Food Waste Friday: A cucumber

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?

Well my plethora of cucumbers finally caught up with me.  I had one lone cuke sitting on the counter, and I had every intention of using it up.  Then we left for St. Louis for the weekend and I forgot about it.  When we got back, it was still sitting there, yellowed, shriveled, and molding.

I suppose I should be grateful that of all my garden produce this is the first to go bad.  And at least this was free, but it still ticks me off, because itt would have been so easy to eat up or even to grab and take with us to St. Louis.  Oh well.

How about you?  How much food do you waste each week?  Join us in trying to create a food waste-free household!
