The next time you use just half a jar of spaghetti sauce or put leftovers away, make sure you take out your marker first.
Jot down today’s date on the label, or on a piece of masking tape (for those leftovers).
This will allow you to easily identify (and toss!) those items in your fridge that have over-stayed their welcome.
How long does your opened/cooked food last the refrigerator, you ask?
• Pasta sauce = 4 days
• Chicken nuggets = 1-2 days
• Fresh orange juice = 6 days
• Deli meat = 3-4 days
