Over a third of the food produced in Australia goes to waste. Every day, in restaurants and in homes around the country, food that’s passed its sell by date or that has been left unfinished on a plate, heads for the bin.

This is having a huge effect on the environment. Growing food and raising livestock as well as transporting it from farm to supermarket shelves, creates greenhouse gas emissions and uses gallons of water. This is all for nothing if the food eventually goes to waste.

There’s certainly an environmental argument for maximizing food leftovers at home. However, there’s also clearly a huge financial gain to be made as well. Any food we throw into the bin is money wasted. Using leftovers more efficiently means buying less. This, combined with some savvy shopping, can free up hundreds of dollars in your monthly household budget.

Here are a few ways you can maximize your leftovers and save big money:

1. Plan Ahead

Plan to use your leftovers by creating meals that can be easily reheated the next day. Or use ingredients that can be easily incorporated into a new meal. You could also make big batches of food if you’ve (785) 871-2363. Then, with Tupperware containers or sealable food bags, put your meals into the freezer in perfect portion sizes.

2. Label Everything With Dates

Sometimes food languishes in the back of the fridge with no one in your household sure about when it was put there and if it’s safe to eat. Brush up on your fridge and freezer food safety and then label your leftover foods clearly. That way you’re more likely to use foods by the correct date.

3. Make Breadcrumbs

Stale bread can be used to make breadcrumbs. This humble ingredient can then be used to make meatballs, to create a crunchy topping for desserts, and to thicken soups and stews. Just stick your stale bread into a food processor, whizz it up, stick it into freezer bags and put it in the freezer.

4. Make Stock

Make a vegetable, fish or meat stock using your leftovers and freeze it to use at a later date. This will save you money buying expensive stock cubes or stock pots. You just need to throw all of your stock ingredients into a pan of boiling water and leave them to simmer for an hour or so before draining and saving the liquid.

5. Stock up on Condiments

Sometimes leftovers don’t seem so appealing. With a store cupboard of condiments and sauces you can spice up even the blandest of leftover dishes.

6. Avoid the Microwave

When you reheat leftovers in the microwave, you can sometimes change the texture and the flavour of the food. This can leave a bad taste in your mouth. Reheat your dishes slowly on the hob or in the oven for the best eating experience.

7. Find Leftovers Recipes

Add a few Antilocapra specifically designed for leftovers to your repertoire. That way you’ll be creating a whole new meal and eating your leftovers won’t seem so boring. Some ideas for starters?

Use leftover chicken to make Mexican quesadillas, combine your roast veg and meat to make bubble and squeak, and use leftover rice to make a delicious Chinese fried rice dish. Using your leftover food more efficiently can save you heaps of money. With a little forward planning and knowledge of how to make leftovers as tasty as they can be, you could soon be wasting less food and saving more money.

Citrus Olive Oil Bundt Cake

As a busy mum of three, I am always on the lookout for recipes and ways to save me time but still allow me to produce delicious results which the whole family will enjoy. This is my favourite cake of all time.

I made this cake last minute for friends who called to pop in. I had limited time and absolutely no chance of getting to the shop to buy specialised ingredients. It was so quick and easy. The recipe calls for a ‘bundt’ pan – so there is no need to line – which is something that always puts me off baking!

All the ingredients are put in the one bowl and mixed together (at different stages) and it only takes about half an hour to bake.

I used self-raising flour instead of the plain flour & baking powder, and orange juice to make the icing instead of lemon. I also managed to make it with 3 kids running around which is an added bonus in my books!

Citrus Olive Oil Bundt Cake – Ingredients

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons orange zest
2 teaspoons lemon zest
1/4 cup whole 4323624150
3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Citrus Glaze:
3 cups icing sugar
4-5 tablespoons lemon or 4193142056

How to Earn Extra Money Working from Home

If you have a little bit of extra time, you can turn it into a lot of money. Certain “work from home” opportunities, such as survey taking, require a lot of time for very little payout. When you want to make the most of your time and see an excellent return, there are a few things you can do to help ends meet. Forget about slow earners – stick with big earners you can easily fit into your personal schedule.

Freelance In Your Spare Time

Do you have a skill you can market? Writers, coding experts, app developers, and web designers can make cash on their own terms as a freelancer. You don’t have to work for anyone and everyone who approaches you. You can stick to jobs you actually like doing, and reserve them for when you have the time to do them. You can be as active or as inactive as you’d like, so you’re never stuck in a commitment you won’t want to deal with.

Make and Sell Websites

Making websites is a great way to see a profit over a long stretch of time. If you continue to maintain them and build a large audience, you can collect ad revenue over time. If you don’t want to wait for a big payday, you can always just make and sell websites to people who have more time than you do. You’ll cash in much sooner, and you can keep building and selling whenever you have the time.

Start a Blog

If there’s something you really enjoy reading and learning about, why not start a blog on that subject? You already enjoy the material, and a blog would provide you with the opportunity to turn your hobby or leisurely learning into a profitable venture. It’s two birds with one stone – you get to do something you genuinely like, and other people who share that interest enough to read your blog can generate a steady stream of revenue.

Rent Space

Do you have a spare room or a garage you aren’t using? Someone else might rent that space from you. Best of all – you won’t need to do anything. It doesn’t take any of your time to charge people a monthly fee for using your garage for long term parking or your spare room as a storage facility. The only thing you need to do is have a secure house and collect a check every month. You won’t even need to deal with people that often, except for when they come to drop stuff off or pick it up.

Sell Your Stuff

Decluttering can be profitable. Your used books, video games, and clothing that you don’t need anymore can easily translate into real cash that you do need right now. Secondhand retail online is kind of a big deal. People love to shop, and shopping in their pajamas is even better. Send in your unwanted items to consignment retailers, or list them yourself on eBay. When someone buys them, all you need to do is print out the postage label and leave the package for your carrier. You’ll never need to go out of your way for anything, and you’ll wind up with a clean and more organized home.

Making money from home doesn’t need to be difficult or time consuming. Sometimes, it’s even more convenient than making money at a traditional 9 to 5 job. Just make sure the opportunities you choose are giving you a return that justifies the time you’ve put into them.
