Rakeela and I just cleaned out the fridge.

...Dear gods that was disgusting. But now the fridge went from full to mostly empty, and we'll try not to let it get that bad again.

Mostly, I feel guilty about wasting the food. Wasting nearly a refrigerator-full of food is embarassing. I don't care about the money, I care about the waste. At least it's not as bad as some, I suppose; it's "only" two thirds of a refrigerator, in one year. This is apparently a better-than-average rate, relative to what I remember from my parents' habits in St. Louis.

Yeah, I never like the food waste either. 'tis why I only pick up exactly what I'm going to eat within a few days, and anything else I keep around is usually canned or dried so it lasts longer. Thus, little to no waste. ^__^

We always have plans to eat it in time, but it sometimes doesn't work out...

Aye, this is true. ^^ It helps that I'm only feeding myself I suppose. I don't keep much of anything around really. ^^() Lots of take-away!

Do you have a compost bin, or a worm bin? We usually get through all our food, but the only things that actually get thrown out are bones. Everything else gets composted.

It's actually against the regulations of this apartment complex, which explicitly requires full use of their garbage facilities- and they have no compost bin, just garbage and recycling.

That's made of utter fail on their part. Hmm--maybe a stealth worm bin?

It doesn't help that I don't know how to set such a thing up- although I could learn; I suppose it comes down to laziness, and not wanting to push my luck too much. I'm on very good terms with the landlady, but I'd just as soon not stress that relationship...
