Refrigerator List To Reduce Food Waste

To reduce the amount of food waste in my refrigerator, I keep a running list on my fridge door. I use a pad of paper with a magnet on the back, place it on my refrigerator, and list foods that needs to be used up, such as leftovers and "odd" items (foods I seldom buy), along with which drawer has what fruits that need to be eaten. Without a list, I had too much food thrown away because it got pushed to the back of my fridge and had gone bad or simply just forgotten about.


Keeping a list is a reminder to all my family members of what can/needs to be eaten and sometimes the location in the fridge of where the food can be found. Keeping a running list has worked well in reducing food waste in my house.
