i am a pack rat. I don't know i guess i am afraid that we will be with out something. Now i am on a diet and looking at all that food i can't have makes me want it more. My mom DH and DS live with me. mom is diabetic and can't eat it. DS will eat some once in a while. DH doesn't really eat junk. I don't want to throw it away. and i think if i keep it i will eventually eat it but not now while i am trying to lose weight.
I could use it if i new of healthly snack to make with them.
I have a ton of oatmeal and pb but i don't know how to make healthly no bake cookies.
I was thinking of making a bunch of stuff for DH's friend cause he love homemade goodies but i don't know if DH would get mad and think i was flirting or something.
What would you do?

If I were you, I would call your my food banks, shelters, soup kitchens, etc. and see if any of them will accept opened food. I have also given bags of groceries to local street people but I know some people are uncomfortable doing this....

What exactly do you mean by junk food... food that your diet won't allow or snacky type stuff like chips and cheese puffs?
If it really is junk food I'd get a big garbage bag and throw it out (recycle the containers of course). : I don't think junk food is food so I wouldn't feel like I was wasting anything but the money I spent on it. It's not nutrition for the poor. It's gargbage. And if you are craving it but need it out of your sight do what you need to to get rid of it.
HTH

If it is good foods, than I agree with making it a donation to your local food bank.
