There's nothing wrong with pre-packaged food that has a week (or more — that 'week' sounds like exaggeration to me) to go before expiration. Try looking at your eggs and milk at your local grocery store, that stuff generally has a week to go once you buy 'em (especially if they're 'organic'). looking down your nose at dollar-store offerings is easy when you're a kid and you've never had to buy anything for yourself before, but for adults with some common sense, there's no shame in stopping by a dollar store instead of hitting up a full-blown supermarket for certain things.

This is too true. I never turn my nose up at cheap.

This exactly. Cheap snacks that i dont have to pay a fortune for. Not all of its great but some of its pretty dang good and cant beat a buck as opposed to a $4 bag of chips.

Oh man, you kids and your paranoia over expiration dates. Take a look at some other product with an expiry date and think about it logically. I've seen "20 years matured" cheese and "filtered through [insert mountain here] for many years" bottles of water with expiry dates within the next few weeks. Well gee, didn't you sell me that just in the nick of time? Expiry dates err on the side of caution massively and a lot of the time are entirely unnecessary. That is to say, they expect you to go "oh well this is out of date", bin it, and then purchase another one. The product is totally fine, so don't bother. Them Cheetos will last weeks, even months.

I will not understand expiry dates on products like cheese, milk or bread. Cheese is, by definition, a gone-off product (so really I suppose the expiry date should read "20 years ago"). It's inedible when its mouldy, and I can usually tell that by looking at it. Milk is off when it smells foul, or worse resembles yoghurt; and bread is off when its hard or growing fur. I do not need expiry dates for this. I just need eyes and common sense.

Edit: Expiry dates on meat. I'd follow expiry dates on meat. But simply because the risk factor of food poisoning goes from "feels a bit sick" to "feels a bit dead." Dates on fresh meat isn't something I like to risk. But most everything else: if it looks right, smells right and tastes right, then it almost certainly is right.

I've never gotten anything refrigerated at Dollar Store before, but there's nothing wrong with any of the dry goods I've gotten there (although they only carry the Chow Mein mirowavable noodles, instead of the Yakisoba ones, which I like more).

Have you ever been to a dollar store? I'm sure you have. Look at the EXP Date on the food and notice how it's been there for about three months. You'd think $1 is an amazing price for a giant bag of Cheetos, until you see the EXP Date is one week from then. Nobody purchases food from the dollar store. You shouldn't either.

But without an expiration date on milk and bread how are you going to tell in the store if the milk is close to being off or if the bread is close to getting hard? The employees always frown at me when I open all of the milk containers for a good sniff or give their packaged bread a hard poking.

Who cares? Most foods last way past their expiration date.

Sure, food is still edible for some time after the expiration date (ignoring perishables of course). Being palatable is another matter.

I poured some 2 weeks expired milk on my cereal a while back. It was sour and chunky. I need to pay more attention to those expiration dates.
