Despite the small amount of food I keep in the house I really need to pay attention to what we have and use what we have. A little extra effort in this area will save ALOT of money and prevent so much waste. I throw away so much food because I forget about it and it goes bad. Like right now we have one Roma in the fridge. If I don't plan something for that little guy I know I'll be throwing it away shortly. This year I really really really don't want to throw away food. I wish there were a way to track how much food I've thrown away over the years and how much money it all amounted to. There's no way of knowing but I'm serious about this. NO MORE FOOD IN THE TRASH! That goes for leftovers too.
Tomorrow I will clean the fridge out and the cupboard and make a list of everything in the house and then give each item a purpose. On the menu for tomorrow: turkey bacon quiche and pineapple upside down cake. Is it horrible that I sometimes look forward to a day depending solely on what food will be in it? I do.
Average daily spending for the year so far: $12.69
