I took this picture on Monday, boy was I off to a bad start. That is 6 hamburger buns, 2 hot dog buns and 1 avocado (pictured, there was more waste). These hamburger buns have been in my pantry for months, yes months. They still looked good, smelled good, and were nice and soft but I seriously have a problem with eating something that isn’t showing the least signs of again after months. The hot dog buns are a few weeks old. Neither are regular purchases and since we don’t regularly eat meat these just sat.
The avocado sat too long as well. Such a shame.
On Monday I also bit into a rotten apple that go tossed and spat out. Then I decided to eat leftover hummus and it to had gone bad. I was getting a little concerned after such a bad start to the week but thankfully the streak ended there.
I made “break the bank” Costco and grocery store runs on Tuesday and Wednesday so we are full up with fresh food. In fact I had to talk nice to my fridge just to get it all to fit.
How did you do with food waste this week? I figure I threw away about $5 in food. Don’t you just hate to waste?
