Apartment Therapy explains:

Make a “hurry up and eat” shelf in the kitchen. Make it visible. Sometimes the things that go bad are simply hidden behind everything else.

Yes, it’s an incredibly simple idea. But if you’re anything like me, all of your “about-to-expire” food items are scattered across your pantry and fridge. Having them all in one place makes it easy to see what you’re working with. This way, you can quickly find recipes based on those ingredients.

Put that shelf near the front of your fridge or pantry, and you also have a daily visual reminder to eat the stuff that’s about to expire. For more tips, head to Apartment Therapy’s full post.
