So is it okay to buy stuff that's almost expired cause it's on sale?

Kroger sells yogurt for 10 cents...1 DIME when it's within a week of expiring. I mean, I'm gonna eat it within a week or else I'll throw it out anyway, but I'm just not sure if it'll kill me or not.

I did it once but I felt sort of bad afterwards but that couldn't just been mental. Then somebody at work caught wind of it and I still get crap about it... I just need help!

Expired yogurt ...they do put expiration dates for a purpose .. was it stored properly and is it still sealed?? .. does it have live culture?? ...if its sealed and has live culture, it may be fine the yogurt cultures are good for you and would tend to keep other bacteria in check ..if it hasnt been stored well, seal is broken, doesnt have live culture, throw it away ... if some foreign bacteria has taken root there and multiplied, you could get sick ..the degree of sickness depends on the bacteria and how much of it ... are you feeling lucky??

Actually if its still in date I wouldnt worry much at all ..I tend to go by smell and look too ..I have always been very sensitive to dairy products, I sniff the milk first thing in the morning ..I can tell straight away if its "just on the turn" ...

haha I should have been more clear...it's still got a week before it expires

but you answered that anyway...it takes a woman's touch to mend a man's broken heart (and to bring him toilet paper when he's sick on the toilet)

they only sell motorcycle gas at certain places...usually in the back alleys next to the liquor store...trust me ive checked, asked, and looked around. This seems to be the only place i can fill up. I think they may be ripping me off though because they charge me $6 a gallon and i see other bikes at gas stations all the time.
