I didn't officially join this thread, but I have been semi following along and also eating down my food since the spring when I discovered MMM. I am SINK, so there is no one to blame but me for the stockpiling of food. Well, I do blame the temptations that Costco fills their aisles with, but still my fault.
My fridge is now bare bones for at least a month, and as if by magic, I haven't wasted a bit of food due to only putting into it what I know I can reasonably eat. I am now comfortable letting staples run out, no milk and eggs for a week? No biggie, I will just eat something else. I used to throw out spoiled milk, yogourt, eggs etc. on a regular basis.
One epiphany that I have had is that my issues lies with the fact that although I love cooking, I hate cooking on weeknights. My deep freezer is finally getting bare, but I have visions of filling it back up again in the fall with MEALS, instead of INGREDIENTS. So, I have rounded up a ton of slow cooker and once a month cooking recipes and I will start later on this month putting this plan in place. I already do this with lasagne, so the concept should work out for me. Silly really that I haven't done this in the past.
