Slate.com has an interesting list of tips from readers to reduce food waste. As discussed previously in this blog, North Americans end up throwing a lot of food in the garbage, food they paid good money to buy. However, there is only one truly efficient way to ensure that you do not waste food: buy less and do not buy any more food until you have consumed what you already have. Sure, it will require you to be creative, but having less food in the fridge will mean that you will see what you have and you will be forced to eat everything before you spend more money. This, in the long run, will mean less food waste and greater cost savings.
