No one actually tries to waste food, but sometimes things just get forgotten. Maybe that bag of grapes got buried under your salad greens and became slimy before you could get to it (ahem, guilty). Or perhaps that lunch you packed for work was shelved in favor of going out for lunch with your coworkers (also guilty).
While it's definitely a bummer to throw your hard-earned cash into the trash, the implications of food waste are so much worse than the money aspect. It happens to everyone, but we can and should be working on improving our food waste situation. It's time to make food saving a priority.
