I have a bad habit. We tend to have several open bottles/packages of the same thing. I know, I know. Not a smart thing to do.
The mess on top on the fridge...4 open cereals, 3 bags open chips, 2 boxes open crackers, 3 open packs of cookies, ahhh!!!
2 bottle open syrup, sigh. I didn't bring out the 2 open bottles of Country Bob's or the 3 open bottles of soy sauce
3 open bags of potatoes(yes, this is totally my fault)
So, I combined 2 bottles of the soy sauce, hid the full one. And I combined 2 bags of the potatoes.The syrup will be taken care with french toast tomorrow morning. I combined 2 packs of the cookies(and I'll send one pack of them and a bag of cereal with the crew tomorrow when they spend the night at my mom's). I put up all unopened packages of chips, cereal, crackers, and syrup so the opened ones would be used first.
And the inside of the refrigerator isn't any better...I found 2 opened gallons of milk, 2 open containers of lettuce, and 2 open tubs of butter. ~sigh~
With several years of being frugal, this is definitely NOT how one should be! This just spoils food faster which is definitely not frugal!
