Squirreling away for the winter

DSC09220As we were hiking in Alaska, we saw a mushroom high up in the tree.

It turns out a squirrel put it there as part of its overall winter-proofing strategy. Good job.

What are you good at squirreling away? How do you maintain a balance between saving and stashing for a long winter and unhealthy hoarding?

Being without a home base, I cannot afford to hoard. But I love mushrooms and that’s one thing that I can see myself saving in a tree branch for a rainy day.
