To buy or not to buy - the cornflour dilema

How often does a person buy cornflour?
Once every 6 months?  No probably not even that much.  Once every 9 months?  i'd say that was more like it ...
and here i am, potentially just a few weeks away from emigrating, and my packet of cornflour chooses now to decide to run out.

So what do i do?
Do i buy a new packet knowing that i am going to end up throwing most of it in the bin?  Or do i decide to do without cornflour for the next two months?  Hmm let me look into the future ... i see runny chicken korma ... i see soggy chicken and leek pie ... i see thin gravey ... maybe not then.

Trouble is it is not just the cornflour ... i am getting worryingly low on all sorts of things that seem silly to start replacing ... pudding rice, black pepper, worcester sauce - the list goes on.

Maybe i can find someone to donate all my leftover supplied to before i go?!  I am sure there must be a charity dedicated to providing mustard powder for the needy - after all there is a charity for just about everything else.

Or i suppose i could say pants to that and not replace any of these things.  I could limit my culinary efforts to what i can find in the cupboard - lentil casserole all round it is then.
I can just see it now ......... 'boys its time for tea', 'what are we having?', 'barley and sardine pie', 'oh no not AGAIN!'

...buy the cornflour - you know you want to!

I think the Salvation Army will take food donations for their soup kitchens.

Family and friends shared out all our leftovers. We used to do mega Costco shops and had about 50 loo rolls to get rid of as well as a larder full of food.
