Spring arrives Wednesday. So why not do some spring cleaning? When it comes to the kitchen, Fareway Registered Dietitian Whitney Packebush shows us what we should keep and what we should toss in our Centsable Health segment.
The first day of spring is Wednesday, March 20, 2013 and over 77 percent of Americans take part in some kind of "spring cleaning".
Taking an inventory of your food is a great way to save some money. Try to plan recipes around foods that you need to get rid. Soups and casseroles tend to be great dinners to add miscellaneous ingredients.
Canned foods keep for one year. Check the expiration date.
Pasta: 12 - 18 months
Unopened flour: 1 year
Opened flour: 6 months
Condiments (salad dressings, ketchup, olives): 1 year
Remember FIFO: First In, First Out
When in doubt, throw it out
