"We just can't have nice thangs!"
I do almost all our grocery shopping and pride myself on never running out of anything. I know when we're getting low on something and add it to my weekly list. When we empty a jar of something, for example, you can check the pantry and 99 times out of 100 you'll find another new one ready to go. "Always Prepared Scott", that's me.
A few days ago I fixed something to eat and couldn't find the Tabasco. *Gasp* I know....Tabasco is considered legal tender here in the south, and I had NONE. Hmm....
Today I was going to fix myself a quick PB&J for a snack on the run and found we had no J. No jelly? How could that be? No strawberry, no grape....none. What the....?
That's when my CSI-like mind deduced K had been on a refrigerator cleaning spree again. And I don't mean clean as in "dirty" (it's spotless), but clean as in "I'm tired of looking at this stuff".
The next time you get the urge to clean out the refrigerator, dear wife, don't, OK? JUST DON'T!
Make your list of what you deem not fit for purpose, and I'll make mine, and then we can call in trained negotiators to decide.
And just for the record, Twinkies have a shelf life of at least 100 years. Don't even think about it! ;)
