I hope you can help. My Mum cannot stop buying food and it is all going off in the fridge and as she isn't checking dates, I am getting very worried.
Basically there is only my Mum and Dad to buy for and she buys such excessive amounts, and then it all goes off in the fridge and she leaves it. I am clearing out the fridge on a weekly basis when I visit and I have told Mum numerous times, very gently that she cannot keep buying food like this, but she wont listen. My Dad is worried about finances along with food poisoning as it's really getting out of hand.
I have offered to do the shopping and so has my Dad, but she will not let us and gets quite aggressive over this as I think she sees it as her one outlet. She won't even let me accompany her. My friends Mum bumped into my Mum in M&S last week and Mum told her that she was only buying a loaf of bread. Mum spent £103.00.
I am getting worried about this though and wondered if anyone could offer some suggestions or has been through something similar?
