My Stockpile Management Plan

Several months ago there were some great deals on those little Post-It Signature Flags.  I bought a few for work, but then started to imagine they could help me manage my stockpile.  The kids spent a whole day checking expiration dates and flagging each perishable item in the stockpile.

If you click on the picture to see a larger version, you'll see that the flags have the expiration month written on them.  The color indicates the year.  Yes, I know what you are thinking.  I am insane.  And that's OK.  This method works for me. 

At a glance I can see when each item is expiring.  This is especially helpful for my just-turned-40 eyes that are having a tough time seeing small print like expiration dates.  (Hence me having the KIDS do this job!)
