    None, we just moved last week so I had to clean the fridge out. However before I did there was some spagetti I had made the first part of December and forgot all about. It was so bad I threw the entire thing out including the container. Oh and we had some grape jam and the expiration date was June 2002. Ops glad I dont eat grape jam but my son does.

    I cleared out the food cupboards at the beach house and some stuff was dated 1992............ and it had been opened and presumably eaten. Ew.

    Hmm... I think the fridge is ok, nothing rotting in there, but most stuff is definitely pas its due date, same in my cupboards. It doesn't bother me in the least.
    When I came home yesterday evening after a few days away I found a few very over-mature kiwis but I put them in the mixer with other fruit and I didn't have to run to the bathroom yet so I think they were still edible

    Mmm, I have lettuce and peppers that are beyond wilting. I vowed to make salads for work each day but never have the time in the morning. I'm lazy and need to be kicked out of bed

    That is an applaudable achievement SammysMom, no way could I keep a bottle of wine that long, it would have been glugged a long time ago!!!

    I'm known as a condiment queen, even though I never use half of them. I have a jar of spicy beans that I can't remember when I last opened, just tossed some similarly old olives, probably some rotting ginger root and some corn tortillas I forgot about that are now moldy. Oh well. Anything that gets pushed to the back is pretty much forgotten within a day or two.

    Booze, on the other hand, NEVER gets forgotten.

    I wonder what the shelf live is for things like jelly/jam, mustard, ketchup, mayo and salad dressing. I mean once its been open. I had heard that a jar of salsa once opened is only good for 5 days and that is pushing it.

    Don't know about salsa, but the kind I buy is organic and will last about two weeks as long as it's tightly sealed. I read recently that most condiments are good for about six months if sealed and properly refrigerated. I know I have some that are much older than that.

    I have a very. very squooshy fuzzy melon. I'd throw it out, but I don't want to touch it, so I'm going to make my sister do it.

    Most processed foods are so packed full of sugar and preservatives that they will last almost indefinitely provided they are airtight and refridgerated. If it smells or has green fur or is visibly moving then I tend to throw it out.
