Criteria for this collection:
With so many ways to package sauce, it is important to make rules when you decide to collect the packaging. I make these rules to give my collection a certain uniform appearance. The following rules make the collection more aesthetically pleasing and easy to maintain.
1. Only squeezable
Dipping tubs, creamers, and butter tubs cannot be preserved to my liking, and are easily crushed or spilled.
2. No spices, salts, sugars, etc.
There are way too many different sugars, etc. Collecting these items makes my collection far too inclusive.
3. No extra large packets
I will make some rare exceptions, but generally they must fit in my PVC card holders. If I collected large packets, then I would have to consider packets that are included in boxes of food - such as fist-size taco sauces, etc. No thanks.
4. Very similar packets ARE acceptable
If two packets are only slightly different, ie: font variation on ingredient list, then both count separately for the collection.
