I am pretty sure the world is ending! My hoarder MIL started cleaning her kitchen this afternoon. When I say hoarder, it is just like on television. I don't know what prompted this unexpected move, but she ordered a dumpster and it is now parked outside her back door.
I am excited not only to pitch crap out, but to see what we find tomorrow when I go to help. In 2010, we poked around a bit while she was gone for a weekend and we found spice tins from the 1950s and 1960s. There were piles of boxes and cans that are pre-UPC code. Tonight when we stopped by, I grabbed something from the "front" of the hoard and it was Rice-A-Roni that expired in 1987!
How exactly do I explain why I will want to keep packaging (sans contents) when we are encouraging her to throw almost everything out?
