I thought, I attempted, I failed…

Hey Y’all!

I bet you’re wondering what this blog post is going to be about with such an unusual title. Well like my home page says, this blog is about the good and the bad. So this is one of the fails. While being sick I decided to find ways to make my life easier with meal prepping for the week.

Now Pinterest is filled with ideas on this but one stuck out to me.ย  I thought that it would help me save those veggies that always seem to get forgotten about and moldy. The original blog post is here.

I thought to my self, this looks perfect! Buy some Tupperware, label them, and have a salad bar in my fridge too! No more wasted food, easy to find labels, and healthy, easy meals. Well that’s in a perfect world. Here is how it really went…

IMG_4403I bought my Tupperware (on sale with Target’s Cartwheel app!) and I washed them.

IMG_4404 IMG_4405Next I pulled out my handy dandy Brother label maker and made labels for my main staples. Now as I have previously stated, gluten free pasta gets hard and crunchy in the fridge. This is how I found out that tidbit. I did pasta, tomatoes, cucumbers, and celery to start with. This is mostly because that is what was on hand.

IMG_4406 IMG_4407So I prepped my veggies. I washed them and cut them up into the size I would eat normally and stacked them away in their new homes.

And that’s where they stayed.

And molded.

So in the end I lost more veggies by cutting them up and packing them up in this fashion. I am sure for a family this would work better since there are more people likely to snack on things. However, for a single person, it was a total flop. So there it is, my first fail that has been posted on the blog.


Thanks Y’all. Stop by again to see what is going on!
