I’m super stoked to have a guest post featured on Money Saving Mom this week for the first time! If you haven’t visited Crystal and her extraordinarily resourceful blog yet, please do! She is a source of inspiration for spending less, frugal and healthy home management, and good stewardship of the gifts we have. Following is an excerpt from my post.
I thought I was pretty good at avoiding food waste, until I cleaned out my fridge a couple weeks ago.
Ugh. Do I really have a science experiment growing on the back of the bottom shelf?, I thought to myself. Why yes, yes I did. I found myself disgusted with the amount of food I had let slide past my attention.
While it was a disheartening cleaning session, I finished with renewed vigor to cut back my waste — and hey, maybe save a few bucks at the same time!
Is food waste a problem in your house too? Here’s how you and I can put less food in the garbage and more in our bellies.
