4. Share Extra Food
Consider sharing if you know someone who might enjoy joining you for a dinner or who would welcome your leftovers. You may either ask them over or drop off your excess food.
Find a food bank or shelter in your neighborhood and inquire about the sorts of food they take. If you have additional of these items, just give it to them.
If you want to go the additional mile, consider giving the money you saved by decreasing food waste to a local food bank or shelter so that they may buy the most desperately needed items.
5. Optimize Your Refrigerator and Freezer
Surely you've heard the expression "out of sight, out of mind." This is particularly true with regard to eating.
While having a well-stocked refrigerator might be advantageous, a refrigerator that is too full can lead to food waste.
Assist in preventing food deterioration by keeping your refrigerator organized so that you can plainly view the food and determine when it was bought.
Using the FIFO system, which means "first in, first out," is an effective approach to filling your refrigerator.
When you purchase a fresh carton of blueberries, for instance, put the newer item underneath the older one. This ensures that older food is utilized and not wasted.
