To reduce food waste, plan a weekly menu

Your challenge for today, or the next time you grocery shop, is to figure out 4-5 dinners to cook for the week and make a list based on the ingredients needed. Shopping with a list of exact ingredients will reduce the amount of food you end up throwing away.

Grabbing a bunch of cilantro or a couple of leeks in case you might need them contributes to a diverse and well-stocked fridge, but may backfire if you have no need for the cilantro and leeks before they rot.
