• Has your freezer become a "disorganised food black hole" asks the Stop Food Waste Programme. If so, the programme, run by the Environmental Protection Agency suggests this is where you start so that you stop wasting food.

We can save up to €700 a year by not wasting food. Keep a list of what's in there on the side of the freezer, and use a 'first in, first out' policy. Other tips include cooking double to freeze half for later. For details, see: www.stopfoodwaste.ie
