Consultants Driving Company’s Growth
Fueling that growth is the Tupperware Opportunity.
Thousands of women and men in North America looking for a source of income aren’t waiting for government bailouts to take effect. Instead, they’re taking charge of their futures and starting their own Tupperware businesses.
A FUN, CONTEMPORARY PARTY
The Tupperware party and the Tupperware Opportunity are
lauded by many of today's hottest celebrities, including Mariska Hargitay, Tori Spelling and Ice-T. “The party today is really a girl's night out,” said Goings during a recent interview
with the Orlando Sentinel. “It's women getting together. It is interactive. They have a lot of fun.
“And...you've got...a compensation program that makes people say, ‘Hey, I can earn great money holding these parties and building my own sales organization.’ There is a party starting
every two and a half seconds.”
EXCITING PRODUCTS TO SHARE
Besides updated classics, Tupperware now offers cookware and kitchen gadgets, teas and related products, interactive children’s toys, and on-the-go food storage options. “Our focus is on saving people time and money and helping them live healthier lives,” said Kanwar S. Bhutani, president, Tupperware U.S. and Canada.
Multiple Avenues to Success
While the home party continues to be the heart of the business model, Tupperware Consultants also sell through their own personalized Web sites. A Web site promotes a Tupperware consultant’s business and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. And, there are no geographic boundaries for selling or encouraging other people to start their own home-based businesses.
Savvy Tupperware Consultants also find financial success and personal satisfaction in helping other people—and their families—achieve their goals. Tupperware Consultants are reaching out to others in search of more income, work-life balance and greater flexibility, and welcoming them as they open their own home-based businesses.
TOP-NOTCH CORPORATE REPUTATION
That focus was recognized this year when Forbes magazine included Tupperware Brands Corporation. on its “Most Admired Companies” list. Tupperware was ranked No. 2 in the
Household Products category.
NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED - LEARN MORE
Tupperware Sales ForceMembers enjoy meeting with potential new Consultants, answering questions about becoming a Tupperware Consultant and taking applicants through the easy steps to starting their very own business, Bhutani said. He suggested that people interested in learning more contact their Tupperware Consultant.

The company also should do well in 2009, he said. In fact, women and men across North America are turning to Tupperware for a lucrative earning opportunity during these stressful economic times.
COMPANYOFFERS SPECIAL SAVINGS FOR NEW SELLERS
To support new Consultants as they start their businesses, Tupperware is offering a special incentive. When a new Consultant achieves $500 or more in personal sales during their first 30 days in business, they qualify to save 60%on the purchase of their choice of two sets-the Vent 'N Serve™ 5 Pc. Large Set or the Modular Mates® Starter System Set.
Outlook Bright With Tupperware
Orlando, FL—Tupperware is a bright spot on the economic landscape, even in today’s tough business climate. "We are pleased to report another strong quarter of sales growth," said Rick Goings, chairman and chief executive officer of Tupperware Brands Corp., when the company released its third quarter 2008 earnings.

Let's start with the pastry. It was suggested that we use a 15 oz. package of refrigerated piecrust or packaged empanada dough, but I just can't bring myself to use processed foods. I found a recipe on Epicurious that had been review by several people and given a great rating, so I decided to use it. I made it in my Quick Chef and was really pleased with the results, but I will provide the original recipe for you just in case you haven't gotten your Quick Chef yet.
Both the dough and the filling makes enough for 12 pastries. Try them with savoury fillings too.
2 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 stick (1/2 cup) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 large egg
1/3 cup ice water
1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar
Sift flour with salt into a large bowl and blend in butter with your fingertips or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal with some (roughly pea-size) butter lumps.
Beat together egg, water, and vinegar in a small bowl with a fork. Add to flour mixture, stirring with fork until just incorporated. (Mixture will look shaggy.)
Turn out mixture onto a lightly floured surface and gather together, then knead gently with heel of your hand once or twice, just enough to bring dough together. Form dough into a flat rectangle and chill, wrapped in plastic wrap, at least 1 hour.
Apple Cinnamon Filling
4 apples peeled and cored
(or a 21 oz. can of sliced apples, drained)
1 lemon (use juice and zest)
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. Simple Indulgence Cinnamon & Vanilla Seasoning Blend
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp. butter
1/4 cup raisins
Place apples in Quick Chef (Ok, now you need the Quick Chef!)with blade attachment. Add remaining ingredients, cover and process until coarsely chopped. Melt butter over medium heat in Chef Series 9-1/2" Nonstick Fry Pan. Add apples and stir to coat. Lower heat and cook apple mixture 5 minutes until soft. Add raisins and cook until mixture has thickened. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Roll dough to a 12" circle on the Simply Perfect Pastry Sheet. Using the bottomside of the Empanada Maker, cut 4 rounds of pastry. Re-roll dough as needed. Place a cut round of pastry on the Empanada Maker; moisten edges with beaten egg or water.
Place heaping tbsp. of filling in center of Empanada Maker and close, pressing tightly to seal. Open and remove the sealed empanada and place on baking sheet lined with the Silicone Wonder Mat. Brush tops of empanadas with beaten egg. Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

How can we improve our health and that of our families, increase our organization in kitchens and homes, save money, and take care of the environment? The answer can be found in a line of products... and those products are produced by Tupperware! You might ask how Tupperware can help in all of these areas?
Tupperware prevents the loss of vitamins and minerals from foods, that are stored in our refrigerators, freezers, and cupboards. Since we know "we are what we eat", there is one step towards maintaining and improving health.
Organization is a big challenge for all of us. Modular Mate containers in our kitchen cupboards, FridgeSmart containers in our fridges, along with Freezer Square Rounds in our fridges and freezers, go a long way in organizing the room that seems to be a collect all. When our kitchens are organized there is a feeling of organization throughout our homes.
With these challenging and uncertain economic times, everyone is concerned. Let's use Tupperware to extend and preserve the life of those expensive groceries, and save money big time. With FridgeSmart containers, we won't be dumping limp produce in the compost or garbage at the end of the week, and Modular Mates will keep our pantry items fresh and bug free. These are sure ways to save money.
And what about the environment? Can Tupperware help us go GREEN? Tupperware is 62 years old, and an original green company, that creates very high quality containers and tools, meant to be reused, last a lifetime, and not end up in the landfill.
On the topic of the environment, here are a couple of statistics for you: Did you know that 31 billion liters of water are produced every year in the US, so that people can take water with them? Those bottles require some 17 million barrels of oil for production, and many of them end up in landfills and in our waterways. Lots of those plastic bottles end up in mass on the floor of our oceans, and others negatively impact animal all around the world. Also consider that it takes more energy to recycle plastic bottles than to manufacture new ones, to realize that we must halt or at least reduce their use. Halting or reducing disposible water bottle use also decreases our dependence on foreign oil producers, a state that is good for all of us.
So where does Tupperware fit in? For starters Tupperware has many styles of beverage containers for both hot and cold drinks to choose from, that are reuseable and dishwasher safe. Let's all do what we can to reduce our impact on the environment, by doing something as simple as, taking our water with us in a reuseable container, and to choose containers that are meant to be reused whenever we can. That is better for both us and our environment.
So think about HOME and what it means to you... and when you start to think seriously about HOME... think Tupperware! Then give me a call to find out how you can get FREE Tupperware, another money saving idea!

Let’s say you spend $7 a day or $35 a week for lunch, $5 a day or $25/week for coffee and/or breakfast, and around $8 a week for gas to travel to and from lunch. Your total expenditure is $68 a week or over $3500 a year! In many cases, that total can easily rise to between $3900 and $5200 a year!

I guess it pays to rave about someone's cooking!
Pictured are my freshly baked muffins, baked in the Tupperware Silicone Muffin Pans. These muffin pans make great muffins and are easy to clean - things that are important to me when I bake.
5 cups flour
2 cups wheat germ
1-1/2 cups sugar
2 Tbsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 liter buttermilk
1/2 cup oil
3 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
In large bowl, mix together dry ingredients. In separate bowl, whisk eggs; add buttermilk and oil. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix lightly just until moistened. Fold in blueberries. Scoop into Tupperware Silicone Muffin Pans or lightly oiled or paper lined muffin tins.
Bake in 375 degree oven for 20 - 25 minutes or until lightly browned on top.
Thanks Greta! Now we can all enjoy these muffins!

My 2 butter lettuces are rinsed and placed in a large FridgeSmart Container, where they will be refrigerated until I prepare a salad for dinner. You might notice the fresh broccoli in another FridgeSmart Container, and last but not least, those beautiful greens of Swiss Chard and Beets will occupy a third large FridgeSmart Container. Everything is ready to prepare, and will keep way better than if stored in a plastic bag.
And did you notice? I didn't need to pick up even 1 plastic bag at the market! Can you tell? I love my folding baskets and my Tupperware! They save me both time and money, and I have the freshest produce in town!

(Source: www.tupperware.com) In 1946, Earl Tupper introduced plastic storage ware with airtight seals patterned after the inverted rim on a can of paint which prevented food from drying out, wilting or losing its flavor. Despite this breakthrough, the products didn't sell well in retail outlets, primarily because consumers needed demonstrations in order to see how they worked. In response, the first Tupperware Home Party was held in 1948. This proved a dramatically effective way of communicating.
Tupperware is celebrating its 62 Birthday this year, and 60 years in the home party business. Tupperware was the first company to sell products at home parties, and since then, many companies have copied Tupperware's successful marketing plan!

So, for sure you don't want any of your staples to go to waste. You don't want to lose any of your dry goods to bugs, or to oxidation that causes rancidity.
Here is a recent experience I had with flour that you might be interested in: I bought some whole grain cake and pastry flour that was sealed with an expiry date towards the end of 2009, and when I opened it I took a whiff to make sure it was fresh. Boy, I was glad I did, because although it should have been as fresh as the day it was ground, it was rancid. How did I know? Fresh flour should have no odor at all. If it has any "smell" at all it is rancid. White flour keeps almost indefinitely because the "germ" has been removed. The "germ" is where the wheat berry stores the oil, and it is the oil that goes off. Whole wheat flour will stay fresh for about 3 months when stored in a cool dark cupboard, but for longer storage keep it in the fridge or better yet, keep it in the freezer. Your Tupperware containers like Modular Mates are ideal for storing grains and flours for optimal freshness, and they even work in the freezer. Don't let your expensive grocery purchases go to waste... store them in Tupperware!
Modular Mates are available in Brilliant Blue or Passion (shown)

Now is the perfect time to increase the shelf life of both flour and rice, by storing them in Tupperware Modular Mates. Modular Mates will keep your goods fresh, and protect them from bugs and beetles too.
I'd love to do a Custom Kitchen planning for you!

The one and two cup bowls "click" together to pair things like cereal and milk, or yogurt and granola. This way your items won't get soggy when you need to transport or store them before serving.
I look forward to the January draw for those of you with referrals before the end of the month!
