Dear women on twitter: why does my wife feel compelled to save every freaking sour cream and cool whip container?
Because they make excellent storage compartments and are less expensive than re-buying same size storage.
To put Thanksgiving leftovers in? :)
my mom does it too. they're perfect for storing arts & crafts. apparently.
you got a good one there buddy! Keep her. Mine throws them away and buys fancy containers
I feel your pain man... I feel your pain. My wife does the same thing.
You always think you need extra storage. Maybe, she's a hoarder
I'm male and I do that! Reuse jars, too. It's called "being frugal"
Somewhere an idea light bulb just went on at A&E
They're great for leftovers, and you can give others food in them and not worry about losing the container.
that is a bad habit- get her a nice set of see thru assorted sizes
Because we're recycling by using them for storage containers for leftovers and it's cheaper than buying containers
because she's southern and it's what we do!! We use them for people to take leftovers home in instead of our good stuff
because we have need to be able to send people away with left overs and to make sure we have storage materials #livinthedream
We Southern women were the green movement before there was a green movement. We conserve everything.
I'm not a woman, but have you priced real Tupperware? Hush.
Thanksgiving is on Thursday - perfect size for LEFTOVERS!
It's like free tupperware. We love free stuff!

Would you rather she go to every Tupperware party?
You can never have too many containers.
For Thanksgiving leftovers, of course!
Thats a smart woman. Reusing equals saved money from not buying storage containers.
lol the old cliche "reduce, re-use, and recycle" thanks to my kids ICarly show this catch phrase will remain w/ me forever. :-)
I got mine a big set of Tupperware plastic containers and she still does it
same here. It's not like I don't buy tupperware.
Because it is cheaper than buying Tupperware which will eventually get left at the office/school/pot luck. Love her frugality.
think im gonna stop and just buy butter. Might be cheaper
DUH, free Tupperware that we don't care if you leave in your work fridge till it cures cancer! #winning
free Tupperware baby. Desperate times, desperate measures.

Because SOMEDAY they will come in handy. I just threw a ton away.
haha! 8 hours later, I say it goes back to the Grandparents' teaching us to save EVERYTHING.
