Food Waste Friday

One blog that really pushed me into finally starting this one was Frugal Girl. She has a segment on her blog called Food Waste Friday and she encourages people to join her with this embarrassing show and tell.

Well, as you all know, I am all about shaming/embarrassing myself into becoming less gross and food waste is one of my many faults. So, I decided I’d join her and the others and share my food wastes on here.

The Fridge...full of waste

The Fridge Door...also full of waste

Yeah, I just took a picture of the inside of my fridge and marked what’s going away. I didn’t really want to touch any of it, much less put it out on the counter (which is covered with dishes anyway). Plus, I have a lot of food waste for this Friday, I am ashamed to say.

Here’s what you are looking at:

  • container of…something (top left)
  • REALLY old cheese sauce stuff
  • a really gross noodle thing I decided to try
  • something from some restaurant
  • one wedge of Laughing Cow cheese
  • old mayo
  • an open old wedge of Laughing Cow cheese
  • bell pepper
  • Chinese left overs (that’s actually just the box with bits in it; I didn’t want it smelling up my trash)
  • an apple…I think
  • I have no idea but I’m gonna miss that container (it’s too old and gross in there to save now)
  • apple juice
  • carrots
  • another empty Chinese left overs box
  • yogurt
  • bag salad in the drawer…or so it was at one time
  • [in the door] eggs
  • old Velveeta
  • one of these boxes of margarine is old and thrown out
  • apple jelly
  • parmesan cheese
  • salsa
  • milk
  • ginger beer…that was opened…and almost finished

The smells funny

Oh and let’s not forget the freezer…which is starting to smell funky, too.

  • chicken strips
  • daiquiri
  • veggies I tried to save but failed (asparagus and broccolini)

Not pictured is a box of Chex that I tossed out on Wednesday night. They have been open and sitting on the floor by my couch for who knows how long. I tossed them too.

I look at a post like this and I think, “Gee, how am I still single?”

  1. This is what my fridge and freezer looked like the first time I ever did a Food Waste Friday. Thank goodness I wasn’t blogging then; I would have been so embarrassed! Good for you for posting it all. Now maybe with your fridge clean, you will have a better week!
