Shop more frequently and don't buy too much — that way you will use up what you buy and won't have stuff building up or going off.

I don't particularly like celery but I have a pearl barley and lamb shank soup recipe and I don't mess with it in any way and whilst I could by just the strips and no leafage, it is much nicer with the celery tops to be used, so whilst I still buy a whole celery, I make two batches of soup and freeze the soup once cooked and with the rest of the celery I blanch it, drain it and place the right amount into ziplock or small freezer bags and freeze it so next time I want to make this soup I have plenty of celery packs I can use.

In answer to a comment made to grow your own veggies, I do just a few like corn and beans but we as farmers are at our busiest during vegie growing times and sometimes it is very hard not to loose vegies exposed to allot of heat when we're away from home for 12-14 hours a day so people need to be more retired or even semi retired to be able to do that successfully.

Carol Jones - thanks for the info re The Swag - I will be investigating as I am hesitant to use paper towel all the time...I know you can compost it, but I am not in a living situation where that is possible, so hate adding to waste.
