I went on my very first grocery shopping trip as the new Mrs. Cox. Among my purchases was a can of Ham & Bean Soup.
Fast forward 1 year. The unexpired can still sat in the pantry. By this time we purchased our very first home. The can made the journey with us.
Fast forward to 2005. The can is now expired, but I can't throw it away! It was a piece of nostalgia. I decided to hold on to it a little longer...just for laughs.
Let's fast forward again, to the present. We just celebrated our 10 year anniversary and the can still sits in my pantry. I don't know if I will ever throw it away ;)
*disclosure. This is the only expired can in my pantry. I promise you I am not a hoarder nor am I a gross person. We will never, ever, ever eat the soup.
