Something you may not know about me ...
I used to sell Tupperware.
Way back when my middle kid was still a baby and I needed a night out, I went to a friend's Tupperware party and came home a consultant.
Imagine my husband's surprise when I came home and announced my new career.
My friend was far more successful with Tupperware than I was. But I stuck it with long enough to be a manager. And I accumulated a ton of product.
I still have a lot of the plastic stuff around my house.
This is how I store my flour and sugar ...
Now don't get me wrong. I think Tupperware is a fine company. And they have great products.
I'm just not sure if I want my food in plastic anymore.
Some of my Tupperware has changed over the years. The colors are fading. The plastic gets all gross and gummy. I just wonder if any chemicals are leeching into my food.
I'm sure this is more of a concern if I heat things in the plastic containers. Which I try not to do anymore. But is it an issue with food storage?
I really don't know.
But I'm still converting all my pantry items into glass containers.
It just makes me feel better.
And it's way cuter ...
I know, yes, those are marshmallows. And yes, I'm on a super duper healthy eating lifestyle campaign. But marshmallows are a great treat and just a necessity of life. They make me happy. And I'm not going to hide it!
I stole the green topped container from my mom. It's pretty old and it used to hold coffee. Now it holds tea.
I found the rest at Target.
I'm sure you can tell one of these houses popcorn. The other one is full of raisins. Which my daddy grew, dried and stemmed for me. These are healthy snacks.
I need several more glass containers to convert everything out of the plastic.
But this is a start.
