That stale baguette has seen better days, too. Yes, you're a food waster. And you're not alone. In fact, we each waste an average of 20 pounds of food every month, says the Natural Resources Defense Council. A whopping 40 percent of food in the U.S. ends up in the garbage, it adds, costing $165 billion each year.

The report suggests that buy one, get one free campaigns encourage overbuying and waste. So how can we change our wasteful ways? Cue technology: These apps make it easy to save food -- and money.
