Default Refrigerator day

I tell ya. With 5 people living in the house, the fridge can get full of stuff quickly and of course, stuff spills. Clean and purge, purge and clean. Today was the day.
We used to detail the fridge at the firehouse every Sunday on-duty, which was every three weeks. The kitchen was super-scrubbed every Sunday by a different shift each time.
Hey is that meat or is it cake? When in doubt, throw it out.

I hate fridge day....once per month for us, but I'm pretty good at rotating and purging along the way so it only takes 30 minutes tops.

Often times it's just better to toss the leftover food after the meal is finished rather than packaging it, having it sit in the fridge a week or three and then tossing it.

All in the name of efficiency.

One of the benefits to not having $$$. We tend to use everything, nothing really gets waisted much.

Now...those yogurts that my bride buys, yeah, one or two of those tossed per month. She's constantly trying new varieties, some of them suck!

You must make more than I do, I don't cook food for the landfill to eat.

I'm with you, brother. Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without! We rarely cook one meal unless it's on the weekend, I was meal prepping before that was a term. I see people at work eating fast food 4x a week and then bitching about being broke; of course you're broke, the cashiers at Chik-fil-a and Culvers know you by name!

We do the fridge the night before trash day but I try not to have a lot of food to throw away. My wife's fad diets are the worst,. She buys a bunch of really expensive food, hates it and chucks it.

How do you tell if the yogurt is bad? Isn't it already bad milk?

Yep, Sunday is our "refrigerator clean out" day since they pick up our trash on Monday morning. We are finding it hard to cook for just the two of us. When we had the little vacuums living at home I just cooked and food disappeared. Now I tend to over cook and are starting to do the same thing you are.
