An Odd Habit

I've started acquiring odd habits.

For example, this month I kept track of our food waste. A goal of mine is to have as little food shrink as possible, so to challenge myself I made a list to track our progress this month.

In September I threw away:
  • 4 small plums
  • 1/8 container of mint chocolate chip ice cream
  • a loaf of mistake no-meat meatloaf (don't ask)
  • 1/6 container of spinach leaves
  • 1 burnt pancake (oops)
  • 4 slices moldy cheese
  • 1 old advacado
  • 12 very shriveled raspberries
  • 1 peach
  • 1 serving of very gross leftovers (yuck)
It was actually less then I thought it would be. Maybe thinking about what was in the fridge helped me eat things as I noticed they were going bad? Anyway, my plan is to learn about the food we are tossing and try to save money the next time around. Or maybe start composting like my parents and a few of my neighbors?

What about you? Ever kept track?
