Food Waste Friday

I found this idea on The frugal girls blog and thought it was a great idea.

Here is what she says about it on her blog, "Every week, I post a picture of the food that has gone bad over the last seven days. Why do I do this? Because in March of 2008, I finally got fed up with the amount of food I was wasting, and I thought that showing my waste to other people would motivate me to use up my food instead of wasting it. Because this often embarrassing practice was so helpful for me, I invited other bloggers to join me in posting their food waste photos, and Food Waste Friday was born"

I am so excited to try this out because I know if I have to post it for everyone to see I will be much more likely not to waste food (and money!).

So this week I ended up wasting (Shown above)
-4 chunks of pinapple
-A serving of fresh green beans
-1/3 of a bag of spinach :(
-1/2 a bunch of cilantro

How was your food waste this week?


  1. Cute blog! I love seeing how other people save money and budget. I don't blog about it, but I do try to live it!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! Living it is the most important part right?!

  2. Welcome to Food Wast Friday. I don't think that I've ever been able to use an entire bunch of cilantro. I don't know why they sell it in such big bundles. I think you will find participating in Food Waste Friday will help a lot with lowering your food waste. It certainly did mine.

    1. Thanks I hope so, I truly hate wasting anything especially healthy produce! I know what you mean about cilantro, I am going to try and grow some this year so that I can just pick what I need and not waste any.
