No sillies, you're not going to take your food out bowling or to the movies!
I mean write a date on your new food as you bring it into your home!
This might seem like a no-brainer to some, but I must be a what would you say, slow-learner.
As we were building a nice stockpile of dry goods, boxed foods, and canned foods I realized that I had no idea which things were oldest - that I should use up first. (Oh, and I also had to throw away several jars of organic mayo because it went past expiration, and looked really nasty).
Now if I were Martha Stewart and this were a perfect world, I would (and my family)would move the oldest packages to the front and the new to the back. Yeah, right, I'm doing good to get stuff put away! So, right when I bring it home from the grocery, I take a sharpie marker and write the purchase date on the package.
