The recent Gladware ad claims that American households throw out $500 of food per year. I thought that sounded pretty extreme and checked it out. The best article I could find generally agreed with the claim.
Having recently cleaned and defrosted my fridge for the first time in 3 years and only finding the dregs of a ketchup bottle to throw out, I'm just wondering how much you think you throw out per year? Do you think inedible items such as banana peels should be included?
I guess I'm just a bit perplexed because my SO and I spend less than that a month on food.
