i have been checking exprity dates on what we've been buying and then i've been writing the month and year on the product. it's been good for me to have to reallhy think about how much of a product we are going to use and how much we need.
i've noticed that some things don't seem to have...
Do iodine swabs expire? I know there are expiration dates on the packages...just wondering if that is something that really expires or if the company is just covering their rear? They are the swabs that they use in hospital settings if that has anything to do with anything.
Also, I have a...
Publix changed their sale dates. Now instead of running from Thursday morning until Wed night they are running from Monday morning until the second Wed. So a week and a half. Guessing maybe saving on sales ads? Went in to get a couple more jars of pickles at the BOGO before going off sale...
My husband is having a problem with the problem I have with expiration dates..
He says I throw things away to soon.. We just went through the spice cabinet and he found some spices missing, I said they expired.. Well, he had a problem with that.. I got informed "When I was a kid, my mom didn't...

Hi..I am new here, but have lurked a long time. Will post later on the welcome area, but I have a question for this group. I live in earthquake central..Southern California and have had some food and supplies stockpiled for years, probably about 2 weeks worth. But, I am feeling like starting...
It's been quite awhile since I've gone through my grocery stockpile so tonight... after Big Brother (wink, wink)... I'm gonna go through all my can goods, boxed food, etc. and weed out the expired ones.
Every bill comes due for me at the same time of the month, within the first week or so. We only get 2 paychecks a month, so it's kind of annoying that everything comes out of the first paycheck. If I were smart, I'd save the money from one paycheck to carryover to the other... but that so...
Has anyone ever called the cell phone or utilities to have them switch the due dates? DH retired and I am trying to get a once a month budget going with his pension check. We do our banking online and I like to set things to "go" when they are due(actually 2 days prior to due date). If I could...
~I need to buy some watch-type batteries for one of my dd's toys and I found a great deal on the ones I need. BUT they expire Jan 08. Are they just gonna die after 10 minutes of use? Does anyone else use nearly expired or past expiration batteries?~
Yesterday was the Post Office's big food drive collection. People were supposed to leave a bag of food for their mail carrier to collect.
Our church is a food pantry and there were alot of bags of food to be sorted.
As our Sunday School space was taken up by the sorting, I decided to pitch in...

Does anyone else think this whole story seems slightly bogus? Because if it is real, it is just plain poorly written.
