Stop wasting, start saving in your Atlanta apartment

Cascade Glen Apartments with spacious chef friendly kitchens

Save money in Atlanta apartments and end food waste at the same time. Several ways to reduce the amount of food thrown out will save you money and make you feel better too. Some dishes are better the next day or even next week. Freezer friendly foods include many leftovers but especially soups and sauces. Keeping fresh fruits in the kitchen helps keep the doctor away and lots of them can be frozen to save waste – grapes, berries and bananas to name a few.

Prevent wasting food at your apartment from the start. Keep perishable items organized by their expiration or “best by” date on the pantry or fridge shelf. It’s true, “one bad apple may spoil the bunch.” Routinely check your produce to ensure one rotting item does not destroy everything. Consume older food first.

Older vegetables are perfect in soups and stews that can also be frozen for further savings. Or blend up fruit for smoothies. Even old bread can be toasted into new croutons or white rice added to a skillet for new fried rice.

Keep smaller leftovers for snacks or ingredients in your next meal. Ice trays are great storage for tiny amounts of stock, lemon or lime juice and wine you can use in future recipes. Finally, before you restock your Atlanta apartment with tasty eats, make sure you to eat all the food you already have. This can be hard, but it can be your biggest money saver too.
