If you spot bugs in your flour, that’s got to go. Smell the flour when you don’t see any bugs. A foul odor indicates the flour is past its prime.

Beef

Cook thawed beef no more than three to five days after it has been in your refrigerator.

Coffee

Unopened coffee lasts around two years on your pantry shelf. Contrary to popular belief, coffee does not last longer by storing it in the freezer. Once you open the can, try to use it within two weeks.

Ice Cream
