There are two kinds of people in the world: those who store their plastic containers with the lids on top and those who save space by stacking all the bottoms together and piling the tops nearby. I am the former type and my mother was the latter. Her way, you are guaranteed not to be able to find the top that matches the bottom when you’re in a hurry. And not only that! The lids have a mysterious way of disappearing into the Land of Lost Socks when you separate them. My theory is that there are lid goblins who sneak in during the night to steal loose lids, but they are unable to take ones that are attached to their proper bottoms. Why? Who knows! Possibly their claws are not nimble enough to pry off the lids, or maybe it’s one of those arbitrary goblin rules. I leave the “why” to goblin experts. All I know is that with my method I do not have any lidless containers in my house.
