Frugal Friday Another Banana Tip

We don't really have issues here about wasting food. I like to think it's because my expectations have always been that it's disrespectful to waste, but the truth could just as easily be that we're all good eaters. We like food.

However there are exceptions. Like when the bananas at the market are HUGE and no one wants that much banana in his/her cereal. So we might try to get someone to share. And there were times that if no one would, we'd simply forgo the banana.

Well, no more.

We simply slice off as much of a banana as we'd like to eat. Right through the peel. This is what was left of this particular banana.

After a day or so this is what the end looks like.

To use the rest of the banana, we simply slice a very small sliver off.

And the rest of the banana is as beautiful and fresh tasting as ever!

Wow, who knew?

Great tip! I try to buy bananas on the smaller side for my toddler son, but of course there are some weeks where it just isn't gonna happen! Sometimes they are huge!

Thanks for sharing!
