Part of saving money, especially when it comes to groceries and food, is to not waste the food that you do buy. If you work hard to save money and purchase good, wholesome food for your family, then why would you want to throw it in the trash each week?
Now I’m not clever enough to have come up with Food Waste Friday on my own. I’m participating along with some other great ladies, including Kristen, a.k.a The Frugal Girl. Why don’t you join us and see how much money you can save by actually eating all the food you buy?
Last week we went to Chick-Fil-A for “Cow Appreciation Day”. You know, where if you dress up like a cow you get a free meal? As in sandwich, fries and drink? Oh yeah, we were all over that.
Of course the kids were so excited to go play in the play area that they pretty much abandoned their food halfway through dinner. I decided to bring it all home to see if we could use it up in some way, shape or form. The chicken was eaten the next day. As were some of the fries. However, not all the fries were as lucky.
No one wanted these poor lonely guys. I seem to have an issue with leftover potatoes, don’t I?
How about you? How much food do you waste each week? Join us in trying to create a food waste-free household!
