I am famous for buying more of something at the grocery store that I already have in the pantry. I am very short and can't even see what is on the top shelf let alone reach it. Besides if I am getting one of something I might as well get two. You never know when all the grocery stores in the world will disappear on the same day and I won't have a tin of green peppercorns from Madagascar to make a sauce for my steak.
I luckily had a tall person here to empty out the top shelf for me.
I don't have "food" so much as I have "ingredients". Always the promise of good things. None of the commitment.
