Food Waste Friday--November 18, 2011

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.

We had no weekly waste this week, so I cleaned another shelf in my pantry. There I found peanuts that were starting to get old. This kind of waste seems to happen a lot at our house. Someone will get interested in peanuts or some similar thing, and then are disinterested before they are all eaten. We need to learn to buy smaller bags even if the cost/ounce is a little more. I think that is called better planning. Not like the planning I did when I lined the peanuts up for the picture. Better planning would have left me enough room to get the "S" on the end of the word.

I guess I really don't consider the peanuts a big waste because they will go out for the squirrels and chipmunks and birds. We get a lot of entertainment from watching them. In fact Theodore said that we didn't need a TV since we started feeding them.

These guys are going to have a peanut treat soon.


  1. Oh dear. Your post made me start thinking about my pantry. I haven't cleaned it out in ages. I should probably do telling what's hiding in there.

  2. I think we have old peanuts too. Those critters got a yummy treat.

  3. Love the creative use of the peanuts before sharing them with those little critters :) My daughter Caitlin (7yrs)thought they looked wonderful too and was very happy for the squirrels and chipmunks.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and the words of encouragement.
