Sorting Day

Today was sorting day. No, I wasn’t at Hogwarts and no sorting hat was involved… though maybe a hat would have made it more festive. (Doubt it!) No, it was the day the plastic containers and lids were finally so out of control I couldn’t ignore them any more. I have a tub I keep them in so they won’t take over the whole kitchen, and so they‘ll be reasonably handy for stashing leftovers away or packing a lunch (not as many of those since I’ve been working at home most days- that’s about to change as we begin a phased-in return to school October 5). Still, it had gotten to the point I needed to sort through what seemed like dozens of pieces to find a container and lid that matched every time I needed one. I really don’t get how that happens- I always use them in matched pairs- so how do they become so disorderly? Oh, well, for now they are back in order, and I’m hoping once again they’ll stay that way. But probably not…

  1. This is such a universal mystery!🤷🏼‍♀️How does this happen? I resorted to buying glass bowls/containers that I store with the lids on! Blessings on your start phasing back to in person learning.

    I need a sorting day for just this kind of thing! And how do I have so many tiny containers that won’t fit actual food? I hope everything goes well with the return to school!

    Hannah, our oldest, is a master at Sorting. Our “container shelf” is contained because of her!

  4. I had the same problem with overwhelming plastic containers. It was by accident that I discovered the lids snap together and the containers stack well within one-another. I’m still amazed!
