Houston County News:
Ding-dong, itâ€™s the Tupperware Lady calling.
That would be Linda Manning, 63, the vivacious Tupperware sales consultant from Lansing.
â€œI would make tremendous money if I quit buying it for myself,â€ said Manning, crowned La Crescent Apple Annie for 2006.
After 29 years as an activities coordinator at a local nursing home, Manning started selling Tupperware in August.
She signed up for a starter kit at her daughter-in-lawâ€™s Tupperware party, and before she knew it, she was a consultant.
â€œItâ€™s really important to read that fine print,â€ she said.
But the experience turned out to be a hoot, she said, and her goal was simple.
â€œI didnâ€™t want to get into debt,â€ she said. â€œThatâ€™s not good for the marriage.â€
She also decided to make every one of her clients a friend.
â€œBefore weâ€™re done, weâ€™re going to be, by golly,â€ she said.
Mike, her husband of 43 years, tells her the motor in her van never cools down, but heâ€™s OK with that
