I am so tired of throwing out food. I throw out too many vegetables, fruits and some other spoiled foods. I buy what I think will get eaten and a lot of times it doesn't get ate and in the garbage it goes.
I was shopping once a week, but obviously I buy tooo much and we aren't eating it, and with the price of food....I was thinking about going every couple of days to get just what I need. I think I can be disciplined enough to do that?
Anyone else do it this way?

I do the exact opposite, I buy in advance when it's on sale and store it until we need it. Freeze things until you use them. Use the guidelines here to know what can be frozen as is and what needs to be blanched or handled differently first: http://www.uga.edu/nchfp/how/freeze.html Also, you can cook some things in advance and reheat through the week and that can extend their life. Make sure you store properly - different produce needs different conditions in terms of temp and moisture, and some people throw everything in the fridge when a lot should really be left out and vice versa.
