    Where did this come from, Klunick? Tradd was responding to IL's post about the decision the fill the dumpster full of canned at the food bank as I read it, not about you. I may have it wrong but don't believe so.
    You asked for opinions on what to do about emergency supplies that your DH bought and you have been given all kinds of suggestions. It is your decision. as it always was.
    The point not well covered is that your DH created this problem, what is his suggestion to resolve it and prevent recurrence?

    Yes, I was responding to Iris.

    Geez, what’s your problem?

    Is some of your street cred from tearing me to pieces because I choose not to have an ATM card, and telling me I'm so annoying if anyone kidnapped me they would kill me right away?

    Credibility comes from the quality of one's posts, not longevity.

    Quality of one’s posts? That’s an effing scream! That’s really a case of the pot calling the kettle black.

    Oh, one who covid is a cold and I must eternally cater to the weird whims of my mentally ill son.

    Well I'll admit that I was taken aback at first by Tradd's comment, also thinking it was directed at Kelli, but then I realized she was talking about IL's food bank recipient who threw away the food. I suppose either way it wasn't the nicest of comments.
    Kelli, in my area, we often see food donation boxes at places like the local library or a drive on a specific date at our local senior center, so you might want to keep on the lookout for some thing like that that has location & hours that would work for you. Our local food pantry also has extremely narrow donation hours, so we have never donated directly. We have donated to drives on their behalf in these other locations.

    I think that's a decluttering choice that I also regret. We didn't use ours much, so I gave it to a woman at work who had been wanting one, so at least I feel good about that part I suppose. I do think it would come in handy for specific tasks though.

    I have had the misfortune to work with some real mean girls in the past who mastered passive aggressive nastiness. One thing they did was to tear to pieces something Person A did, "How could she do something like that?", "Who does something like that?" etc within earshot/close proximity of Person B, knowing that Person B does the same thing as Person A.

    If someone overheard just part of the conversation and would call them out on it they would say, "Oh I wasn't talking about B, I was talking about A."

    Interesting... since IL mentioned "newly pregnant", I picked up right away where Tradd's comment was being applied.

    As IL mentioned, I am one of those who really dislike food waste and will usually go out of my way to find a home for extra instead of tossing.

    I also gave mine to a friend, who uses the heck out of it - so I feel good about it as well. But, I agree with you that I think it would come in handy for specific tasks. I go back and forth about getting another one, but still haven't totally justified it. I think if I found one slightly smaller than I had (but NOT one of those mini-chopper things - bigger) AND if it had a kneading blade, I might be able to replace two other appliances... maybe? LOL - see! I go back and forth, so definitely not getting a new one... yet.
