Not sure what this says about me (other than that I'm a meticulously organized mom and project manager... duh!), but there you have it -- my, um... tidy little secret.
Other than canned goods, very little makes its way into my kitchen fully cloaked. In fact, I pretty much strip it all down the minute it gets past my front door.
Even my gadget drawer is dominated by Tupperware party freebies.
Would you believe that we even used to eat on plastic Tupperware plates, from when the kids were babies until... well, far too recently. I think it was only when they were in junior high that we finally moved to ceramic plates, primarily because we'd just gotten into the habit of using plastic square plates and didn't give it a second thought.
And I'm embarrassed to tell you that it's only been since they left home that we brought our favorite Dansk dishes (which were a wedding present!) into the "everyday" cabinet -- not because I didn't trust the kids not to break them, but because I'd hidden them in the "special occasions only" cabinet and totally forgotten about them!
Pretty pathetic, isn't it?
