1) Yogurt

If you keep your yogurt in the refrigerator and below 40° F / 5° C at all times, it will be safe to consume for up to two weeks beyond the "sell by" date.

2) Fresh Pasta

Fresh uncooked pasta that has been chilled and stored in an unopened package is still edible 7 to 10 days after the expiration date printed on the packaging.

3) Eggs

The "sell by," "use by," or "expiration" date on a carton of raw eggs can be extended by approximately three weeks if the eggs are kept chilled throughout their entire storage period.

4) Hot dogs

As long as they are unopened, hot dogs can be stored for up to 10 days after their expiration date. When they are ready for consumption, ensure that they have no strong or strange odor.

5) Shelf-stable Pasteurized milk

This milk has a shelf life of one month after its expiration date, or six months when unopened and stored at room temperature.

6) Boxed soups & purees

Unopened boxes and cans of soup, regardless of type, will maintain their best quality for 3-5 years after their expiration, provided they are stored in a dry, cold location.

7) Frozen vegetables

10 to 12 months beyond the date printed on the bag, frozen veggies will still be in excellent condition if they have been stored at a constant freezing temperature.

8) Spices

Whole spices often retain their freshness for four years, ground spices for three to four years, and dried and leafy herbs for one year.

9) Canned foods

It is not unexpected to hear that unopened canned foods have an indefinite shelf life, regardless of the "use by" date, provided they are undamaged.

10) Whole-Wheat Flour

Whole wheat flour can be carefully stored at room temperature for one to three months, in the refrigerator for six to eight months, and in the freezer for one year.
