When I was living in Grand Rapids, one of my co-workers invited our group of young ladies over for some appetizers. Not only did I admire the delicious dips and her gorgeous custom-made bookshelves (I think a family member had a carpentry hobby), but this one little passing comment she made when someone opened her fridge:
She keeps a bowl or coffee can in her fridge to collect any produce scraps. Once it's full, she'll bag it up and throw it away, rather than letting it sit in her kitchen trash and stink up the entire room (or luring bugs).
I thought this was a great idea, especially for those of us without a sink disposal. Michael and I have kept a large bowl tucked on our bottom shelf that has been great for collecting our scraps that we'll take out once a week or so.
