More often than not these days, vegetables and sometimes fruit are arriving into the house without expiry dates on them. Whilst this is fine (as it stops them being thrown away before they are actually ‘off’) I like to know which order to use the refrigerated fruit and veg.
When the groceries arrived this morning, I used the back of the accompanying paperwork to write little tags with today’s date on and stick them onto each item.
This method will work better for me and the rest of the family as it will stop us all wasting things when we’re not sure how many days they’ve been there. No one in the house has to ask me either which is a bonus.
Anything I don’t use that’s really out of date or looks bad will go in the food waste caddy as normal.
That’s another little system put in place for my 2020 challenge.
How do you decide when to throw away your non-dated items?
