OK, so i know you can't fix my poor memory but.....

With 3 young children and a constantly hungry husband, the fridge door is on the go all the time. There are so many jars, and tubs and cartons etc, that get opened but I never remember when they were opened. They almost all have "consume within" certain date stamped on them so I either end up throwing them away or taking a risk. I know you can push this a little beyond what they suggest. I tried using various marker pens to mark the date on them,but this often doesn't work on plastic or glass. Also, creating lists was just a pain.

Anyone else experience this ? Anyone got any bright ideas to help with my memory?

I usually go on visual and nasal inspection - i.e. if it looks OK, doesn't have anything furry on it and smells OK, then it's probably OK. grin

I am notoriously casual about these things though - generally more careful with teh DDs, but DH and I will take the risks.

I am like Poledra - look at it and sniff it - if it smells okay, isn't green or mouldy, I would definitely eat it. However, you can also stick a little label on and write the opening date on that.
