8 Foods in Your Fridge To Check On!

I had been meaning to make some smoothies for weeks now. I had plenty of frozen raspberries and blackberries to use. I decided to finally make them a couple nights ago mainly because I found my yogurt hidden on the very last shelf in the fridge. Argh! Next time I get yogurt, I will put them on the first or second shelf for easy accessibility! Anyways, it got me wondering how long normal fridge staples would last past their "sell by" or "use by" dates. Some of these surprised me because these are normal things most of us have on hand at any given time. I think sometimes don't even realize how long it's been because things get moved to the back to make room for leftovers or that big Poke Cake you made just because. I'm normally really scared to drink milk a day over the date printed, but checking up on it, I will try to be less wasteful now. :)

Disclaimer: I am not claiming to be an expert on this. These are merely guidelines to keep in mind. If you're still unsure if something is safe, the smell or sight of the food can sometimes be enough!
