  1. I think it’s great to buy food in bulk, but remember to make a plan with the food you do buy. For example, I always buy nuts in bulk and freeze them. We make a salad about once a week, which I always top with the nuts. This means we have tasty salads and no nuts go to waste. 🙂

      I never was a salad person – I enjoyed them but never made a habit of eating them regularly – until I started adding more fun foods like nuts, meat, and fruit to the mix. I had never heard of freezing nuts, but that’s a great idea, Mrs. Picky Pincher.

  2. I think organizing is important. Come to think of it, it’s time to take inventory of our pantry and rotate items to make sure I use up foods that are about to expire. But you’re right about expiration dates. They’re only guidelines. I’m most careful with grains because they can get buggy. I’ll use rice or couscous that’s a few months older past the sell by date but I’d rather toss out anything older than that. With dairy it’s easier since you can do the sniff test.
