    A pick-up just passed my house advertising Tupperware. I haven't heard that name in over 25 years. Apparently the company is displaying (and selling I guess) their products in the conference centre of a local hotel. Does anyone on here still use their products?

    I have quite a bit I've acquired over years. Some pieces were originally my Mom's, but they still work. Many are older than my marriage and work harder than my hubby. :ohmy:

    Oh, snap! :facepalm: I shouldn't say that. He's good now, but it was a big adjustment for him from being laid off, to reaching his intended retirement age, to moving on to retired life. A rough time for both of us. He has since resumed a much-loved avocation (astronomy) and has picked up a hobby (wood crafting).

    Yes, I have and I use a couple of plastic containers and I have to say they are great. But a colleague gave me them and she often goes to their meetings, I have never gone nor interested in doing so.

    Have a few pieces from ''the old days"....I'm sure quality is still the same but you can get cheaper versions that work just as well at Walmart,,etc..

    I think that is the thing - there used to be the one brand, but now there are plenty of cheaper versions. The tupperware party used to be a fun occasion. I think it was usurped by 'other' less innocent parties! :laugh:

    I still have quite a few pieces of Tupperware from the normal "square rounds" upwards and onwards, and they are used regularly. Some dates from 1959 when my sister held a Tupperware party just after she moved into her first house in Dagenham and my niece was not yet a year old. The last purchase I made from them was just a few years ago for some replacement lids. Tupperware is mainly sold online in the UK now but you can still hold a Tupperware party if you want to :laugh:

    I am given to understand that there are stranger folks at the "other less innocent parties!"

    Definitely. However, I do not invite strangers into our apartment ..

    There are too many lunatics on this planet on the loose !!!

    I deal with tons of people in my professional life, however, I would not invite 99% of them to my apartment ..

    Have a wonderful day ..

    The idea always was that you invite your friends and relatives to the party, and then hopefully some of them will have their own party and invite their own friends and relatives. Although I must admit that some friends can be pretty strange.....:D

    I used to buy a ton of the stuff years ago in the '70s!

    I would like to get a few large items for food storage. :wink:

    I have loads on plastic containers some of which are original Tupperware. They are hand me downs but are still going strong however nowadays I use the Lakeland square containers that are stackable and freezerproof. I have them all over the place left right and centre along with a few Ikea containers and a few cheaper ones which break easily.
    There is also a series of Sistema containers which are excellent and are rapidly becoming out favourite.
