Every week, I post a picture of the food that has gone bad over the last seven days. Why do I do this? Because in March of 2008, I finally got fed up with the amount of food I was wasting, and I thought that showing my waste to other people would motivate me to use up my food instead of wasting it. Because this often embarrassing practice was so helpful for me, I invited other bloggers to join me in posting their food waste photos, and Food Waste Friday was born. If you’re not a blogger but still want some food waste accountability, feel free to participate by leaving a comment.
I’m not gonna lie…it had gotten pretty bad in there over the holidays. It’s not that there was a ton of bad food in there, it’s just that it was dreadfully disorganized. I forgot to snap a before picture, but here’s what it looks like now.
Full, but clean. And organized.
Here are two bad things I found lurking…some seriously shriveled green beans, and a cucumber with some moldy spots.
That’s not nearly as horrible as I was expecting. Phew.
And I am feeling very positive about my food waste prospects for the next week since my fridge is so organized.
