My Mini Mart

I have lots of food at home. In my kitchen cabinet I have few cupboards dedicated for food, stored with cans of soup, processed food, mushrooms, UHT milk, sauces in bottles and whatever I may have forgotten.

But most of the guests who come into my home gets shocked by this food larder that is in my dining area. It is actually a chiller that I don't turn on since I already have one in the kitchen and a chest freezer. As utility bill comes up close to $200 per month, I thought I better use this as a food larder instead. I used this fridge to chill self service soft drinks in a little cafe i operated years ago.

When my friends see this, they normally joke that I was doing a mini mart business! I have this habit of shopping for grocery and I can't stop buying. I know some succumbed to shopping therapy for clothes, shoes, bags and that stuff. But me, ahem... guess this is shopping therapy to me. I even have a large white opaque box full of kids' titbits and another one to store bottles of soda, coke, ice lemon tea, and ribena in easy packs.

I can't stop shopping. I even bought a carton of instant noodles once because they were on offer. It took a long time to consume them but the expiry date was much later. I have lots of sauces that I use, cake products because I bake twice a week too.
