We tend to be pretty wasteful when it comes to food here in America. We order more than we eat, buy more groceries than we use, and end up throwing a lot of perfectly good food away. There are ways to reduce the amount of wasted food in your home though.
Save Those Leftovers for Tomorrow
We’re talking both about those leftovers from your home-cooked meals, and the ones brought home from restaurants. Don’t waste your money by not eating the left-over food, just wrap it up and put it in the fridge for tomorrow.
Freeze Food that is the Most Perishable
Foods we buy that expire the fastest, also tend to be the most expensive. Things like beef, poultry, seafood, and some fruits can be bought in larger quantities, but should be frozen in order to prevent them from going bad. When you want to use them, just take a little time to thaw them out and you’ll be good to go.
Plan out your Purchases
Just because you have the room in your kitchen for perishable food, doesn’t mean it’s always a good idea to buy it. Only buy what you think you’ll use for a week or two, otherwise it may go to waste. Try to use what you have before you buy something to replace it.
