Be Prepared

He was born during the great depression: I was born three months into WWII. So we were both familiar with the concept of being ready for a shortage—or hoarding, which ever way you look at it. But flat anchovies! That's what you get when you tidy/organize/clean out your pantry. I have been getting help lately with my grocery shopping, so I will have to mount a major TSAtype screening procedure when we leave the store.

It wasn't me!

I also seem to do this and was born in WW2 and the aftermath of rationing made me very wary of waste. I seem to put back things for a rainy day too. However, with sell by dates, can't keep things too long. What did we do about that? Nothing was ever labeled. I think we must have just eaten up and survived!
