Top 5 Rubbermaid Stackable Tupperware

Top 5 Rubbermaid Stackable Tupperware

Are you looking to save some space using Rubbermaid stackable Tupperware?  I know the feeling.  We have a small house where kitchen space is very limited, so limited in fact we had to turn our coat closet into a pantry.  Living in a small kitchen with little to no storage space, taking advantage of every inch is not only necessary but is an art.

For me the art of saving space began during my boot camp days in the Navy.

One of the tasks that we were given was to be able to fit all my belongings into one green duffle bag.  If you did not fold your shirts, socks and clothes in just the right way, taking advantage of every little bit of space, you would not be able to get everything in.  I learned quickly how to fold, stack and squish everything into place, almost completely wrinkle free.

That was 20 years ago and those lessons learned during those valuable training days I will take throughout the rest of my life.   The same skills and mindset I apply toward my limited kitchen space.

In this review article we cover the top five stackable Rubbermaid containers.
