Well, I have some personal news. I
have come out of retirement to (again!) become a Tupperware®
Consultant. I sold Tupperware® when my daughters were young
and I wanted to earn extra money for the household. As my
children grew, I pursued other careers and retired in 2003. It is
now 2008, and I am very excited about the new
including the ability to own a Tupperware® website.
