Gallery: How to Save Food and Money with a Fridge Triage Box

 

STEP 3:

Tape or glue your sign to the front of your box, and place the whole thing in a central location in your fridge where it's highly visible. Then, start placing perishable foods near their expiration date inside so that everyone knows those are the things that need to be eaten first. You'll be surprised at how well this basic visual cue works!

MATERIALS:

- a large box (a clean shoebox works great, especially if it’s colorful and eye-catching) - plastic wrap - a piece of paper
