Every week, I post a picture of the food that has gone bad over the last seven days. I started doing this in March of 2008 to help motivate myself to use up my food instead of wasting it and it’s been very effective. Since it helped me so much, I invited other bloggers to join me in posting their food waste photos, and Food Waste Friday was born.
Last week, I didn’t really end up going grocery shopping. My car was in the shop for two days (just maintenance work…nothing was wrong) and then we went away for our overnight as soon as I got my car back. This lack of shopping really helped us to clean out the fridge, and so I have no waste this week!
I don’t know if I’m the only one, but after a while I start to feel like I have kind of a backlog of food in my fridge, and it feels so nice to know that only fresh stuff is in there at the moment. Now, if only I can keep it up!
