Food Waste Friday: Instant Coffee Instant Trash

[stextbox id=”info”]Today (and hopefully every Friday), I’m joining The Frugal Girl and other bloggers out there in posting my food waste photos within the past week, calling it Food Waste Friday. It is hoped that by sharing pictures of the food I have wasted, it would motivate me to reduce wastage as much as possible. I will try my very best to participate each week, and hopefully there will be weeks where I will be able to happily report that there was 0% wastage! :)[/stextbox]

This week, I’m pleased as punch to say that my fridge has been kept up to date and clean!  I now make an extra effort to put my groceries and produce as soon as I bring them into the home, so the perishables go straight into the fridge, while the other stuff either goes to the pantry to their respective homes.  I still have some stuff with which to cook this week, and I will be doing the grocery shopping probably tomorrow.

However, since I checked my fridge and there’s no wastage this week, I looked into my kitchen cabinets and pantry instead.

This is the unfortunate victim I found:

An almost-full packet of instant kopi-O (instant black coffee) sachets, which had gone past its expiration date.  We’re not coffee drinkers at home, and I think this was bought some time back for some of our occasional guests who are.  I guess with all the moving, we forgot about it.

Have you cleaned out your fridge/pantry and/or kitchen this week?
