My Daily Thrifty Tip for January 3, 2011

#35 Dig deeper for the freshest products! Back in my high school days I worked for a grocery store. When new products came in we had to rotate the merchandise on the shelves to ensure freshness. This isn't a big deal for a box of cereal that won't expire for months to come, but it is a big deal on milk, eggs, produce, etc. You want your food to stay fresh longer so that your food doesn't end up in the trash before you get a chance to eat it! When I buy salad mix, I always pull from the back to find the package with the latest expiration date. It may only be 3 days difference, but sometimes that means the difference between the trash and a healthy salad on the table!
