Re: Pantry

I also restock as needed/sales. (On occasion I overbuy a few things especially if I get a coupon/sale where the item is free. Franks red hot sauce is a good example.)

I label everything with dates. Then I put the new behind the old. I check every 6 months for expired or about to expired items. Normally if something is going to expire in the next 6 months I put it on special shelf that I use everything there first. I will make meal plans around it. In the past year, I only accidentally let 2 cans of beets expire. (I hate beets! They are were in DS's snack cabinet as he is the one that likes to eat them/requests I buy them.)
