into the pantry and think about it. I got rid of a lot of other Tupperware containers because I don't know what kind of plastic or chemicals are in them. These should probably go the same way. I have an antique Hoosier kitchen (also called a Kitchen Queen) that houses many of these jars, but right now the doors don't close. I aim to streamline the contents and clear the counter top.
