Quick Tip: Rotate Food to Keep it Fresh

Have you ever gone digging through your kitchen cupboards, only to find items that are years past the expiration date? If so, you’re not alone!

Here’s a quick tip to help you enjoy food while it’s at its freshest:

When you get home from the grocery store, place newer items at the back of your cupboard. The older items will get moved to the front, so you’ll use them first.

Do the same thing for items in your refrigerator and freezer.

The result: you’ll waste less food and save money in the process.

And before you throw any food out, be sure to consult our Keep It or Toss It database to find out storage times for specific foods.
