Keep track of how long you’ve had lotions, make-up and other beauty products by using a sharpie to write your own expiration date on products. In my post on Bathroom Organization I included a handy little chart of how long you should keep your make-up and other toiletry items.
For items like coffee creamer and other refrigerated items that tell you they are good for 2 weeks once opened I usually take a sharpie and write the date I need to throw it out. I can never seem to remember when I opened it so this has helped me avoid consuming iffy items.
