Sadly it happens way too often. Or we just couldn’t finish what we had bought. The kids will want something in the store but won’t eat it once we get home.

Whenever I buy fresh food I always eat it.  I don't like wasting money.

I say about 60% of the time I forget there's fresh food that I just bought.

Fruits and vegetables never seem to go to waste in my house.  We have salad almost every night and we all take fruit to go with our lunch.  Bread is another story.

My husband is constantly buying way too much celery for some reason and it always starts to go bad. Have you ever heard of anyone being afraid they were going to run out of celery of all things? Milk, maybe, if you have kids, but not celery.

Sometimes, I try and keep fresh food towards the front of the refrigerator, but that does not always work out since the hubby makes a mess looking for things in the frig, and recently bought fresh food can get pushed behind other things; out of sight many times out of mind; I am trying not to over purchase so that the frig is not packed so tightly.

I HATE THAT, but I haven't done that in a while. Bread goes bad for me.

With some vegetables that I get, used once or twice and then forget to use them for days.

I always do that! Especially bagged salad or a head of lettuce.  :neutral: The bagged salad goes bad faster.

I'm pretty conscientious about using up food. Drives me nuts that the rest of my family is not and a lot of food gets thrown out often. I feel like gee, I wish I had so much money that I could literally throw it away too..

not very often,,  I usually only buy what we can eat in 2 or 3 days. I love fresh food and fruit.  I can go to the store which is 2 minutes away so we don't buy alot of things at once.

We try not to, but it happens sometimes. Mostly because of me. I'm currently pregnant, and have the strangest aversions when it comes to food. Like, we will be in the grocery store, and decide that steak is good to have, but then for some reason, when it comes time to cook it, I won't want it. It happens with pork and chicken too. But before my pregnancy, I wouldn't even bat an eye at not eating those foods. I'm a meat and potatoes kinda girl! But there is something about this pregnancy that makes me not want meat sometimes. I still try to eat it, since I know meat contains a lot of nutrients that are healthy for the baby. But every once in a while, I just have to pass it up!
