Act 228

Take stock – what’s hiding in your fridge?

How often do we end up wasting food because it was hiding in the back of the fridge and we forgot it was there? On many occasions, I’ve bought items at the grocery store because I forgot I already had some. It’s a waste of time and a waste of money.

This week I reorganized the food in the fridge at the cottage. Organized by type (veg, fruit, protein, sauce, dairy, bread) then wrote a list of everything we can eat by meal – breakfast, lunch and dinner – and stuck in on the fridge to eliminate the guess work. This way, we spend less time staring at the open fridge wondering what to eat and more time eating what we’ve already got. Less waste equals more money.
