What'S The Date Opened On That Container Of Cheese?



When I buy some cottage cheese,sour cream, or another container of something to eat,after I open it, I mark with a permanent black marker the date OPENED and label it on the top of the container so I know HOW LONG that particular container of food has been opened. I DON'T want to visit the Emergency Room of a hospital because I couldn't smell something and ate something bad.[Right now I have Sinuitis --blockage in the nose- so it limits my sense of smell].

  • God point, I know my mil has old, old stuff in her fridge, like you said, who knows how many times older people especially are eating bad food. Just wanted to mention I store my dairy stuff like that upside down, supposed to keep the air out, so it does stay fresher longer - by SLIMLILA
