Week 5: Smart Savings, Eat What You Buy
Like boarding an airplane there is an order to using up items in the refrigerator. Make sure you are aware of what food needs to be eaten first to avoid having it go bad—wasting money and resources.
A good practice to make sure you’re eating the food you’ve purchased is to make a list each week of what needs to be used up first. Then use this list to meal plan and/or create a leftover list to post on the refrigerator, letting your family know what foods to eat up first. You can also designate a section of your refrigerator for leftover storage.
