Let’s keep our refrigerators organized. Take a look right now. Is there too much food in there? Place like items together. Place food that will keep longer in the back. Place food that needs to be eaten sooner up closer to the front. Label leftovers that are in nondescript containers so they don’t get lost. If fresh produce has a blemish, just cut it off to put in compost, and save the rest to eat today. Don’t be afraid of mixing leftovers to make something new: soup or scrambled with eggs, for example. If we really can’t eat it today but it will spoil soon, throw it in the freezer for a future meal. The tip is “refrigerator awareness”, catch it before something goes bad. Don’t shop again until you’ve eaten what needs to be appreciated.
