Have you ever used something from your pantry only to realize that something may seem off with it? It’s definitely happened to most of us, and we keep wondering why that happened in the first place. Most likely, a lot of the items you keep stored there are groceries that have a very long shelf life, with truly shocking expiration dates that can even be years from now. But can they really be stored for so long after they have been opened?
The simple answer is no, they cannot be. Despite their far away expiration date and the old perceptions that grains truly cannot expire, you cannot store items in your pantry indefinitely. We all keep such a close tab on the food in our fridge, that we forget that as eternal the food in the pantry seems, it is still perishable. More so than we thought, so we think it’s time for you to have a look at what is in your pantry to check if anything needs to be replaced stat.
Here we have made a list of the 6 most common pantry items no one thinks they should replace regularly or at least check on from time to time.
