Leftovers would be lonely without Earl Tupper's genius plastic food container invention. This "why didn't I think of that" idea earned Earl an early retirement in 1958 selling the company for 16 million dollars. Although the product was a hit, it was nothing compared to the success of Tupperware Parties. This inventive post-war marketing model was designed for housewives who had recently moved into a new community. There was no better way to catch up on town talk & get to know the neighbors.
p.s. This post was inspired by cleaning out my fridge today.
p.s.s. I will post the Apple Cider Cupcake recipe tomorrow. Too tired tonight...zzzzz
