They do come in big bags; you're right.

As the owner of a small tortoise, you have to make a decision. Are *you* going to start eating more lettuce or are you going to throw some away? Your tortoise can't eat all of it before it goes bad. :)

You can use some spring but the diet needs to be more varied than that; it doesn't have enough calcium or fiber.

You've got some good options available to you at the market, you'll probably have to accept that some food will go to waste to feed your tortoise a more balanced diet.
