I don't understand what you are saying, could you explain please? Trying to set some things aside = hoarding?
My grandparents had names for the places you put food you will need beyond the next few days - a pantry and a root cellar; not a hoard.
Keeping non-perishables, buying what you use, rotating and using what you buy = being selfish & depriving children of food??? What?
Live for tomorrow, don't worry, and if anything bad happens we can't do anything about it and we all die someday anyway? Be fatalistic, but also
