Charissa is a SAHM of a toddler and preschooler who has been selling Tupperware for 3 years. She offered to share with us the many ways that Tupperware can save you money and she also offered a $25 gift certificate to a lucky reader! Thanks Charissa 🙂
My absolute favorite way that Tupperware helps me save money (and time) is with their microwave containers. More specifically, the Vent N Serve products. The lid on the older version (Rock N Serve) had a vent that was “rocked” back to open. The lid on the updated version has a vent that is lifted to open. Vent N Serve products go from the freezer to the microwave and have a variety of sizes. I use mine ALL THE TIME to store extra portions of food (jambalaya, spaghetti, chili, fried rice, really anything) or even “meal starters” (enchilada sauce, spaghetti sauce, burrito fillings, or stroganoff sauce). On those days when I don’t feel like cooking, I can turn to the freezer for an already prepared meal or a “meal starter” for which I need little effort to make a meal. This saves money because I am less tempted to go out to eat or have food delivered. And, with a little extra planning around the grocery store sales flyer, I can stock up on ingredients needed for extra portions and really save money in the end. Also, when I was working I would take leftovers to work for a quick and cheap lunch. I also do a lot of cooking in the microwave with their other products (such as meatloaf, potatoes, chicken, cake, lasagna, and more) which is great for saving money on gas for the oven or stove, not to mention keeping the house cooler in the summer!
Other ways Tupperware can help you save money include:
- Use bowls (Wonderlier, Flat Out, Stuffables, Impressions, and more) to store leftovers of all sizes and to take to potlucks to save on zip top bags and aluminum trays.
- Use microfiber items (Dishcloth, Kitchen Towel, Window Mirror Cloth, Dust Mitt) when cleaning to reduce the amount of paper towels and cleaning products needed.
- Use the Quick Shake to make your own salad dressings and instant pudding cheaper than the premade convenience versions.
- Use the Snack Cups (4 ounces) and Ideal Lil Bowls (8 ounces) for a variety of things- store small quantities of snacks for any family member (great for portion control), make your own jello or pudding cups and save on buying zip top bags and premade convenience items.
- Use the Quick Chef (hand-powered chopper) to make your own salsa (super easy recipe uses 1 can of diced tomatoes, onion, garlic, cilantro, seasonings). You can also make guacamole, pesto sauce, real whipped cream, even soft serve ice cream (and more). You can also use it to chop up vegetables into tiny pieces to add as filler in ground beef recipes to minimize the amount of ground beef needed in things like meatballs, hamburger, or meatloaf.
- Use FridgeSmart containers to extend the life of fresh produce. The vent system for the different types of produce minimizes the amount of fresh produce that gets thrown away by keeping it fresher longer.
- Use the Fridge Stackable containers to store deli meats, cheeses, and more to eliminate using plastic bags for those deli meats that do not come in a re-sealing bag. As a bonus, the three tiers make a great breading station for frying foods.
- Use Forget Me Not containers to keep onions, tomatoes, citrus, and cheese in view so they do not get lost in the refrigerator. The containers hang off the side of the shelves and help eliminate wasted money from having to throw the food away.
- Use the Sandwich Keepers to keep regular sized sandwiches or chips (both easily smashed in a lunch box) safe until lunch time.
- Use the children’s line of products featuring characters like Mickey Mouse, Tinkerbell, Disney Princesses, Sponge Bob Squarepants, and Dora the Explorer. There are cups, snack containers, sandwich keepers, and more to reduce the amount of disposable items needed for picnics, outings, and school lunches.
- Use Modular Mates containers to store practically anything. They come in a wide variety of sizes and keeps bugs and humidity out. The containers are versatile and now are clear to provide easy view of the contents.
- Use Ice Tups Set to make your own popsicles, fudge bars, yogurt bars, fruit smoothie bars, and more! A healthier and cheaper option than buying from the frozen section at the grocery store.
- Use pitchers (2 quart. Impressions Pitcher or 1 gallon Classic Pitcher) to make your own juice cheaper than buying bottles or cartons of juice. Also great for keeping cold water on hand.
- Use cups (Impressions 11 ounce or 16 ounce Tumblers, Insulated 24 ounce Tumbler , Commuter Mug, Small or Large Sports Bottles) to bring hot or cold drinks on the go with you. Minimize the number of water bottles and coffee cups needed while out and about.
