Stop Wasting Food To Save Money
      Week 3: What To Eat First

Having a strategy for using things up before they spoil is another key to stopping food waste. This entails using the most perishable items first. Since not everyone in the household may know which items need to be used up first, you might want to use sticky notes to indicate those that need to be used ASAP.

It's also important to take a second look at what you buy. For example, if you buy broccoli, buy only the florettes if you throw away the stalks. If you buy the stalk and the florettes, eat the stalks as well. They taste just as good as the florettes. The same goes for beet greens. Saute with bacon and garlic salt for a tasty and healthy vegetable dish or chop them up and add them to omelets or soup. An old but indispensible cookbook for utilizing the entirety of a vegetable is The Victory Garden Cookbook published in 1982 and still one of the best cookbooks of its kind ever published.

Even foods that seem past their prime can have a second life. Overripe bananas can be used to make smoothies or banana bread. Freeze them until you need to use them. Melons and berries can also be frozen for this purpose as well. Vegetables that aren't rotten or mushy can be used to make a vegetable broth that is the basis for many other recipes. Store in the freezer for use at a later date. Stale bread can be dried out completely and grated for breadcrumbs, cubed for stuffing or home-made croutons.

Before you throw away a food item, do a Google search to find out if there is a way to use it that you haven't thought of. Even soured milk  has many uses.
