    Where I am from (KS), a maidrite is basically a “crumbly” hamburger. We put pickles, onion and mustard on them. A sloppy joe has a tomato-type sauce and bell peppers in it. Also known as “Manwich”. To comment on the hoarding tendencies-people that are thrifty commonly are hoarders. Saving it for a rainy day. My dad throws nothing out because “he’ll use it sometime”. When he figures out he needs it, he can’t find it! He also has multiples of many things, because he is so unorganized, he has to repurchase it! I don’t think you’re to that point, but if you find that your stuff is consuming you, you might really think about condensing what you have. Love your site, it’s great to see someone so young not so consumed by materialism. Thanks :)

    We call it puppy chow, and maidrites are “loose meat sandwiches” here, which basically is a sloppy joe without tomato sauce. But I am from Iowa as well, so can’t help you out on what other people call them. I came across your blog when it was featured somewhere a few weeks ago..Dollar Stretcher, maybe?… anyway, just wanted to let you know I really enjoy your blog. By the way, I also have the same first and last name as your mom AND live on a farm in Iowa. Kinda spooky…

    I grew up in Iowa and it was always Maidrite, so when I went to college I diddn’t know what a loose meat sandwich was-same thing. I also worry about hoarding. I have a hard time getting rid of any clothing wondering what else I could use it for or transform it in to. Of course, it does come in handy from time to time.

    When I was in school, they called a Sloppy Joe a “Schoolboy Sandwich”.
