Changing Ways...

Have you seen the Quizno's commercial where the lady takes a five dollar bill off the wall and shoves it into her mouth? Lately I feel like that's what I've been doing. Please don't get me wrong, I know that food costs money. Believe me, I am well aware of this, but now when I start emptying my fridge I am actually thinking in terms of money. Instead of "this is nasty", I am thinking "this is nasty and I'm throwing away three dollars worth of tomatoes". It's having a revolutionary effect. I am actually eating what I buy. Please don't pass out. My normal way of buying groceries starts out with me being full of good intentions of cooking, then mid-week abandoning the idea and eating out. It's been this way since my yester-years of college. Maybe it's because gas is so expensive, food is getting costly, or the natural disasters around the world have made me pause and take a look at what I waste and how others have nothing. Who knows, but now instead of throwing away 47 cents worth of old M&M's, I am going to eat them.


  1. I would totally eat the 47 cents of M& Ms. But I understand what you mean, especially with produce because it goes bad so fast. I try really hard to use everything up.

  2. I wonddr about the same things. I think it is horrible that we spend twice as much on groceries.

  3. Good for you. I should do the same. However, no amount of wasted money will convince me to eat some of the things I have sitting in my fridge. :)
