Quoting mickstinator:Depends on the item, but I do tend to be lax. Most use by days are no where near an item's actual disposal date.
Depends on what it is. If it smells bad I obviously won't use it regardless of the date.
Yes. But If it seems "off" before the use by date, it goes in the trash, anyway.
not always, it matters what it is.
Depends on the item, I usually give it the smell test or taste test.
depends on the product!!!
depends on what it is and how it smells. i am bad about milk, because i don't like it, I always think it smells spoiled.
for "Fresh" items, yes. for pantry items, not too much. I know a sealed box of cake mix might not be as GOOD, but it's not going to kill me if I use it a few months after that date.
