How much food do you purchase and not consume?

Poll Results: 5,270 votes
Very little. There is the occasional toss but not much.
Some. I forget to keep track of expiration dates and things go bad.
None. Everything I buy is consumed and then the rest is composted.
Tons. I could be under house arrest for years!

Not much.

It helps with the guilt when there is something to "toss" that it get tossed in the compost rather than the landfill.

Almost none, the chickens get most stuff that starts to go off.
