Happy new year, everyone! Now's a great time to check your cabinets for expiration dates. Keep in mind that many dates are arbitrary or "best by" dates, and not "you will die of food poisoning" dates (click here for a cheat sheet for food and household products). However, it's a good idea to try to use up old stuff. Make sure that anything with 2011 stamped on it is brought to the front of your cupboards and used first, while anything with 2013 or later is pushed to the back.
