Things I am not going to buy - Day 22: Tins of chopped tomatoes
I'm not really sure why, but I have a strange habit of buying tins of chopped tomatoes in bulk. I don't mean the packs of 6 that you can get in the supermarket, but I mean a carton of 4 packs of 6 - ie 24 tins at a time, from Costco.
It's not as though I do a huge amount of cooking with tomatoes (or with anything...), and they're not the sort of thing you can just open and eat as a tasty snack(!). They sit in a cupboard taking up far too much storage space, mocking me each time I open the cupboard door. I don't know what happened over the past few years, but I ended up with about 48 tins of tomatoes lurking in the cupboard. My tomato amnesia is a close rival to the bath product amnesia discussed in yesterday's post.
