2) Waste less
Nothing is as frustrating as throwing away food simply because you forgot about it! To avoid food waste, get into the habit of reorganizing your fridge every week by placing anything that needs to be consumed quickly in clear view and anything with a later expiration date near the back. Another trick? Before putting a product in your grocery cart, take a look at its expiration date and choose one with a later use-by date.
An anti-food waste app
Are you familiar with FoodHero? Thanks to a partnership with IGA, this app lets you save money, all while reducing food waste. How it works: the app gives you access to all the products on special or with expiration dates that are fast approaching. You can then purchase these products directly via the app and pick them up at an IGA or IGA Extra store near you.

Use your over-ripe or bruised fruit
Store all your over-ripe or bruised fruit in a bin. Once the bin is full, place the fruit in a large pot, add a bit of water, and bring to a boil. Let simmer over low heat until you achieve a compote-like texture. Ideal for homemade applesauce!
