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 people, 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?
Yes sirree Bob, nothing to be chucked out of the fridge this week. Woo hoo!
Although in the interest of honesty and transparency, we did throw out quite a bit of uneaten tilapia from last week, about 1/2 a fillet worth. It just didn’t get cooked all the way, and none of us like undercooked fish. I could have saved it and cooked it some more, but I’m not sure I could have stomached it after eating the undercooked part.
Since I have no pictures of wasted food, I’ll share a few I took of Lizzie the other day. I’ve been working on different techniques and types of shots with my camera and was practicing my mirror shots.
I love how this one looks like she’s sitting back to back with a twin. And I couldn’t decide between the color or the B&W one, so you get both.
And I love how mirror Lizzie is in focus and real Lizzie is out of focus in this one.
Anyway, just some photo fun for you today.
How about you? How much food do you waste each week? Join us in trying to create a food waste-free household!
