Secrets of Success

Keep The Dates From Expiring



Save money by not exceeding safe storage dates. Skip the grocery store for a week or two. Make a list of everything you have on hand, post it next to your computer. Brainstorm meal ideas. Create menus and cross the items off your list as you use them.

  • Yes! I went a little crazy buying flowers at the annual plant sale and have been exploring in the pantry rather than buy groceries. It's amazing what foods are hidden away! - by MAUREENMOZ

    I do this too, when my cupboards are too full! Normally I only have to buy some meat to go with a great meal right from the cabinet! (I have a really small freezer) - by FIEVEL96

    great idea. I usually clean my cupboards out during big snow storms or when the boyscouts collect for food drives. - by CHUNK40
