Step 4: Keep it fresh
Restock when your cache gets low and track expiration dates so food doesn’t go to waste.
- Use a marker to write the date the product expires (not the date you bought it) on the package in a place that’s easy to see.
- Store new purchases behind older items to ensure that nothing sits in your pantry for too long.
- Before you head to the grocery store, check your pantry to see what you need and shop for the goods you can get free or very cheap after sales and coupons.
