Did you know that Americans throw away almost 30% of the food we buy? When we throw away food, it’s just like scraping dollar bills off of our plates and into the garbage! For every $100 spent at the grocery store, that’s $30 wasted!
Buy only the produce you and your family will reasonably eat before it goes bad. Invest in storage containers that prolong the life of your fruits and veggies. I LOVE Tupperware for this! Wash and cut up produce when you bring it home so that it’s as convenient for your family to grab a quick snack or assemble a salad. Freeze leftovers within 24 – 48 hours if you don’t think someone in your family will eat them before then. Make your own “frozen dinners” instead of buying them at the store!
