We have oil or kerosine lamps and they have came in really handy when the power went out.I consider myself a 'hoader'!! But not like a hoarder on the show. But I feel the necessity to have 5 or 6 cast iron pans even though I have never used a cast iron pan! LOL! I want a grain mill...even though I have no wheat berries! LOL! We have a lot of clothes and shoes! More blankets and mattresses than we have beds and people for! I have 6 or 7 oil lamps and lots of candles. I have never used more than 2 oil lamps at a time. Fabric...yeah well lets not go there! I am a 'collector' of canning jars!! I am not sure that I could fill ALL of the canning jars that I have right now in one year!
But food? What food? I don't have any food! I have teenage boys! It is impossible to keep food in our house! :dunno:
PamsPride, you might learn to use your cookware now. A crisis is not a good time to try to learn a new skill. If you burn up or ruin the food now, it is not going to be as big a deal now as it would be during a shortage.I consider myself a 'hoader'!! But not like a hoarder on the show.

Hubby called me a food hoarder once. It kinda hurt my feelings, so I take every opportunity to point out to him the price increases
That's my case. My hubby called me a food hoarder once too. I don't have food in other rooms, only two.....well, maybe three, but one is kind of a stageing area. I use the dining room to hold things that need to be repacked for long storage.
:lolsmash:"Has anyone else been called a hoarder?"
I've never been called a hoarder, but my old girlfriend has been called something like that a time or two! :lolsmash::lolsmash::lolsmash:
I know. I have a sick sense of humor. :nuts:
LOL - Love this!!!!Coming up, I guess we were hoarders to a degree. The Pantry have homemade blackberry and Mahaw jelly on the shelves, as well as fig preserves from our land. Sad to say now but, when I got older and went into a grocery store they sold jelly there. I thought "Wow, now everyone has stolen my Mom's idea." ....Jack
