I don’t condone throwing away food. We’ve got a serious problem with how casual we are when it comes to food waste. I’m not going to eat that pasta. Toss. I’m not going to eat that tomato. TOSS. I’m not going to eat that mold covered turkey sandwich from Subway. TOSS. So wasteful.
This speaks to a larger issue. We buy too much stuff because we have these grandiose craisin visions. 10 packs of craisins for 10 dollars? Sure! I’ll eat 100 ounces of dried fruit! WHO WOULDN’T?!
This is how we end up walking into our kitchen at 2 am for a snack only to find rodents have worked their way into our craisin collection. Or our chicken soup collection. Or our canned pig feet collection.
Who are you, anyway? Some guy who builds bomb shelters and sends out bomb shelter care packages? HI TOM AND SALLY! THANKS FOR PURCHASING OUR BOMB SHELTER! HERE ARE SOME CRAISINS AND CANNED SOUP FOR THE APOCALYPSE.
Ask yourself this: Do you even LIKE craisins? The answer is … you’re not sure, because you’ve never had them before. Has anyone ever tried a craisin? Leave a comment below if you have. Unless you are for sure the biggest fan of something, don’t buy it in bulk. It takes up space and creates waste, because eventually that uneaten food passes its expiration date and ends up in the garbage.
So, if you’ve got a little stockpile going and you are convinced that North Korea is going to bomb us, well, unconvince yourself and drop your craisins off at the nearest homeless shelter. Let them figure out what to do with that stuff.
