Reminder to self: Do NOT buy more until you have used up what you already own.
I was raised with the stock up mentality of depression survivors and really cemented that approach myself when I had to manage on a very small budget as a young mother and wife and college student. I'm trying to break myself of that habit! There are just the two of us and although we need a small supply of food, etc. to get us through a weather problem or power outage (like last year's ice storm) we don't need to stock up on things.
So my new mantra: Do NOT buy more until you have used up what you have!!!!!
