re: storage of tupperware lids. My solution is not to buy tupperware anymore. I used up what I had and started reusing cleaned out food containers (if they didn't contain meat). Yogurt, cottage cheese, parmesan cheese, vegetable clamshells, etc are all reusable and can be used to pack lunches then throw out at work in the recycling there. Works for potlucks as well when the host doesn't want to wash and return containers. I also reuse ziplock bags from sugar, deli cheeses, pantyhose, cotton squares, etc. Keeps the trash and plastic container storage way down.

Like you Hankin_pat, I reuse plastic that comes as packaging, as much as possible. I even save the plastic bags magazines come in to cover books. The best space saver and storage idea I have is to use chests, antique, modern, carved Kashmiri walnut and bamboo lined with wood and each chest is dedicated to one collection of objects. Like winter clothes, linen or bed linen, clothes to be mended or given away, etc. The other idea was to have a long shelf fitted into the kitchen wall between the upper and lower cupboards to hold all my spices.
