This is what I heard from my husband upon opening our tupperware cabinet and seeing it look amuck. As one can see depicted above, my husband decided that after being a doll and doing the dishes, this was the most effective way to put them away. I don’t know if the picture does it justice, but, there were lids with no tubs, tubs next to no lids and some were completely upside down. Upon being asked he replied, “What does it matter?!” The next time you need tupperware, it’s there, who cares if it’s organized!?”
I shouldn’t be surprised. My husband is a man that, when a bachelor, used to never put his clothes away. He would do a load of laundry and then just keep all the clothes in the dryer. Once worn, he would throw them in the washer. When the dryer was empty he started the washer and thus the cycle continued. Arguably, this is efficient, but quite honestly, the laziest thing ever.
I suppose it is this same logic that causes our tupperware to look as it does. I tried to let it go. I tried to go a whole week and let the tupperware remain as is, because I did see his point a bit, what does it really matter? Fast forward two days later and in an attempt to find a container for leftover spaghetti I am hit in the head with not one but two random lids that were wedged under a plastic bowl. That is when I decided it DOES matter. Organization is important, at least it is to me and I am in charge of the kitchen. So organize I did, spending all of five minutes and producing this result:
The next time my husband opened up the cabinet he just laughed, asking me how much time I wasted on such a trivial task. I simply replied to his snarky comment, “what does it matter?”
