Clean out your drawers or cabinets regularly. You just might find "new" items. This helps you to be frugal too, as you will not buy duplicates of items you have already!! Thank you for the inspiration for this one Latasha Wilson Lane!!
I have personally done this and found food items I didn't remember I had, luckily they were non-perishables. Its always nice finding things you can use, no matter what they are.
