Every year, people waste lots of food — a serious and saddening issue. If you sometimes throw out food because they have spoiled, these printables can help.
The printables come from popular meal-planning serviceCook Smarts. The produce shelf life guide tells you when to use fresh produce by, while the frozen food storage guide not only offers expiration dates for frozen foods but also how to store and use them.
Laminate the printables and you can use a dry-erase marker to note the expiration dates, as I’m doing above. Although there are other similar charts and resources for food expiration dates, these guides fit standard-size paper and won’t take up all the room on your fridge, so you can fit more handy kitchen graphics there. (The frozen foods guide is three pages, but you can hang them together with a strong magnet clip.)
Here are the two graphics. Print them out or head to Cook Smarts to get the PDF version emailed to you.
