If any of you are like me (which I'd like to think you are if you're reading), you'll appreciate the website StillTasty which does exactly what it says. It lets you know if your food is still good to eat or if you should toss it in the old garbage can. I was actually shocked to discover the short shelf life on some of my regular fridge items. Ground turkey, for example, only lasts 1-2 days in the fridge before it's no good to eat whereas fresh eggs last 3-5 weeks! Enter in a few of your staple items, I think you'll be surprised.
