Nowadays when I open my fridge, my eyes immediately go to the bright green box, and I just grab whatever is in there. It’s actually kind of fun trying to come up with a recipe that combines as many of the ingredients in there as possible too. Once I’ve consumed the high-risk items, I populate the triage box with other food that is nearing its shelf life. I haven’t yet run the numbers but I can already tell that I’m saving money and wasting less because I don’t have to throw as many containers in the garbage as I usually do. The box also helps curb the issue of buying an extra carton of milk when you already had one that was just hidden behind other stuff and it keeps my fridge looking tidy too.
So do you think making a fridge triage box will help you and your family stop wasting food and money? Or do you think this idea is a total waste of time? Tell me in the comments!
