Recording: Financial Sense¢: How to Save $1,500 Annually by Reducing Food Waste Sept 21, 2023

We were excited to invite you to this past month’s edition of the Financial Sense¢ program, where we delved into a topic that affects us all: food waste. According to a December 2022 Fortune article, it was revealed that Americans squandered approximately one-third of the food they purchased. Shockingly, this equated to the average family discarding a staggering $1,500 worth of unused food annually.
In an effort to make a positive impact on both our wallets and the environment, our latest Financial Sense¢ program focused on practical strategies to avoid food waste. We believed that together, we could make a significant change by implementing some straightforward yet effective techniques.



During the program MOe mentioned some books and wanted to write them down so you could find them.
