Preventing Food Waste
Eating high quality, nutrient dense foods is a major priority for our family.  We value our food and strive to have almost no food waste.

Here are a few tips for preventing food waste:

  1. Plan your meals based upon the foods that you already have in your fridge, freezer and pantry, placing a high priority on creating meals from the foods (like fresh produce) that will soon spoil if not consumed.
  2. Eat your leftovers.
  3. Have leftover makeovers – creating new meals from boring leftovers!
  4. Freeze foods that you don’t think you’ll consume before they spoil.
  5. Divide leftover casseroles and soups into 1 portion servings and freeze. These are wonderful homemade convenience foods that save money!
  6. Share food with friends and family if you purchased more than you can use.
  7. Serve smaller portions, especially to children. If the initial portion is consumed, you can serve more!
  8. Have a clean out the fridge lunch/dinner. Eat remaining leftovers and produce that needs to be used. These type of meals are fun, especially for kids!

Cleaning the bathroom, this has to be the most exciting project of the month, right? It is a job that has to be done though even though it’s far from fun.

Day 10 Project : Clean the bathroom and take out the trash.

Since we decluttered in the bathroom yesterday, today’s project really is quite simple, we’re just cleaning the bathroom, a task that we do on a regular basis anyways!

The first thing I did was remove the trash and then proceeded to clean the sink and mirrors, scrub the tub {the chore I hate the most}, clean the toilet and sweep. I must admit that my toilet/toilet area has been cleaned almost daily for the past few months since Paxton has been potty training and is now pottying by himself mostly!

Isn’t it nice to have a clean bathroom? Too bad it’ll only last a day or two {or maybe a few hours around here!}
