How Long Should Your Food Lasts?

From time to time, I am so much particular about our food on the shelf and in the fridge. I mean, I do keep track of expiry dates, or how long will that stuff to keep. There are times wherein some food's expiry dates are not on it so, it's kinda risky.
I think it is always safe and is very important for us to keep track about them. Almost everything has a time after which it is better not to use or consume.

Here are some lists of important items we should keep track and how long do they last:

  • Sweetener - 2 years
  • Asparagus - 3-5 days, refrigerated; 8 months, frozen
  • Avocados - 2-3 days, refrigerated
  • Baking powder - 18 months
  • Baking soda - 2 years
  • Beef - 3-5 days, refrigerated; 6-9 months, frozen
  • Bread - 5-7 days, room temp; 1-2 weeks, refrigerated; 3 months frozen
  • Butter - 1-2 months, refrigerated; 9 months, frozen
  • Cheese - 4 weeks, opened (block, hard)
  • Coffee - 2 weeks, opened, room temp.
  • Dark chocolate - 2 years, kept in foil in a cool dark place

  • Eye gels/Creams/Mascara - 3 months
  • Eyeliner pencils - 2 years
  • Eyeliner liquids - 3-6 months
  • Eyeshadow powder - 2 years
  • Face wash - 18 months
  • Lotions - 6 months
  • Nail polish - 1 year
  • Powder blush - 2 years
  • Mouthwash - 3 years
  • Sunblock - 6 months
  • Toothbrush - 3 months
