Now that I have all the stuff in my kitchen cabinets and pantry marked, after I come home from the super market I just have my Sharpie in hand and write the date on it before I put it away. It doesn’t take that much time, and it helps with making sure that I put the newer stuff in back so that I use the older stuff first. It is saving me on being wasteful, which I just can’t stand.
I am so excited about starting this, because I know that it will cute down on waste and save me the time of checking to make sure that I am using my groceries and toiletries in the most efficient way.
Please let me know if you do something like this too, or if you have any other ideas. Or if you are thinking about starting something like this!
