A long, long time ago.....

I actually posted to this blog. The last month has been a serious blur. To start with, we were short a person at work for 3 weeks starting at the end of March. The solution to her absence is that I get to do her job and mine. I will be posting a lot about the last few weeks over the course of this week. But I thought I would post something for your amusement. A peek into the madness. The last time I posted pics of my stockpile it was just in my bathroom, but it has grown in many ways. We have purchased some storage supplies as you will see over the coming days. For now we will start with the pantry. This is a small cabinet with 4 shelves. It stands 5 ft tall and we have 10 ft ceilings (just to give you a frame of reference)

Warning images may disturb you and cause you to consider an intervention. Please note that we do have it under control. I give you the pantry.

This is the view of the entire thing. It is a thing of joy and beauty to behold.

This is the cereal portion of the stockpile. As you can see like cereals are grouped together. They are stacked with the expiration dates facing. This is for easier choosing of what needs to be eaten first. To the left of the cereal is a stack of Quaker Granola Bites. These little balls of granola goodness are one of Andrew's favorites.

This is a close up of the inside. As you can see we have a complement of salad dressings, rice a roni, pudding, pancake mix, tortellini, pb, jelly and granola bars. On the bottom is the Manwich and diced tomatos. There are roughly 14 cans of organic diced tomatos on the bottom shelf.

So, there is our new pantry. This has freed up other areas of storage for more stockpiling. Today I picked up 4 jars of pasta sauce and 9 toothbrushes for $1.45 oop. So, the space is going to be put to good use.

So if you feel like visiting, just remember to bring a bag.

*packs Kivas, heads to 88 west* :D

I need to come shopping at the Larson's Store!!! LOL

I have given up on the intervention - I think you're beyond help! :) I guess if you're going to be addicted to something, couponing isn't *that* bad a vice.
