1 Set of Modular Mates to Solve Your Organisation Woes
There is nothing better than a modular system to organize your kitchen. Modular mates come in a variety of sizes and shapes that help you store your everyday kitchen staples. They help you reduce waste & organize your pantry while making it easier for you to scan through the items. Although modular mates come both in plastic and glass variants; the former is durable, resilient, light weight and cost-effective. It could be daunting to start your pantry organisation all over from scratch especially when you are living on a tight budget. Tupperware offers all-in-one solution with its Modular Mates Essential Set. Helping you plan and begin your pantry organization, this essential set is all your kitchen needs.
Step 1: How to Choose Best Modular Mates for my Pantry?
Before you begin you must measure your pantry space as it is the primary deciding factor when choosing modular mates. The length of your pantry will determine the number of modular mates that it can accommodate while the height will decide how many modular mates can stack up over each other. Whereas width or depth help you choose the best shape of your containers.
Since modular mates work on stacking, they are designed to save storage space by stacking up over each other. Tupperware modular mates are available in 4 shapes i.e. oval, super oval (long) square, and rectangular. The size of your pantry will help you determine which shape will fit your needs better. Square and oval shapes are designed to maximize the storage space of shallow shelves whereas rectangular and super oval are ideal for standard size of pantry that is 12” deep.
Another factor that you must consider when choosing modular mates for your pantry is how you are going to use it. If you love scooping out the contents then you need square/rectangular modular mates. If you are going to pour out, then you definitely need ovals and super ovals. Both ovals and super ovals come with pour-all seals sold separately featuring a flip top opening for easy pouring.
Step 2: How to Decide What to Store in Modular Mates?
Tupperware modular mates are designed to store and keeping your surplus staple dry food items fresh longer. For instance; beans and legumes, flours, sugar & cereals to name a few. Dry food items that are single use do not need to be stored in modular mates as you can keep them in their original packaging until you use it in one go. The best examples are cake mix boxes. Modular mates are virtually air tight so you won’t be throwing your pasta or cereals again because of them going stale. This kind of organisation also keep moths, critters and bugs away.
Keep your flours in square/rectangular modular mates as they are usually scooped out whereas super ovals are a great option for spaghetti and vermicelli.
Step 3: Color Code with Modular Mates
Tupperware Modular Mates Essential Set come with black and red seals. Although choosing a color is your personal preference, you can take advantage of the two colors by color coding your pantry. If someone in your home has food allergies then the red/black seals come handy. Keep your gluten free food in red modular mates to easily distinguish between the two types of flours that usually sit in your pantry.
Besides square/rectangular and oval, Tupperware containers also boast round canisters that are purposefully functional when it comes to organizing counter space. Round containers look aesthetically more appealing when serving food on the table.
