Stockpile Organization – Expiration Dates
When I first started building our stockpile I did not have a way to organize our purchases and know when items expired. I would go through the stockpile and find items that were expired and no longer good and have to throw them out. I started using a permanent marker and marking in big numbers the expiration date of the product on the package. I spent a couple of days in the beginning going through everything that was in our stockpile labeling it and reorganizing it. Now everything has the expiration date written on it and is organized by date. When we go to get a box of cereal you can easily see which box expires the quickest. We try and always make sure and grab the item with the quickest expiration date.
