  • Don't know if I should be happy or concerned but we are a couple of days into this and it hasn't dented the cupboards or the freezer. I've always liked the idea of shopping a few times a week and cooking what looks good/in season. I didn't realise how much I had shoved in there, habit of buying same things all the time.
    yeap same here. i am sure there is someone/thing filling them up when i am asleep.

    I'm starting to wonder if this is a "syndrome"??

    Is there a help group, say Freezer Fillers Anonymous??

    "Hi, I'm Lynsey and I'm a freezer filler" :rotfl:

    Bless you for that. I have been out but avoided food shopping for me, Just bought a huge cauliflower on the market for 50p, present for my DD.

    Spent the rest of my grocery budget on the carboot and CS,
    Got a lovely old brown ceramic teapot for my herb tea,reminds me of the one my Nan had. A phone charger cos I left mine at my Brothers last week. One of those dinkiy half size kettles,hoping to save elec ,8 paperbacks, and all my seeds for next year from Wilkinsons 75% off.saved a massive £10.62.

    So safe again until next Friday. Please shout at me again. I have
    no will power.

    I think we can all help and support each other. There is a reason, personal to ourselves why we feel the need to stockpile as we do, childhood memories,hard times, difficult situaation for a while. I think we need to revaluate and see if that still applies.

    I need to join that support group!

    think I only need a few bits, go to supermarket and £40 later! Done shop online this week which seems better but a few things did not turn up so I was a good girl today I took a list and £10 cash and only got what was on the list!

    But cupboards and 2 freezers full, so i need to shop from home for a few weeks.

    Been to price up a bedroom carpet today and its going to cost twice as much as I thought, oh dear!

    i am not sure what to say, except you may have hit the painful truth.

    many thanks. time to chuck out the skeletons, and be free again
