We had two kinds of tacos tonight: normal beef and grilled shrimp.

Looking good, Norm. I like the way you use the Tupperware for all your toppings.....I had one of those but someone at my house put it on a hot burner just one time ~ well, you can guess why I don't have it anymore.

The shrimp tacos look really, really tasty!

I saw a non Tupperware clone of that thing at the grocery store a while back. I can't remember how long I've had that one.

Years ago I worked at a Tupperware distributorship, where all the dealers go to get their product and have meetings. As an employee, I was allowed to purchase any Tupperware at dealer cost, including the 'party favors'. Now I find out that some of the guest gifts are 'collectable' and worth big bucks ~ I wish I had bought handfuls of some of them.

Tina was a tupperware lady / rep.
She got her two suitcases of demo stuff....had the required 7 parties, all just to keep the demo stuff and keychains etc. Then she quit! tongue TWICE!!!

Out here in SoCal, there was this gay man who dressed up in drag and held Tupperware parties. He was absolutely outrageous in his comments and humor. He got so good that people actually had to book him months in advance and guarantee a certain amount of sales. He ended up being one of the top sales persons of all time. Raked in a six figure salary. I am not sure what happened to him. For some reason I think he went on to bigger and better things. Wish I could have seen him in action. I did see a picture of him dressed up. He had the ladies rolling on the floor.

What a great idea for having an edge for a home party. I'm sure I would have bought extra from him!  I used that tray/dish basically as a salad bar for years when my children were small.  Great product, as all Tupperware is.  And no, I don't sell it, have never sold it.

There is good money to be made, or, I should say, there was in the 1970's....I don't think it's near what it use to be. But I know some of our dealers were pulling in $50k, got a company car, won vacations & other great prizes. But it was more than a full time job and they usually had a bunch of children at home who were responsible for breaking down the orders for delivery to the party hostess'.

I was just happy to be able to buy the little Wonderlier Bowl Key Chains for 2 cents. I still have my 2 cent orange peeler. The party favors were the best! LOL

No, he/she isn't the one. Your lady/man was from Long Island. I will look and see if I can find a video.

I have a Tupperware lettuce keeper that keeps a head of lettuce fresh a lot longer than any other way I know of. It had an insert that went in the center of the head when you removed the core and kept it elevated above the bottom that I've lost. Cassie bought another one at a garage sale so she would have one after they moved out... when they thought they would move out some day. Now I put a wad of paper towel in the bottom of it when I have lettuce in it.

I guess hot dogs for supper. Tina is down S. Jersey at the farm house with her brother, cleaning out stuff to sell the house. All that just so the State can take the money ( Medicaid ), and so her uncle gets to stay in the nursing home for life.

We have that one too, with the insert missing also.
I like the green celery / bread keeper. We have that, but cannot find the top.

And the funniest one, is the Ham Taker. We have two, and they are great for like turkey leftovers or that ham that doesn't fit into anything else..

I generally don't like plastic thing in the refrigerator because i figure if I can't see what's in it, I won't use it and just end up throwing it away but Tupperware is often specialized to the point that I know what is in it just by the shape. It also keeps stuff better than regular plastic things from Walmart.

Those tupperware tall tumblers with tops are great. I have two that I hide; because I keep green onions about 6 inch long in them, and in a little water, they stay fresh longer.

I now keep my green onions in a jar on my counter with some water. The things keep growing and I have to trim them. They also stay fresh for a long time. I use Tupperware modular mates for my flour and sugar. I have had them for 20 years. I won't have anything else. When I see one at a garage sale I always buy it.

That one is good too,  but the Aunt Barbara is my favourite!

Norm, if you contact a Tupperware dealer (you should be able to find one in your area) you can order just the insert for your lettuce keeper.  You don't have to have a party.  You don't have to buy the whole three piece set (seal, bowl & insert).  Tupperware is guaranteed for life so if you have anything that is cracked, etc. they will replace it with the same or will replace with a similar item if yours is discontinued.

I found this one on ebay:

Quite often around here, you'll find a Tupperware dealer at a craft show.  That way you can get a couple of pieces and don't have to bother with a party.

I put one on ebay on my watch list and will look into finding a local tupperware dealer.

Funny thing was when I worked at the Tupperware distributorship.....I couldn't stand to drink out of the coffee cups or glasses. Most of the time I just said I preferred to drink my Pepsi out of the can ~ but once in a while someone would say something and I'd admit that I didn't use anything but the food storage containers.

But my favorite was the Kid's Baking Set.....all those little miniature tools. My girls loved it!
