Hypochondriac or Hoarder?

I do not get any television channels, but I watch a lot of television shows that are available online. I am currently on a Hoarders kick. Have yous seen it? It's disturbing.

First of all, I do NOT recommend eating while watching Hoarders. I was gagging tonight when they were removing cat carcasses from the home of an extreme animal lover hoarder.

This photo (below) shows me watching Hoarders on my computer while cooking.

Another hoarder that they showcased was a food hoarder.

This got me worried.

I am not a compulsive shopper for clothes, but when I go to the grocery store, I am a coupon queen who is easily persuaded by "buy 1, get 1 free" advertisements..

Here is my fridge. Now, I think my fridge would be acceptable for a family, but I live alone. Cause for concern?

I am very freakish about expired food, so I think I'm safe. Anytime that veggies and fruit look droopy, I bag them up and throw them in the freezer. It's difficult to know what can be safely frozen and the correct procedure for freezing food. My favorite website to use for these questions is I use this website at least once per week. Did you know that you can freeze eggs?!?! It is challenging to cook for one. I even have containers of chicken broth in my freezer thanks to I look forward to thawing the chicken broth again this winter to make a soup.


  1. I did *not* know you can freeze eggs! Thanks!

    P.S. Your refrigerator looks great to me :)

  2. I haven't had to freeze my eggs *yet,* because I cook with eggs a lot.

    I'm looking forward to freezing eggs for when I'm going somewhere (by car) for a weekend and planning to make an egg bake-- I'd rather have frozen eggs in a cooler than shelled eggs that could potentially break and make a huge mess.

  3. That's a great idea! Gives you more options for cooking on the road.

    I use/eat too many eggs to need to freeze them. Lots for baking... and have been addicted to farm omelettes on the weekends lately!
