My father was something of a pack rat when it came to building supplies. The family joke is he would decide on a project, then go out and purchase everything he needed for said project. This included nails, wood, tape, hinges, paintbrushes, paint sticks... You get the idea.
My mother inherited a substantial inventory of nails, wood, tape, hinges, paintbrushes, paint sticks, etc.
I'm usually more of a list maker myself, primarily because I've rarely had enough money to just go shopping and get what I need on the fly. However there appears to be an exception to this rule.
I found a a pumpkin spice coffee creamer recipe, made with Almond milk and honey instead of cream and sugar. This prompted a trip down the spice aisle of my local grocery, recipe in hand. I knew I had some of the spices I needed, but did not know if I had them all. I had them all, and then some!
This is my pumpkin spice stash. That is one full cup of premixed pumpkin spice, and at least another cup's worth of fixin's in the background.
I will have pumpkin spice coffee all year long!
