OTH, you can push that far too far.

Pat, whose freezer failed, with the fridge to follow, this past Sunday. New one delivered Tuesday. Meanwhile, items whose date I didn't notice in the hectic rush were stashed in the cupboard rather than sent to various friends for storage .... let's just say "I asked for it! I got it! Turista!"

oh yes .. one of my uncles is part owner of a cheese import company ... in order to sell to some super market chains they are forced to put "best before" dates on cheeses, that are before the cheese is properly ripe (say nothing about spoiled)

family dinners with him are always a joy, since there will be a HUGE cheese selection (yum)
