I was in my pantry and happened to finally notice that there are ten boxes of cereal (for three people, one of whom is 3 and the other two don't really actually eat cereal). There is a crazy compulsion out there to make purchases. I can attribute three of those boxes of cereal to a $.99 a box sale at the local Hannaford (formerly known as Shop n' Save and before then the old A & P). I have a box of Cheerios for my 9 month niece. Three of the boxes, two of which are open, are the same cereal. I have generic Rice Chex. I have two open jars of peanut butter below the cereal. Three boxes (all open) of hot chocolate mix are on the second from the top shelf. There is a jar of enchilada sauce which I have moved faithfully from my mother's house in Colorado to mi casa in Phoenix and then to North Carolina, north to Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, and to two different locations in the Central Maine area. Pantries are crazy places; they're the manifestations of everyone's secret OCD. Check out Why We Buy: The Science Of Shopping by Paco Underhill. Copies are available at your local library.
