The only Tupperware parties I was ever at, they only had one big bowl up front, and it wasn't for sale - I guess they were all there to talk about cars, because everyone's keys were in the bowl.

Also, no one ever talked about buying or selling Tupperware, but there were a lot of private meetings at the party so I guess that's where all the deals went down.

Every day is a mom party at Target if you play your cards right.

Could I interest you ladies in some ICEES?  My treat.

Tupperware was a very flat organization with little talk of "over". If you wanted to make bank, you had to sell product. Invite your friends, dress in drag, show the good quality bits and pieces. Everyone remembers a jug that had a twist lid for orange juice. Dump the can in, twist one way for little pulp, the other way for lots of pulp.

Is that the party where everyone throws their room keys in a bowl?

I'm guessing a lot of the "side business" in-home sales things had already suffered because of online sales, and then, boom COVID. My wife used to have friends invite her for Pampered Chef, Cutco, Avon, and Mary Kay things at their homes. We have several things from Pampered Chef, and she succumbed to the Cutco sales, but it's been years since we've actually spent money on that stuff. The kitchen ware has mostly held up pretty well.

Ah pampered chef, I love the 30$ garlic crusher my ex used once.

I received the pizza stone, pizza cutter combo.  Love the pizza cutter, but the stone is too big.  It sits on its edge in the pantry.  Pampered chef folks must have enormous ovens.

Or, I'm poor, and have a tiny stove.

My wife bought our set of Cutco knives 20 years ago. Great knives and lifetime warranty and sharpening. The kids weren't allowed to use them because all they had to do was look at them funny and they'd start bleeding.

I got tired of sending them back for an annual sharpening and finally learned how to do it myself.

Tupperware really missed the mark on the products.  Molded pliable plastics.  How hard could have been to offer a line of dildos for those ladies who already had their salad savers?

My husband went to a Pampered Chef party once back when we were first dating. I don't remember how the hostess knew them, but it was an entire party of men who were in a darts league together. That woman made a killing at that sale. See, women get invited to those things all the time and end up buying small stuff like garlic presses and spatulas. Men though? They buy the big stuff.

That said, their omelette pan was high quality and we've used it for 25+ years.

We've have the pizza stone for a long time. Even our first oven was large enough. Preheat the oven with the stone in it and slide whatever pizza you are preparing on top of it.

We have several other things, but that gets the most use by far.

I don't care if the 70s/early-80s colors are ugly, I've got 40-year-old pieces of Tupperware that have held up better than 4-year-old Rubbermaid.  Most of what we had were in the same colors fridges used to come in: avacado, harvest gold, brown, and orange.
