just curious, but did your grandmother live through the Depression? I ask simply because my grandmother on my dad's side does similar, she's got stuff out in the freezer/fridge out in the barn that probably should be thrown out, but it ain't happening.

I stayed with her for a week during the aftermath of Hurricane Ike & I remember us going to the grocery store & she was APPALLED to learn that the employees had thrown out the frozen foods & proceeded to protest, LOUDLY, I might add.

I tried telling her that they couldn't very well sell that stuff being's that the power had been out but she wouldn't have any of it. At that point I was inwardly chanting 'I don't know this woman, I am not related to her, Jesus give me strength etc'
