Audrey says:

Since I share a refrigerator with roommates, it is especially easy for me to forget about ingredients long enough for them to spoil.  To help me remember and encourage me to plan meals, I keep a list of perishable food on my computer desktop. Then, I plan my next meal based on the ingredients or few on my list that are closest to spoiling.  

Right now, the list has avocado, red bell pepper, celery, and sweet potatoes.  I'm thinking about making an egg frittata topped with avocado, your sweet potato and black bean tacos, or potato soup.  If I have multiple ingredients that need to be used up, I do an internet or Pinterest search with the names of the ingredients and the word "recipe" to see if there is a dish that can combine them all.

It sounds like Audrey’s strategy would make an excellent smartphone App. I have the same problem: noticing ingredients I could have used or finding ingredients nearly expired.
