I am weird. I "might" eat something if it's past the expiration date. It really depends on the item and how long. I have always wondered though, how do they (whoever they are) know when something will go bad? I have been doing some reading and some people say it's a scam to get you to buy more.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my perfect siggy
When you know better, you do better. And when you do better, you know HINTA.
That doesn't surprise me. I don't eat a lot of dairy so I don't buy a lot, and what I do buy we tend to eat by the expiry date. I rarely find something in the fridge that's over by one or two days...it tends to be weeks when it happens
Milk I go by the smell test...we buy bags, and the expiry date is on the little tag, which gets chucked when I put the bags in the fridge so I never know the expiry date!

Surprise baby! due 3/27/2017
I go by sight and smell, mostly. If it looks ok and smells ok and it's not weeks past the expiration date, I'll eat it. I am more careful about feeding stuff to LO, but for me and DH, I don't worry that much.
