There's a reason I love Estate Sales...
Just look at this stuff on my pantry shelf!
Probably a good 30% - 40% of it was free, from a local estate sale, some of it was ours already, and another little bit was purchased from another estate sale - at vastly reduced prices!
It seems that with the last sale, the Mom had recently gone into a home, after her husband died... and rather than try and dispose of the food themselves (the children were from another state) they just gave it all away - containers and all!
Everything is well within the use-by date, and a lot of it is stuff that we usually can't afford.
Still sorting through things, and trying to get everything organized. So don't look at the mess.
Just keep your eyes on the goodies!
There are some very pricey Wolfgang Puck spices here somewhere, but they might still be in another bag.
And every one of the spices, are completely unopened and still sealed.
Sugar and spice, and everything nice.
The sugars have been opened, but they'll be used for Hummingbird food.
The Hummers will love me.
Enough beans to keep us tooting our own horns for months on end, and the containers will come in so handy!
And here's the reward, for when all the unpacking, sorting and stocking of shelves is done!
Now if I could just find those blasted Water Crackers, and some cheese, dinner would be ready!
With this kind of reward to look forward to, I better get back to sorting...
