We had house guests last weekend therefore we stocked up on extra groceries so we could avoid the costly yet convenient eating out trap.  I had plenty of things on hand that were easy to whip up with minimal time that was family friend to both families.  The only waste – not pictured – was a bag of coleslaw that was dressed. It doesn’t keep more then a day or two and well, it was made Saturday evening and thought of again on Tuesday night.  It had that ‘smell’ so we just tossed it to be safe. Probably about 3 cups worth. Better safe then sorry right?

How’d you do?

On Friday’s, I share what food items that I have ‘wasted’ by letting spoil during the week from forgetfulness and/or neglect. Kristen over at The Frugal Girl has inspired me to publicly post in hopes of reducing waste. (Food Waste Friday is now being co-hosted every other week with Simply Being Mum – pop on over to take a peek!)
