Episode 57 – Organising to reduce food waste

basket with food in kitchen

In this podcast, Lesley and Ingrid chat about National Organising Week and the focus on decreasing food waste through decluttering and organising.

There is a large focus at the moment on decreasing food waste. Most food waste comes from a lack of organisation when shopping or meal planning. We discuss things you can put in place to avoid wasting food unnecessarily in your home.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What is APDO and what is National Organising Week?
  • It's always best to shop with a list.
  • Really focus on whether the pros of bulk buying outweigh the cons. 
  • Focus on visibility and accessibility when you are organising your food cupboards. 
  • Check out Podcast 54 where Mylene Houle Morency talks all about meal planning in detail.
  • Check out our meal planning checklist within the free resources.
  • Make sure you schedule in a leftovers day.
  • Periodically eat out the contents of your freezer.
