Banish "Aspirational" Foods
The sun-dried tomato tapenade you planned to serve at the dinner party you didn't get around to hosting? The hearty, dry-bean soup mix with instructions that sound like a drag? "Let it go," says Walsh. "Anything you don't use regularly, or have immediate plans to use, is in danger of being wasted." Pack all edible nonperishables into a box marked "donate" and drop it off at a local food bank. Visit FoodPantries.org to find a soup kitchen or food bank near you.
