Does anyone else feel guilty when you have a fridge full of partially used up ingredients and the only two options on hand are to figure out a way to use them up all at once or to toss them?

I’m not sure why guilty is the knee-jerk response. The half open can of tomatoes or leftover onion are not going to start yelling at me from the trash can upon seeing the inner lining of the garbage bag, and the green pepper with wrinkly skin is not going to suddenly sprout a mouth and eyes and accost me (but, gosh, how terrifying does that sound).
