Tesco have publicised  their latest shocking food waste figures for the first time.  As much as 68 per cent of salad sold in bags is thrown out and 35 per cent of it is thrown out in our homes.  Can we really afford to be throwing food (money) out every week.

Tesco at least are going to do something about such waste.  They intend to put an  end to multi-buys on large bags of salad for instance and is developing a healthier approach by smaller bags in a bid to reduce the amount of waste.  The retailer also declared that as much as 40 per cent of apples are wasted and just under half of their bakery items are thrown into the bin.

We are all guilty of heading to the shops without checking what we need and buying extra because there is a special deal on.  Especially when you see such offers as buy two and get the third item free or buy one and get the second item at half price.  We think we are getting a bargain so we fall for it.  But its only a bargain if you need them and use them.

If the definition of madness is to keep doing the same thing again and again and expect a different result, then we must be all mad.  Why do we continue to over shop and make the same mistake every week in an attempt to save money.  If you throw out food at the end of every week then you are literally throwing your money in the bin.
