    I am moving and and working on the new kitchen. I was thinking about using Newspaper as shelfpaper and wanted to see what you guys think? Do you think the newsprint will rub off on the shelf?
  3. Just Tips
    I found out about this great website, StillTasty: Your Ultimate Shelf Life Guide - Save Money, Eat Better, Help The Environment - it lists all types of foods, with shelf life before it's opened, after it's opened. I checked all kinds of things that I did not have a good sense of. I hope you...
  4. Kitchen Basics
    I don't know if this has been posted here or not, but I just found a website that you can enter any given food, beverage, spice, etc and it will tell you the shelf life, as well as the best way to store that food item. I thought this was great! Link:

  6. Kitchen Basics
    Hi everyone! I'm in the process of reorganizing my pantry and finding things I didn't remember having. I just found a LARGE tub of plain, old fashioned oatmeal, probably around 5 or 6 pounds, maybe a little more. Anyway, I don't know when I bought it, although I think it's been a year or two...
  7. Stockpiling
    Trying to get a better stockpile going for emergency situations, wondering what types of canned products last the longest...and how closely do you watch the exp. dates? We don't use a lot of canned goods from day to day, and having super picky eaters it can be hard to intergrate them into our...
  8. Question and Answer
    What do you think the shelf life is for Hamburger Helper? I checked the boxes that we have on hand, and there is no expiry date. I've tried googling the answer but nothing seems to give an answer. Why would a product not have an expiry? Please don't give me an explanation as to how...
  9. Clay Pot Crafts
    hubby screwed them on through hole on bottom instead of trying to match a little trim to keep them from falling off.
  10. Question and Answer
    Some of the posts on long term storage of food got me to wondering how long vitamins last? I have an unopened bottle of vitamins that expired in 2007... I was wondering if the vitamins would still be okay. The bottle was opaque plastic so light couldn't destroy them. Being the cheap,
  11. Preparedness and Survival
    Does water "go bad"? Or just start to taste wierd? Is there a risk of a stockpiled water supply being contaminated in some way by the time you might need it? DH and I are discussing water supply currently and wondered if it might be more efficient just fo find/buy/create a few alternatives for...

  13. Kitchen Basics
    I have two cans of powdered milk. Each makes 5 gallons. Don't ask where I got it from. It is a long story. Anyway, was wondering how long I can keep it without opening it. There is not a use by date on the can. I am hoping they have a long shelf life. I know I will be using them up...
  14. Kitchen Basics
    I figured Kitchen Pantry would be about the best place to fit this. It isn't a challenge but it is decluttering and organizing. I ordered a spice tray (best price found was $30) and even though it is pricey, I needed something to keep it all from tumbling down on me and not look as jumbled and...
  15. Home Environment
    all my kitchen drawers and cabinets. I've had more fun in the dentist office. I'm done with the bottom cabinets and the drawers. Now the trash closet has paint on the ceiling and I'll paper it tomorrow. Then it's the pantry and the 2 cabinets above that.....on to the top cabinets next...... . I...

  18. Drugstore & Grocery Store Deals/Product Reviews
    I've run into this problem at BOTH of my local Rite Aids- they have sales for items that are free after rebate, or almost free- but the wrong items that are on sale, or are similar, but NOT on sale are marked incorrectly. For example: Rite aid has a FAR offer specificaly for a new line of...
