How often do you open up the refrigerator to pull out a sauce, beverage or condiment and wonder “Is this still good”?

Unless the bottle looks like something out of a science lab there is nothing to really tell you whether or not your product is still good.  Of course, now there is ‘an app for that’. allows you to type in the item in question and find out how long it will last opened or unopened.  They also offer an app for your iphone.

Now, how do you know long it has been in the freezer or refrigerator?  For items with a label use a permanent marker to write the date you purchased it.  Once you open a product, cross out that date and write the date you opened the container.

To get you started, take 30 minutes this weekend to pull out everything from the door of your refrigerator.  Be ruthless.

Happy organizing!
