I used to be terrible about wasting food. I would buy lots of fresh food and eat only about a quarter of it before it went bad. This is so unfortunate – it’s a waste of good food and lots of money. It’s tempting to only go to the store occasionally, but it leads to this kind of wastefulness. I’ve started going to the store at least twice each week. This way, I only buy what I can eat in a reasonable amount of time. It’s been such a great switch. I no longer waste food and money, and I am eating fresher foods and cooking more well rounded meals. Try to get to the store more often and buy less each time, and try to use everything you buy.
