Use up all your fridge contents first before restocking it

There used to be times in the past ,many years ago when i would buy tons of stuff when I would go grocery shopping.
Come home and stuff up the fridge.
As days passed on, the most frequently used stuff would get over and i would rush to the grocery store to replenish my stocks. What I would forget is the other stuff sitting at the back of the fridge.
The backfridge is a goldmine.But then things would get so stuffed up there that I would finally remove all semi rotting stuff from the back and throw them away.
What a waste of food.This food cost money. This food was produced from resources. Never waste food.No matter how much money we earn or have in the bank , nothing affords us , the humans,the capacity to create our own food.WE ARE NOT AS SELF SUFFICIENT LIKE THE PLANTS. Coz, unlike the plants, we don't do photosythesis. We are dependants. We depend on the plants to make food out of sunlight and dirt...hmmm.We are not "creators", we are just consumers.
Over the years I have grown wiser and more responsible too.I still buy tons of stuff, but then once the front is empty, I start looking in the back and figure out ways to use them in recipes. After a good week of so of this fridge scavenging, finally the fridge gets empty and oh so tidy looking.
This is when i go grocery shopping again.
Saves me money, prevents food wastage and I eat a better variety of dishes instead of obsessing on the same old ones I am crazy about.

Reuse your yogurt or coffee tubs as storage containers.Saves the envo !

First off, if you buy ground coffee in tins You might notice that the coffee comes in metal containers with plastic lids. Once the coffee is over, most of us throw off the tins, the lid and all. This increases garbage load.
Many of us also buy icecreams or yogurt that comes in tubs. Not the papertubs.Some of the yogurt and icecream comes in large thick plastic tubs with a neat fitting lid.
Again, most of us throw these tubs away too. More plastic load on the environment.
The best way is to make use of these plastic tubs for storing dry or wet food. I use the coffee tins for storage of sugar or salt, flour etc.
I use the plastic tubs to store my homemade soyyogurt or homemade creme ets in the refrigerator.
Reusing stuff and using them for long definitely makes sure you are helping in some way.
Some of you might say, "oh, these measures are for poor people who cannot afford to buy nice pretty lil storage containers for the kitchen. I am so rich, I am not going to reuse."
well, " no matter how rich you are ,Unless you are able to immediately make that platic garbage wastes into biodegradable substances, you are still answerable. Your money doesn't make the plastic vanish , does it? So, well, you are not allowed to increase the plastic burden on the earth as much as a poor person cannot"
Be responsible, do your bit.
