Leftover Tupperware lids

What do you do with your mismatched Tupperware lids?

I took several from a yard sale FREE box, in hopes of finding mates for other free Tupperware. The rest I stored in a Ziploc for later. I needed a cover for this canteloupe, but Andrew had used all my plastic wrap for a diorama. To my surprise, the flexible Tupperware lid made an excellent fit!

Another good idea. I always take those extra tupperware lids too when I can find them. It is nice to have spares. Thanks for the blog. Roxie

Grin--I cover my half-melons with those shower-cap plastic things from the dollar store.

Nifty use of what you had on hand!

You actually have leftover fruit? I'm stunned! I'm not sure that sort of thing would ever happen with my big crew! ;)

I told my husband about your idea of using the tupperware lid, He, the engineer said, Why not just turn the melon up-side down on a plate? The plate will catch any juice that runs out...and seal the melon at the same time. Gotta love that mind...Roxie

Mama Squirrel, I love those shower caps. Last I looked, Andrew had taken mine for a costume project.

I don't think I've told you how much your upbeat comments brighten my day! Thank you for taking the time to comment here so often.

Your husband is clearly an engineer! Now, if he can only figure out a way for my salad plates to fit into the fruit drawer, I'll be set!
