OK I have a weird obsession with keeping my pantry stocked to the brim! I don't just want to have enough for meals or a week but I want it full to the brim with things I like or use alot!
There are certain items that I must have at all times. Not just a few of these items, but huge stacks of them! Diapers, toilet paper, paper towels, wet wipes, toothpaste, milk, and bread!
The rub for me is that once I manage to get it stocked up it seems as if something happens and my funds get low so I use what I have on hand and then my stock pile diminishes! Talk about stress around here folks!
I even joined a coupon type club called the grocery game. It helps me keep track of what the best sales are so that I can stockpile when the prices are rock bottom! On their website they have message boards. One of my favorite things to look at on the message boards is pictures people post of their pantry's after they have stocked them!I knew that my obsession had reached a new level when I had spent several hours admiring others pantries and thinking of ways to get mine up to par. I had to crack up when one woman commented that this is like porn to her. Yep, pantry porn! Yeah! I have found my people at last! The pantry porn worked for me too. Finally something that gets me excited!
Most people already know this about me, but I love to buy scratchers! I buy $1.00 scratchers and sometimes when I am living large and dangerously I will even buy $2.00 ones!
Tony hardly ever buys a scratcher. They irritate him. He thinks they are a waste of money! However sometimes when he is with me he will buy a scratcher. he doesn't go cheap, he goes big! Yep, $5.oo scratchers and once even a $10.00 one! Well Saturday I went into circle K to buy my soda and a $1.00 scratcher and Omar (employee) talked me into going big and I bought a $5.00 scratcher! Yikes! BUT.....I won! And I won Big!!! $100.00! WoooHooo!
So, do I buy a outfit for myself? Umm Nope! Do I use it to go to the movies and dinner with my husband? Of course not! What do I do? I keep it on the down low Don't say a word to anyone and sneak off to Sam's club! Yep! I spent all of it! I bought paper towels, toilet paper,milk, bread, and diapers! Ahhh....all is right with my world once again!
Is this weird?
****Disclaimer**** Looks like several people think this is my pantry. Mine is not as spectacular! This is just some pantry porn I found! Don't you love looking at it? I want it too!
