    When I'm doing any work on my computer I've been setting a timer for 40-45 minutes. Then getting up and walking for at least 15 or doing some form of exercise. It truly helps.

    Just came in to have my daily "Sparkville" fix & saw where (on Frosty's page) you had talked about putting older products to the front on pantry shelves = they get used up first. I have done that for years with fair success; however, in our pre-empty nesting days, there were times when other family members would mess up my system. What I finally started doing is, after washing cans & jars immediately upon bringing them into our home, I would write the use by date on the front label, so there is no missing it = thus, very helpful in knowing, without a doubt, what should be used first. These days my system does not get messed up = my darling MrV & I are the only ones using it; however, I still write the use by date on each item, so I am aware of when products need to be used up & plan meals using that information.

    You are so right in that the "stockboys" in grocery stores are not always good about rotating the goods & bringing forward the older stock & placing the new items in the back. And they are not good about removing outdated goods from the shelves. I am forever finding outdated items on the shelves (in all departments) & I take them up to costumer service = for all the good it does. emoticon The latest was a can with a May 2016 sell by date & it was placed right up front = I believe that the hope was that someone would pick it up without looking at the sell by date. I always look at the date on each item.

    God bless!

    I always look at the expiration dates on foods, especially the things in the dairy case. Often the yogurt only has a day or so till use by is up! I try to rotate my canned goods when I put them in the pantry-problem comes if DH helps me! I don't always get it changed! Hate to tell him he isn't helping.

    My biggest problem is the freezer as he puts things in there usually and always grabs what is on top. I guess I have to take that over too but I do like to get a bit of help as I do all the shopping!!

    So happy you write that date on there-sure helps to know when you need to use something by. I really hate pitching food. I am trying to buy less and it shows in my grocery bill! If I use up what I have on hand it should cut the food budget dramatically for a couple of months.-at least I hope so!
