Learn How Long Food Lasts
I am pretty picky about expired dates on food. As I think everyone should be. I even have the bad habit of when I am in someones home glancing at the date of the item I am eating. Not very often, but It does happen on occasion. Everyone should be aware of the dates of their foods and how to properly store them. I would rather spend the $0.79 at Aldis for a loaf of bread than risk eating bread that "doesn't look right." Or I love the question. Smell this, does it smell bad? If you have to ask, then my guess is it is pretty bad!
I have shared before that I buy my hamburger meat in bulk at Sam's Club, separate into smaller packages and freeze them. A good tip when doing this is make sure you write the date you bought the meat on the package. This way you know exactly how long it will stay fresh.
A friend of mine posted this on Facebook and I wanted to share with everyone. A good little tip from All You for those of us that are unsure of just how long we should keep certain foods.
