Food Waste Friday 6-24-11

It's time for Food Waste Friday, when the Frugalgirl encourages us to post pictures from the previous week of wasted food from our household. This accountability hopefully will help us to be more careful with our food and maybe save some money. 

Here it goes for this week.

The bread molded.
For the first time in a couple of years, we had molded bread. I'm not sure what happened, but even with the best of intentions, things can get way from you.

However, the biggest waste resulted from a trip to Costco with my son when we were both hungry. Among other things, we purchased a two pound bag of potato chips and two pounds of spinach dip. Even though the family ate everything, it was definitely more than we needed. This resulted in the double whammy of wasted money and wasted calories. Next time we'll try to remember the rule of never go food shopping when you're hungry.
Tasty, but too many chips and too much dip.

  1. Costco is just deadly when you are hungry. Don't get me started on the candy section :)


What do you think?
