Of course I want a receipt!

March 3rd, 2008 at 05:17 pm

Occasionally I have little "mini-nervous breakdowns" about the disorganization in my house. So my latest one involved not being able to find a library book, but somehow it led me to cleaning out our pantry. I was amazed at the amount of food we had that was past it's due date. We must have had 30 cans of chili that we don't remember buying and it's so old there is no date on it. We also 20 cans of tuna dated 07/2007 and a bunch of other assorted stuff. I felt terrible throwing it away, so I called the local St. Vincent de Paul dining facility. They were happy to take it all.

The intake person asked if we wanted a receipt. DH automatically said "No". I said, "Oh yes we do!" Guess who pays the bills in our house, sees the tax accountant each year and has a file to put all tax related items... yeah me that's who!

So now I am really ready to stay organized, rotate the food in the pantry and get all that stuff in the freezer eaten!

    I get a receipt for everything, but I'm surprised that they would accept out dated food

    The receipt is still sitting in my car, but I will bring it in and place it in the appropriate file.

    I know what you mean Amber, but canned food is supposed to be good for a very long time and I think the dates are "guidelines", but I couldn't bring myself to eat it.

    Funny, my sister did the same thing after hearing what I did. She had the food in a bag sitting by her door and her youngest daughter was visiting and said she wanted it! So she took it.

    I guess so I use to work at a pharmacy and the pharmacist said it was ok to take nmeds that was expired but I still don't
