More Food Used Up

January 19th, 2017 at 05:13 pm

I made tuna casserole tonight. We haven't had that in years! It came up recently when we had a friend over and my husband seemed very interested in having it after it was mentioned. I did have those two cans of tuna to use up so I bought the other ingredients to make it. Of course, now I have extra noodles and peas!

My husband made a lot of salad this week, and I haven't been eating as much of it as I should as I've been eating other leftovers. I'm starting to realize we buy more food than we can eat. I think he is starting to notice it too. I'm going to try to have a leftover night once or twice a week. And we do freeze extras with some frequency so that does help avoid food waste.

My daughter and I got our hairs cut today. Smile Cost was $30 with tip at Great Clips. I think I got mine last cut in November, but I sometimes go much longer. My daughter has a very short cut, so I'm taking her once a month now! A big change compared to getting her long hair cut two or three times a year.

A check for $26.40 arrived at our home today. It was from the overage charged by the oral surgeon when my daughter had her wisdom teeth removed. The check is payable to her! I paid, but I suppose since she is 19 they figured it was hers? I decided I would just send it to her though and she can keep it. She's a college student...probably can use the cash!

    I'm trying to use up leftovers too. I think this month is the best we've been, I've only thrown out leftovers once.

    We hardly ever have food to use up, we pretty much only get the bare minimum. Sunday-Tuesday the fridge and pantry are full of food, by Friday there's not a lot there! We have so many supermarkets nearby I figure why bother overbuying? If we need one or two things it's so easy to get.

    I think I usually buy too much food too. I honestly love the almost empty fridge on grocery shopping day. I'll bet your daughter will be excited for the $$$
