Wow Scully........you get an "A++" for presentation......pictures and all!
I have the large measuring bowl from Tupperware and also the smaller one. Aren't they great?! One year for Christmas, I purchased the large bowl, filled it w/a sac of wildrice pancake mix and a bottle of real maple syrup. Was a neat gift I have to admit!
I have a few of the tupperware storage containers, but my favorite has to be my clear glass, old fashioned looking square containers w/the metal screw on lid. Very nostalgic looking! If I could, I would have a very old fashioned looking kitchen!
Speaking of tupperware............almost embarrassed to admit this BUT...
I frequent our local Goodwill store. We have a huge (I mean HUGE) distribution center here in Duluth. You can spend all day in there and still not see everything. Anyway, they have a bunch of bins w/tupperware in it...for the low low priceo of [email protected]! Can you believe it?! I search for the "like new" stuff.....I have gotten tupperware that looks like it is new-never used!
Also, thrift stores are great for buying canning jars! I can alot (let me stress ALOT) and am always picking up new jars. Usually I buy them at Walmart and spend anywhere between $7-12 depending on the size. Our Goodwill sells them for [email protected]! Many need to be cleaned up-but you sterilize them first anyway! My last visit I purchased 200 pint and quart size jars! Two shopping carts full! LOL
