    Planning Create a Weekly Meal Plan
    An average American throws out about 240 lbs of food per year. The average family of four spends $1,500 a year on food that they throw out. Does this surprise you? Where would you rather use this money? How has meal planning helped you avoid waste?

    Planning has strengthened an awareness of using leftovers first each day.
