You may as well be throwing away handfuls of money instead.
As part of my goal to live a more frugal life-syle I plan to not waste food.
I present to you PROJECT NO WASTE!!!
Now im sure this has been done time and time again and called many names but basically the rule is...
Whatever you spend money on at the grocery store, you eat! You don't let it wilt, mould, dry out or curdle.
Usually I spend about $150-$200 per fortnight. Which is loads of money on food when I am feeding only myself and sometimes cooking for 2. I always end up throwing out veggies, breads and other refrigerator items. Yet I still buy coffees and meals out.
This week I again spent $144 and when I got home I was like "Cody what did you actually buy?" In saying that here is my pathetic receipt.
Seeing this I decided enough was enough. I will use everything on here just to make it worth the purchase.
Now its going to be a work in progress to see how much money I really need to spend on groceries and the things I can come up with to not waste anything but I am excited for the challenge.
If you are interested in joining in I would love to see it. Post replies here or use #projectnowaste on instagram and twitter. You can always follow me on facebook and share pictures too. https://www.facebook.com/cody.rowlands.14
