Are you Throwing Away Money?

Are You Throwing Away Money?

Chances are the answer is YES! 

Expiration Dates

Many people see an expiration date and panic.  If it’s passed the best buy/use by date, they will immediately throw it away…and that may be throwing away money for no reason!

That product may still be good.  Did you know most items are not even required by law to have an expiration date? Manufacturers put an expiration or best buy date on voluntarily. 

Why would they do this? 

Well, look at all those people who toss an item when it’s passed the date they put on the package. Now all those people will go out and BUY a new one. That’s more sales for the company.

That’s not to say items never spoil. Depending on the product and how long after the date, some items will still be safe to eat, but won’t be as fresh.  However, some will need to be tossed. So another reason they put a use by/sell by/expires date is to cover themselves.

But think about this….

How could the manufacturer possibly know the exact date an item will be “less fresh” or spoil? They can’t.

Many factors come into play. Was it shipped properly? Handled properly? Stored properly?

I am NOT saying that you will never throw away food. Some items WILL need to be tossed, but others are still quite safe to consume. Use your judgement when deciding whether or not an item is still safe to eat or if you should throw it away. If it looks or smells funny, throw it away, even if it is BEFORE the use by date.

Did You Know?

There are stores out there that sell products passed their sell by/use by dates? I am lucky enough to have one such store about an hour away from me.

It’s called The Auction Store in Swansea, Massachusetts. Let me tell you, the money I save is well worth the time and gas to go there! I’ve purchased candy bars for 25 cents, small bags of Oreos for 10 cents, milk, bacon, tons of frozen food, cereal, K-cups, and so much more!

Let’s not forget to mention the owners. When you go there, it’s like you are part of a family.  It’s such a different atmosphere than when you go to a large supermarket chain.

In conclusion,  if you buy something at the supermarket that they have at these salvage stores, you are throwing money out the window!  



Earning Station- Earn Gift Cards

There are a lot of survey sites out there, but not all of them are worth your time.

I would spend 10 minutes answering questions and then it would say I didn’t qualify. Don’t you hate that? What a waste of my time!

Well, you can actually accumulate a decent amount with this site fairly quickly. Then trade them in for gift cards. 

You can earn by…

  • Answering polls
  • Answering surveys
  • Watching videos you want to watch anyway
  • Playing Games
  • Shopping

GO HERE to start earning now!

WARNING: Your money earned expires! I used to visit the site almost daily but then life gets in the way. I didn’t know earned money expired and I lost over $22.00 for being inactive 🙁 If you aren’t active in 90 days, you forfeit all your earned money. So I suggest cashing in frequently.
