Pantry Purge: This is the post where apparently I hoard rice

I told somebody that I had found a lot of rice in my pantry. My guess was somewhere around 8 pounds.

It's actually closer to 10. Whoops.

If you have ever wondered "Who in the heck has TEN POUNDS OF RICE in their house?"
The answer is "me." Jo.

I consolidated several bags of rice into my "rice jar."

I think I fit three bags in there. Yay! Now, what to do with the rest of that rice?

I made Ella a bed-warmer sock. (Because, apparently we also have a surplus of mismatched socks in my house). Here's what you do.

You take a sock...make sure it is either all cotton or mostly cotton.

Fill it with rice, and knot or sew off the top. I knotted. I usually sew. It was late.
The first time you heat, do it in 20 second increments in the microwave.
After it's heated you can slip on another mismatched sock (not hard to find around here, I found a pretty fuzzy one) for a cover. Put the sock-warmer in your bed to warm it up, or on your neck/knee/back if it's sore. Voila!
Oh...and here's what my shelf looks like post rice clean-up!
Yay! There's ROOM in there now!
