The 411 on Expiration Dates on Products

The 411 on Expiration Dates on Food Products

I had such a hard time figuring out expiration dates on food packages. I found this to be very helpful and I hope you find it just as helpful

Few things in the grocery store are more confusing than expiration dates on food products. When it says "Sell By 8/22/09," does that mean it has to be used by, or only sold by that date? Other products are even less clear, showing only a date with no explanation. Some canned or packaged products don't seem to have any date at all.

While most food processors date and code their products, the Food and Drug Administration mandates dating only on infant formula and baby food. Everything else is voluntary. Still, the food industry generally follows certain guidelines suggested by the FDA. Here's a quick overview of what all these food labels and dates mean:

My 12 Step Program

My 12 step plan to budget my time on the internet. I got the idea from a plurk buddy and thought I make it into my own

1. I will have a cup of coffee in the morning and read my NEWS PAPER like I used to, before the Web. I wonder if they still deliver them?

2. I will eat breakfast with a knife and fork and not with one hand typing. Come on admit you have done this!

3. When I am getting dressed not to remind myself to check my email again.

4. I will make an attempt to clean the house, wash clothes, and plan dinner before even thinking of logging on to the Internet.

7.I will read a book... if I still remember how. I am working on one now which is taking me a month just …

August Soap Sale!!!

For 1 week only, we are having a huge soap sale Bonanza. We really need to reduce inventory to make room for our Fall soap line that is currently curing as I speak. If you never heard of our Soap Sale before and what it is. Well plain and simple, we are reducing the price of most of our soap line (excluding our clearance soaps). This also includes our Soap packages of 4, 6, and 8 lots of soap to save you even more money when you buy these bulks listings. And of course when you purchase any of our bulky soap packages, shipping will always be 5.00 to ship anywhere in the US. Canada shipping prices for 6-8 bars of soap will average around 9.95 but please ask for a quote to be sure for Canada shipping. We will only ship 8 bars of soap to other countries for 12.95 flat rate. It will be much cheaper to ship them this way.

So to take a sneak peak into what soaps that will be on sale... take a look

We will also have our Eco Friendly Laundry Soap on sale as well. This is a great way to try thi…
