    My parents are the exact SAME! It drove me insane so I made it my mission to consolidate and use up what I could when I lived with them. was successful but god knows what has happened in the year and half since I moved out again!

      Haha I’m glad I’m not the only one with pack rat parents! I can’t wait to move out and have my own organized pantry lol.

    I totally feel your pain on that one – my dad is quite the pack rat! I don’t live home anymore, but that’s one thing I definitely don’t miss at all!

    These balls look wonderful, and fig jam sounds SO tasty! I’ve never tried it before.

    Oh my goodness I almost had a heart attack when I cleaned out my parent’s spice jar a few months ago. Holy 10 jars of 10 year old cinnamon. These look delish, I need to pick up some fig butter!

    OMG I am the same way! I am going home this weekend and dread the pantry… Although the act of using up all of that stuff can end up being delicious! AKA these look awesome!

    I think that was one of the things I loved most about moving out from my parents’ place — not having to deal with their clutter. I can’t stand having multiple jars/boxes/bags of stuff open either, but my parents don’t seem to see a problem with it. Drives me NUTS. But at least you got an awesome recipe out of it! The combo of almonds and figs sounds divine. Heck… it IS divine. I’ve been obsessed with dipping dried figs into almond butter lately. So so good.

      I think leaving behind the messy pantry is one of the things I’m looking forward to most about moving out! It can’t come soon enough haha.

    My parents are such pack rats when it comes to food!! It really irks me, haha. I’m absolutely going to make sure I don’t fall into their habits when I move out ;)

      Same here! I plan on having a super organized and neat pantry… knowing me I’ll probably mess it up after a few months though. :P

    These look amazing! You have to know you had me at fig! I don’t have any fig butter on hand, but I DO have some dried figs I can MAKE into fig butter! :D

    I am a total food hoarder…but I typically only have one of a single item…so basically, my pantry is like a grocery store! So many choices! Haha!

      LOL! You need to post a picture of your pantry on your blog sometime – I imagine it being SUPER full with so many different foods!

    My parents are the same way! I don’t live with them anymore, but whenever I go home I always clean out their fridge of old leftovers and dead veggies, and try to use up half open packages and such. Drives me nuts! Partially because I’m used to living with a tiny kitchen and pantry, I don’t have room for extras.

    What a perfect way to use up the fig butter! Looks delicious :-)

      Often times the veggies in my parents’ fridge are beyond salvation… once I found a bag of green beans so old they were practically liquid! Ugh, so gross haha.
