BEST. TUPPERWARE. EVAR.

I need to know about the most badass tupperware-type stuff. Right now we have a mixed "collection" of mason jars, to-go containers, Talenti gelato jars, and the occasional thing that's actually meant for the job, but who knows where the hell the lid for it is. [more inside]

App for organizing tons of pdf and other files into a research library?

1. I don't want to have to upload anything to the web. 2. I'd like to have one and the same file show up under multiple different categories. For instance, if there's a book about the math of baseball, I'd like to be able to have it show up in a category called "math" and also show up in a category called "baseball." 3. It would be cool if it could allow for the feature of associating a given file with an image, such as a book or DVD cover (so that browsing them could be like browsing on Netflix) or a book or DVD binding (so that different collections could appear in a graphic way as looking like items on a bookshelf).

Best place to hold stuff I need to get to later on?

Every now and then I go through my inbox and clear it out. I create events in Google calendar whenever there is an item I need to address in the future. I've never been 100% happy with this non-system for reasons I can't properly define. Is there some better place to offload everything that integrates with Android and windows/any browser?

Organize my family life

Help me organize my family life. I've seen previous questions and don't think that Cozi is the solution. Maybe it's not an App but Apps I'm looking for, or are we simply not making the most of the tools we have available on our iPhones. How do you keep your family life organized? If you can give examples of how you use the tools vs. just the names that would be even more super-helpful. Details and specific criteria below the fold, but we need to manage and sync multiple calendars, shopping lists, to do lists, etc. Both wife and I have iPhones (me: 4s, her 3gs), she also has an iPad which she will use, also she isn't very techie so the more straightforward the better, and I need to sync an Outlook work calendar from a work PC that doesn't play nice with Outlook add-ons (other than Google calendar).

Best ways to organize articles on a web site?

I have a how-to type web site that's grown to be fairly large. The categories I've created to organize my articles often don't fit well and I may already have too many. I'm also not using tags. I seem to lack both a good system and an aptitude for labeling & categorizing things. I need to come up with a better method that my readers will find more useful and which will also be search engine friendly. [more inside]
