My tip for minimizing waste in the kitchen is to keep track of leftovers. First of all, since I know that my family is not good at eating leftovers, I try to cook in such a way that I don't end up with any.
But if I do have some leftovers, I write them down on a small dry-erase board on the fridge, along with the date. Then when we are wondering what to have for lunch, we can easily see what leftovers are available. Including the date makes sure we eat them in a timely manner. I started doing this a month or so ago and it has really helped cut down on the amount of leftovers I have to throw out.
