Throwing away food
Do you throw away food every day? Once a week? Throwing away food in a world where people are starving is one problem. But you also are throwing away money.
Almost $1 trillion worth of food is thrown away or wasted globally every year. Americans alone waste or throw away about 40% of their food annually. Conservatively speaking, that may be the equivalent of throwing $600 a year in the garbage.
Budget your food spending to ensure that you don’t overbuy. If three people are coming over for dessert, get a smaller cake. If you’re planning to cook a roast for 10, consider that most won’t eat more than a quarter-pound of meat.

Smarter cryptocurrency investmentsThe stock market crash of 2008 was the catalyst for his journey into alternatives.

What finally convinced him to dip a toe into digital currencies was seeing that they followed familiar price patterns that could be analyzed and successfully acted on. Now he shares those insights with subscribers to the Crypto Wealth Protocol.
