Without fail I buy a box of cherry tomatoes and sweet potatoes only to throw them out the next week.

You could dice and freeze and use them in recipes- or even freeze whole and then roast them
That’s what I do if I don’t finish my peppers

Grapes from Walmart. I'm always forgetting how much we don't like them...

Yes I know there's ways to use them but I can't be the only one who's always picking up items that no one likes at home and telling myself that this week it will get eaten.

Sweet potatoes last weeks you shouldn't need to throw them out. Nutritionally they have so much bang for your buck.

Cherry tomatoes are delicious if roasted with salmon (or any other fish) or chicken parts. The cherry tomatoes fall apart and create a sauce and there is still the collapsed tomatoes which have a delicious roasted flavor.

Cook the sweet potatoes - make into soup which can be frozen - mash. Use as a more nutritious Shepherd's Pie as the topping. Just nuke them and serve like any other baked potato.

We usually eat everything. We might not finish it all but we eat most. Ex- fresh parsley basil thyme… or even grapes or a bag of oranges

Sit beside me because blueberries never go to waste. Nor do cherries or lichees.

Bakery items.
We always have leftover rugelach, cookies etc that go stale. And it's not even something like produce that I'd push myself to use in a recipe; I know it's not healthy so I'm not trying to use it up.

Nothing! My kids devour everything.

Although for a while my kids were eating plenty of bananas, so I bought a big bunch every week and it disappeared. It took me a couple of weeks to realize that suddenly almost no one was eating them anymore...the first week or two I figured it was just a random coincidence that so many of them got brown beyond salvaging by the time I realized they were still there. Now I only buy a few at a time, and they get eaten.

I'm like this too, it's called wishful thinking...like this this week my kids are gonna eat healthy stuff! Crazy tho isn't it? Makes me feel like a good Mom tho, if they don't eat it, it's their problem, right?
