Today’s thrifty living tip is to stop throwing money in the trash. You read that correctly. I am guilty of buying perishables that never get eaten. Fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, cheese, yogurt, etc. It never fails I will buy items that just don’t get eaten before they go bad. I don’t do it too often, but I’m still throwing a few bucks away each time. Sale items are the biggest temptation. It’s not a good deal if you won’t use eat it in a timely manner. One method I now use is by keeping track of which items were getting thrown out. Now I rarely have to throw out bad food.
