Survival Tip #97
Don’t Waste Food
This should be self-explanatory, but since we waste so much stuff as a society I figured I would make a point of this. We often throw away food and beverages before we’ve used every last bit of them. I am just a guilty as the rest of you, but in the Primal Age the effort to get these last bits will be worth it. Take a jar of peanut butter for example, based on its design there are limited ways of actually using all of it. (Some people suggest dropping ice cream or milk in…it’s kinda delicious) If you find yourself lucky enough to have a jar of peanut butter in the Primal Age, you better cut that thing open and scrape every last ounce of it off the plastic.
The second way we tend to waste a ton of food, is by not paying attention to expiration dates. 40% of food in the U.S. goes uneaten each year. This could cost you your life in the Primal Age. The most important way to store your food is by expiration. Fresh food that will go bad should be eaten first. Stuff that will last for years should be saved until it is needed.
