Prep Tip - X Date Codes Made Simple
The practice of revolving your stock of survival supplies on hand - medical/food/power/water etc can benefit from the use of simple date coding. In an emergency or when you are looking to expeditiously find something like the Benedryl that may need rotation - mark the various surfaces with the expiration - or "X" date as shown here. Simple no expense but if you are older or have poor vision then looking for the worn out or obscured date on the bottom of the box is an unnecessary chore. Spend time now to save valuable time later!!!
On dark colored containers you can use the silver colored Sharpie Metallic Marker 39100 described in earlier blogs here. Find them at Lowes or where construction supplies are found.
