Food Waste Friday

save money food preservation tips

Saving Food Saves Money

Spending money wisely also means not wasting it... and that includes not wasting food. So, each week I will give you an opportunity to document what food is needlessly wasted and report it here. Alternately, you may wish to instead highlight the ways you saved food this week! Feel free to leave me a comment with your own food waste/save story, or link to your blog using the widget, below.

After two good weeks of no food waste, I am afraid this week wasn't quite so good.  I had a little lettuce and also 203 ounces of cheddar cheese. I especially hate having to waste cheese as it is one of my favorite foods!

How did you do?

  1. Do you mean 2 or 3 ounces of cheese? That is better than 203 ounces. I did not waste a thing.

  2. Do you compost? I know you shouldn't compost cheese, but any fruit and veggies are good.

  3. I throw leftover cheese into the freezer for use either as a pizza top or on a baked potato.

  4. Why not melt the cheese?! throw in some salsa and make a dip LOL

  5. Anonymous... hahahahahaha, yes, it was 2 or 3.

    Niki, yes I compost... the lettuce always goes there.

    Jake, I normally freeze cheese, too. I could kick myself for not freezing this batch.

    HS... great idea except the cheese was moldy. :)

  6. Haha. I was wondering and even going to the trouble of trying to work out how many pounds 203 ounces would be (well, it's late on Friday night after a long week - for me sums at this hour ain't all that easy!). 2 or 3 makes much more sense. Unless you had a giant fridge. :)
