It’s Friday Guys – My turn once more to host Food Waste Friday!
Each week since March 2008, in order to motivate her to waste less food, Kristen The Frugal Girl, has posted a picture of any food that has gone bad over the last seven days. She found this embarrassing practice so helpful, to her, that she invited other bloggers to post their own photos, and Food Waste Friday was born.
I started participating in October 2010 and have found, that 2-years on, the amount of food I waste is minimal. In fact every Friday, as part of my No Waste Tastes Great routine, I account (and devise a plan) for all my potential food waste as well as confessing to any items that I failed to save.
Kristen has kindly asked me to host Food Waste Friday, alternate weeks (when she doesn’t post herself), and her initial invite for everyone to join in is cordially extended here!
I would have liked to have titled this post
“Here’s To A No Waste 2013″…but already just 4 days in I have waste…

It’s not the worst I’ve seen. But there is waste. The fridge’s bottom shelf has some gravy left over from Christmas day that needs to go. And the yogurts are certainly past their prime.
You may notice my homemade Christmas Pud has taken up residence in the fridge once more. It didn’t get eaten. In fact a lot of storecupboard items didn’t get eaten. The flu hit Chez Wright, and rather than indulging this holiday, I lost 9lbs.
I’m anticipating once I get stuck in I may uncover some cupboard waste. The Kids are back at school next Monday and I’m finally feeling more human, so a cupboard declutter is top priority.
Before I hand you over to Kristen, I’d like to wish one and all a very Happy New Year.
Let’s see how low we can get that food waste this year!
