Sippy Cup Corral

Hate your Tupperware drawer/cabinet/etc?

Me too.

Do your kids delight in dumping your initially organized stack of plastic ware?

Me too.

Unite my fellow parents!

The night is OURS!!!!!!!

No more will we spend our evenings picking up and stacking plastic do-hickies.

We will RECLAIM our floor space and party if we want to!

Okay, maybe that's drastic, the kids are gunna dump the Tupperware, and they (we) are gunna spend some amount of time picking it up.


By simply using a loose basket, cleanup is quicker and easier.

Make sure to get a (durable) basket that will fit IN your cabinet, or somewhere reasonable that's also easily in reach of our babes- cuz, let's face it, it's a safe way for our kids to play and learn in the kitchen!

Send the children away with the basket and tell them to "Recover the bounty"!
*Warning* this does make it particularly easy to "dump" the contents, but I see that as one con in a whole stack of pros...

All you have to do is throw the cups and lids from the dishwasher into the basket and slide the basket in the cabinet! I have to admit my son has been known to take it upon himself to unload the things he knows belong in the green basket.

I will also admit to you that it is very easy to send Boomba to get a cup and lid himself. Ahhh he's such a big boy!

Hey- another play/learn experience. SCORE!


  1. Ha! That made me laugh out loud! My one year old is very guilty of dumping out all our Tupperware and covering the floor with it and occasionally hiding some things as well. Just what is the fascination with Tupperware anyway?
    I came across your site on the Circle of Mom's top 25 Food Allergy Mom Blogs. It's given me the idea to start a blog hop for allergies, asthma and eczema - parents or adults dealing with the condition. Please check out the page here and add a comment if you'd like to join. Thanks!


  2. Great! That's a lovely idea, thank you for asking me to join your blog hop.
    I commented already: I'm in!

    Thanks for stopping by, I hope you continue to keep tabs on me :-)
